Instead of pleading the fifth in regard to the tax lien story that’s been circulating about her, NeNe Leakes took to Twitter to make fun of the accusations. NeNe does not seem to be back down from her self-declared “I’m rich, bitch” stance.
In typical NeNe fashion, she circles around the accusations that she owes over $824K in back taxes from 2014. She doesn’t actually deny that she owes the money. Instead, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star just denies that she is broke. Just because NeNe may or may not owe the government money, that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have some other cash to spare. So I’m willing to bet that there’s some truth to this story since she did not outright deny the story with her tweets.

NeNe’s public persona is reliant on her having money, so these accusations about the tax lien are probably infuriating her.
So what was her response? Instead of saying it wasn’t true, NeNe deflected with some humor. In one tweet she wrote, “4 all those that r asking, reporting, & concern…Yes I am broke & unemployed. Just another dumb Celeb that doesn’t know how 2 money manage.”
In all honesty, I feel like NeNe or whoever works for her is trying to find some way to spin this whole thing into a clever message t-shirt that she can sell. But anyway, like I said before, owing money does not necessarily mean that someone is poor, it just means that they did not pay for something. So, I find it odd that NeNe is not actually addressing the “rumors.”
NeNe also tweeted, “My priorities r all screwed up! I’m just a damn fool out here about to lose my house! Please start a Go Fund Me.”
Yeah, that still doesn’t actually answer the questions about unpaid taxes, and it just makes NeNe look like she is not taking this at all seriously – regardless of how true the story is.
TELL US – WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT NENE’S TWEETS? WERE THEY APPROPRIATE? DID THEY EFFECTIVELY SHUT DOWN THE RUMOR?
