Don’t Be Tardy for the Payment: Kandi Burruss Sues Kim Zolciak Over Royalties

March 16, 2013 04:00 PM by Shayla Perry

More drama for Kim Zolciak! After being evicted by her former friend/landlord, the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum is now being sued by her one time BFF, Kandi Burruss, over royalties that Kandi says she never received for the song she wrote and produced for Zolciak, “Don’t Be Tardy for the Party.”

Well this is a surprise! Four years after the release of her hit single, “Don’t Be Tardy for the Party,” Kim Zolciak is being sued by her former Real Housewives of Atlanta  cast mate and friend, Kandi Burruss.

During the Season 3 reunion show, a tearful Burruss complained that at the time, Zolciak had made at least $80,000-$100,000 for the song that she wrote and produced. Of that, Kandi was only paid $3,000 or $4,000…well under the amount that she was due.

Burruss said that she didn’t like to argue with friends about money, but now it seems that she’s ready for an all out fight…in court that is. And her lawyer? None other than Mrs. Phaedra Parks!

The suit was filed on Tuesday, March 12th, which we’re sure made for some awkward (read: juicy) moments during the Season 5 reunion show that was taped the next day!

And we’re positive that’s not the only issue between the ladies that Bravo boss Andy Cohen will bring up. In addition to her royalties, Kandi claims that Kim also stole her baby name when she and hubby Kroy Bierman named their second son, Kash.

Kandi may not be looking forward to the reunion special, but we sure are!

Tell us RTVM, are you Team Kandi or Team Kim on this one? Should Kim fork over the money for “Don’t Be Tardy for the Party,” or do you think Kandi waited too long to file the lawsuit? Sound off in the Comments section below.

    It doesn’t matter if Kandi waited 4 months or 4 years,Kim owes her and should pay up. I’m sick of Kim’s drama. The reunion show will be very interesting.

    I think Kandi should of done this along time ago, it is going to look bad in court, since they have been portrayed as friends all this time, if she is doing it out of spite beause of the baby name thing, she is wrong,but if its because she really believes she earned that money, then yes I think Kim should just pay her what she is due, after all Kim talks as if she is well to do,so this shouldn’t be a hardship for her,Kim just pay your friend what she has earned!!

    Kim, News flash…You can’t sing! You’re tone deaf. Kandi and her team used every trick, auto-tune, voice over, etc. to try and make you sound good when you recorded this track. And, at the gay event, Kandi got on the stage to sing with you. She saved you from what would have been a very embarassing “performance.” That said, Kim, pay up! Finally, pls. do us a favor, vocalists and musicians everywhere, NEVER, “sing” and/or record another song. Kudos to Kandi. You truly have the patience of Job. Damn, you definitely earned your money. Listening to Kim “sing,” was comparable to fingernails scratching a black board. Again, Kim, PAY KANDI!! I rest my case.

    I cannot believe Bravo gave Kim a spin off show. Bravo has no
    limit, apparently.
