Sheree Whitfield, who stars on the Real Housewives of Atlanta is reportedly, knee-deep once again, in financial woes. The wannabe fashion designer and feisty cast member is allegedly being hauled into court by a contracting company for failure to fork over $15,450 in unpaid bills for work that is being done on her very controversial and forever-manse-in-the-works, “Chateau Sheree,” states the Atlanta Constitution-Journal.
The lawsuit which was filed by Stoploss Specialists, an emergency response contractor on December 17 of this year at Atlanta’s Fulton County Superior Court, not only demand payment but have tacked on yet another $7,550 in late fees and other charges.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting today that Sheree, 39, owes two separate law firms more than $180,000 in divorce-related fees.
According to AJC, Sheree was first sued last year by attorney Steve Montalto for more than $87,000 in unpaid fees related to her divorce to ex-husband Bob Whitfield. The lawsuit has yet to be resolved.
Montalto says Sheree has “ignored and stonewalled any effort to respond to post-judgment discovery about her assets and income,” He has asked a judge to force her to respond and to threaten her with incarceration. “She thinks she’s above the law,” he said.
The next lawsuit was filed just days ago on June 10 by Weinstock & Scavo. The law firm began working with Sheree in 2007, and alleges she owes them $96,190.18 in fees related to her divorce. Even worse, interest on the owed amount has mounted to $18,709.07.
This news doesn’t come as a big surprise as Sheree’s financial struggles has been well documented in the press. She lost her home to foreclosure just last year. Sheree has yet to comment on the lawsuits.
