Kim also wants a judge to toss out the lawsuit claiming it has no merit according to TMZ. Kim is adamant that not only has she already fairly compensated Kandi for her services, but she paid in excess by $6,000! Kim also insists that Kandi doesn't even believe her own suit as she is simply attempting to pull a Sheree and use the courts to get attention.
Apparently the other female passenger "mistakenly" assumed Kim and Kroy tried to join the mile-high club in the bathroom and the woman decided a little mid-flight ménage à trois might be fun so she tried to join the party.
Kim has been doing nothing but talking – and trashing Kandi – to the media, on twitter, and with really badly written and poorly editedPR statements. Now Kandi, represented by fellow Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks, is explaining what led to the lawsuit. And as predicted Kandi is saving most of her comments for their day in court!
"It’s time for the whole ordeal to be over. I asked TuneCore to take the song down in December 2012. They did. Kim sent an affidavit to put it back up, which they did," Kandi reveals in her statement. "TuneCore then informed me that in order for the song to be taken down permanently I would need to file suit to have it removed."
Kandi and co-plaintiff Rodney Richard (aka Don Vito), who is the co-writer and co-producer, are suing TuneCore along with Kim!
A week after Kandi Burrussfiled a lawsuit against Kim in federal court over royalties, non-payment, and rights to use the song 'Tardy For The Party,' Kim continues to desperately exonerate herself by slamming Kandi in the media and on twitter. Among other things, Kim has called Kandi a famewhore seeking publicity and a liar. Kandi has not commented.
Going one step further, the Don't Be Tardy star put out an official press release giving her perspective on the lawsuit. It is of no surprise that Kim takes no responsibility and accuses Kandi of lies and negligence. Furthermore this is the most professional (ha!) press release ever. Is Brielle not only Kim's songwriter but her PR rep too?
"The lawsuit led by Kandi Burruss and Rodney Richard aka Don Vito against Kim Zolciak-Biermann over the song 'Tardy For The Party' is without merit and suspicious in its timing," Kim's official statement begins.
Years after the release of Don't Be Tardy For The Party (which also spawned the name of Kim'stwo spinoffs), the original writer of the song Kandi Burruss is suing Kim for nonpayment!
Kandi was shown writing the song on Real Housewives of Atlanta. She also produced the song for Kim. Several times she tried to recoup monies owed to her for both royalties and production/writing fees. Kim made a ton of excuses and then used the money to buy wigs, cigs, and other Kim necessities, like self-tanner and booze.
“We’re trying to be peaceful with each other,” NeNe told PEOPLE Thursday at Tao Las Vegas. “Kim and I have an up-and-down relationship. Don’t be surprised if we have a falling out again. That’s just how we are.”
Throughout the second season of the show, Kim and NeNe fought and made up. Then, Kim accused NeNe of choking her. They also fought because Kim refused to let NeNe sing on her hit song “Tardy For The Party”.
Now that the 2nd season is over, the two remain civil. Recently, both NeNe and Kim were spotted having dinner in Los Angeles. The frenimies certainly know how to have fun together especially over a glass of wine. According to NeNe, they will continue to be civil as anyone can expect. “We’re not friends and we will probably never be friends,” NeNe said, “but we’re just trying to be respectful”.
During the second part of the Real Housewives of Atlantareunion, Kim Zolciakattacked our ear drums performed her hit song, ‘Tardy For The Party.’ Kim’s performance was then followed by that of her fellow castmate, Kandi Burruss, who also performed her hit song – ‘Fly Above.’ The contrast between the two performances was quite telling to say the least.
So The Question of The Day Is, Even Though The Song Is a Hit, Was Kim’s Performance A Hit or Miss?
