The Real Housewives of Atlanta

The once-inseparable friendship between “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” (RHOA) reality show stars Kandi Burruss (pictured left) and Kim Zolciak (pictured) has probably been irretrievably broken since the two will be duking it out in court.  Burruss is reportedly suing Zolciak over the song “Tardy for the Party,” alleging copyright infringement. What makes the case a tad more intriguing is that Burruss’s “RHOA” co-star Phaedra Parks, who is an entertainment attorney, will be her legal representative, reports the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

The lawsuit was reportedly filed in Atlanta on March 12th and contends that Burruss wrote and produced the hit song four years ago. The court document further states that Zolciak, who is no longer a part of the “RHOA” franchise but who stars on her own reality Bravo-backed series “Don’t Be Tardy for the Party,” has unlawfully licensed, distributed, and sold the song.

The once-catchy club favorite was also removed from iTunes because of the legalities that surround it and has since been reinstated with new album artwork.

Zolciak spoke with Too Fab regarding the lawsuit, “This is nothing short of a publicity stunt. I find this lawsuit funny yet sad. Coming after me now and this song is 4 years old? I have in fact overpaid Kandi and have documents to prove it, and my legal team will handle this accordingly.”

Burruss has stated on her reality show that she felt financially shortchanged after working with Zolciak on the song. The former member of the R&B group Xscape also mentioned on “RHOA” that she has made practically nothing for her instrumental part in the creation and production of the song with the ditty lyrics.

Besides feeling undercompensated, Burruss is also reportedly peeved at the fact that Zolciak “stole” the name she wanted to use in case she ever gave birth to a son.  Zolciak and her NFL hubby, Kroy Biermann, named their last son Kash, which was supposedly Burruss’s reserved name.

With the court battle being set, Burruss is reportedly going hard by requesting a temporary restraining order to halt any future sales of the song and is seeking punitive damages, attorney’s fees, and a trial by jury.
