Kim Zolciak’s dream home construction is anything but dreamy right now. The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star and her hubby, who are still in the middle of renovating their sprawling Georgia mansion, are now being ordered to pay back taxes on the property – or they risk losing their dream home forever.
The past few months have been pretty busy for Kim Zolciak, to say the least. In addition to welcoming twins in November and expanding her brood of four to six, the ex-Real Housewives of Atlanta star and her NFL player husband Kroy Biermann have been busy overseeing renovations on their dream home. The couple purchased the 7,000-square foot property back in 2012 for $880,000, and since then, they’ve been transforming the 5-bedroom home into one that features a 2-story master closet, a grand staircase and eight fireplaces – because, ya know, seven fireplaces wouldn’t be enough.
However, Kim and Kroy hit a snag last month when they apparently ran out of money to finish the renovations.The couple was forced to take out another construction loan for $300,000 so contractors could complete the work, which some of our Facebook friends found a little amusing. So they’re probably really laughing now, since RadarOnline has learned that Kim and Kroy were just thrown into another financial tailspin – this time for back taxes.
According to the gossip site, Kim and Kroy were recently served with tax liens totaling over $12,000. One is from the City of Milton, Georgia, while the other is from Fulton County, and both say they want their money by April 11. If the couple don’t cough up the dough by then, their dream home may prove to be their worst nightmare, because officials will have the right to seize the property.
The clock is ticking, guys. Maybe they could go with a measly one-story closet, or cut the number of fireplaces in half to reduce construction cost to pay the taxes. Just an idea…
But what do you think? Do you think Kim and Kroy will pay the money to save their house, or are they all tapped out cash-wise? Sound off below, or head to Twitter to tell us what you think!
