It seems that Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann’s divorce was a long time coming, and their financial issues played a huge role in their split.
Multiple sources confirm that Kim and Kroy’s ongoing financial problems caused their recent split.
One source tells PEOPLE:
Kim Zolciak had not told anyone, not even family. She didn’t tell anyone; even [her] friends were kept in the dark. The money has been a huge issue. The million-dollar tax [payment] was just way too much pressure on them.”
While the second source insists that “no cheating on either side” took place, fans can’t help but wonder if infidelity also played a part in Kim and Kroy’s split.
“There’s no cheating on either side. The money has a lot to do with the split, but there were other factors,” the second source said. “He’s been managing [the family] for a long time, so he technically did have a job. They’re not on good terms right now.”
However, back in December, Deux Moi released a Blind Item, alleging that Kim and Kroy were in an “open marriage.”
The Blind Item read:
“This former Housewife fav (or fave to hate? idk) is in an open marriage. I was hooking up with her hubby for a few months on and off. “
Just before the news of Kim and Kroy’s divorce broke in the media, TMZ reported that they owe the IRS over $1,000,0000 in back taxes.
According to TMZ, Kim and Kroy owe “$1.1M to the IRS for unpaid taxes, interest, and penalties from 2013, 2017, and 2018 — they also owe the state of Georgia $15K for unpaid taxes for 2018.”
Kim and Kroy’s country club mansion in Alpharetta, GA, went into foreclosure in February. They are currently still living in the home.
Meanwhile, five years before their split, Kim insisted that divorcing Kroy was “not an option.”
“That’s not an option in my house,” Kim said in a 2017 interview with Fox News via Page Six. “I would never allow a show to impact my marriage in any way. My marriage is definitely first.”
As AllAboutTRH previously reported, the news that Kim filed for divorce broke on Monday. The former Don’t Be Tardy star listed April 30 as the date of separation between her and Kroy. Kim cited that she and Kroy’s marriage was “irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation.” The Bravoleb requested primary physical custody of the kids and joint legal custody. She also wants spousal support and to have her maiden name, Kim Zolciak, legally restored.
