Tardy with The Payments: Kim Zolciak-Biermann Ordered To Pay AMEX $215K Credit Card Debt Amid Home Foreclosure Drama [Details]

Posted February 22, 2023

The finances of Kim Zolciak-Biermann continue to be a topic of discussion.

According to reports, the former ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ and ‘Tardy For The Party’ star was ordered to pay American Express $215k after blowing off a lawsuit that accused her of refusing to pay her credit card bill, RadarOnline.com has learned.

The news comes just days after it was confirmed that Kim and her husband Kroy Biermann are facing foreclosure on their Georgia home. The news of their

According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, back in November 2018, Kim was sued by American Express National Bank in Georgia court.

The suit said that Zolciak had refused to pay up on a $215,925.90 bill despite numerous demands.

“[Zolciak] agreed to pay and was obligated to pay [American Express] for all extended credit on [Zolciak’s] account”, the suit read.

American Express said it brought the lawsuit after growing tired of waiting for Zolciak to pay up. Court records show Kim’s husband Kroy Biermann was served with the legal papers at their Alpharetta, Georgia home on February 19, 2018.

Despite being served, Zolciak blew off the lawsuit and never bothered to appear in court. As a result, the judge granted American Express’ motion for a default judgment on May 9, 2019.

The court ordered Zolciak to pay $215,822.68 in damages. The credit card company has been attempting to collect on the debt for years.

In early 2020, American Express fired off paperwork to garnish Kim’s bank account at Suntrust Bank. At the time, the credit card company said Kim had failed to pay off the judgment. It said the amount had grown with interest and other costs to $216k.

This news comes amid the ongoing foreclosure drama that Kim and Kroy are facing on their home.

The Alpharetta mansion is in foreclosure after the couple defaulted on a $1.65 million loan they took out on the property in October 2012, according to a notice shared last week by Fulton County. Truist Bank plans to auction off the property on March 7 in front of the Fulton County Courthouse.

A source close to Kim tells PEOPLE that she is still unbothered by the news. “She is telling everyone this is a misunderstanding and is being sorted out,” the source says, adding, “She’s not moving.”

Rumors of the foreclosure actually broke last year, and Kim took to her Instagram to shoot down the claims. Now, with the rumors resurfacing again, she is apparently still denying it.

She previously denied reports that the property was in foreclosure with a video posted on her Instagram Story captured by @BravoHousewives in November 2022.

“Ok you guys, my house has not sold for $257,000,” she started in the clip, panning around the interior of her home. “If you guys think I would let my home that we’ve put millions and millions of dollars into go for $257,000, you’re an idiot, okay? For real.
