Kim Zolciak is now seeking full custody and a “total divorce” from Kroy Biermann despite recently asking the judge overseeing their case to dismiss their original divorce petitions.
The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star made the shocking claims in new court documents recently filed and later obtained by Page Six. According to the gossip outlet’s write up, Kim now agrees that her marriage to Kroy is “irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation” and listed their date of separation as September 7, 2023.
Kim Zolciak wants primary physical custody of Kroy “KJ” Jr., 12, Kash, 11, and twins Kaia and Kane, 10, but she is open to joint legal custody with Kroy Biermann, believing he “should have liberal visitation” with their young children.
The RHOA star makes a slew of other requests in the documents including asking for temporary and permanent child support, temporary and permanent alimony, and that all pre-marital “assets, gifts, and inheritances” are “retained and reassigned” to their “rightful owner.” Kim also wants Kroy to cover her attorneys’ fees.
Contesting the divorce
It is an interesting move for Kim considering she was contesting almost all parts of the divorce up until recent weeks.
As recently reported on TVDeets.com, Kim Zolciak was contesting her divorce from Kroy Biermann, recently stating that the two were engaging in sexual relations and therefore, were not on the path to divorce.
Kroy, for his part, then filed docs in the court stating that he wanted to move forward with the divorce despite any relationship he has with his estranged wife.
“The fact that he engaged in sexual relations with Respondent does not indicate a desire to reconcile,” reads a motion in the case obtained by Radar Online, adding that Kroy’s team says he “remains steadfast in his desire to divorce” the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star.
In another example, Kim Zolciak had been reportedly refusing to vacate the family home but the soon-to-be ex-couple have now listed the Georgia residence for a cool $6 million, according to TMZ.
“[Kim] made it clear that she does not intend to leave the residence, despite the fact the home is currently in pre-foreclosure,” Kroy’s attorney says in court documents filed in the case. “She has stated that she prefers to file for bankruptcy; a move that will ensure that the parties and their children will remain under the same roof for a significant period of time.”
He continued, “Without the receipt of equity from the sale of the marital residence, the parties cannot afford to move out of the residence and into new residences.”
Reality TV comeback
While there are no plans for Kim to return to Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kroy Biermann has alleged in court documents that he believes Kim is using their separation to get back on reality TV.
“Based on previous experience, [Kroy] is concerned that [Kim] will use the television show to garner attention by discussing the divorce and exposing the children to behavior that would be great for TV ratings, but not for the mental health and wellbeing of the children,” reads the motion filed by Kroy’s legal team in early June.
Since that motion, Kim was announced as part of the cast for MTV’s upcoming The Surreal Life reboot, recently completing filming on the series in Los Angeles.
