Well this turn of events should make for an interesting reunion show: Kandi Burruss has filed a lawsuit against Kim Zolciak. Over what you ask?
You guessed it... "Tardy for the Party."
According to Radar Online, Kandi, who co-wrote the song, is suing for copyright infringement. The lawsuit, which was filed in Atlanta on March 12th, accuses Kim of not showing her the money. The other co-writer, Rodney Richard, has also filed a lawsuit against Kim.
The court documents state, “Without Plaintiffs’ authorization, license or consent, Plaintiffs’ Sound Recording embodying a performance of Plaintiffs’ Composition was commercially released as a single record… on or around, September 29, 2009 by Defendant TuneCore in agreement with Defendant Zolciak.
“Defendants marketed and sold the Infringing Single in various formats (e.g., compact disc, downloadable audio track, DVD, etc) and through various websites, all without Plaintiffs’ license, consent or authorization.”
The suit also seeks an accurate account of how much money the song has made, a restraining order against future sales, and a request for the“destruction of all copies of the Infringing Single and any other product of Defendants that infringe Plaintiffs copyrights.”
All this legal drama shouldn’t really surprise us. The tiff has been featured on the show, in reunions, and more since 2010.
Oh, and guess who’s repping Kandi in court? You guessed right again -- Phaedra Parks! Who’s guessing this is going to be the most explosive reunion show ever?
Until then, we'll focus on Ms. Kenya Moore's drama this Sunday at 8/7c. Here's a sneak:
