Things just keep getting worse for Kathryn Dennis. Less than a month after getting blasted in a racially-charged social media scandal, the Southern Charm star is back in the headlines because of a financial lawsuit.
This time, Kathryn is being sued by a professional image consultant. She hired her to revamp her look but allegedly never paid for her services.
In a public court filing obtained by The Sun, Charleston-based brand consultant Katherine Leonard detailed her complaint against the reality star. “I was brought on to help Ms Dennis to rebrand herself and worked in good faith to achieve all the goals we set out for her,” the documents read. “Once she gave me a deposit we began to work on meeting said goals on a strict deadline. She accepted my services and I performed them perfectly.”
However, when it came time to pay for the remainder beyond the initial deposit, Leonard claims Kathryn dodged the bill sent by her consulting company, KL Creative. “Two letters have been sent by a lawyer to her to no avail,” the suit continues. “I now have no choice but to file here in order to get paid for the work I performed for her in Nov, 2019!”
According to Leonard’s filing, the Southern Charm star’s outstanding bill totals $4,908, plus the $80 cost of filing the paperwork with Charleston County. Kathryn had 30 days from when she was summoned on April 1 to respond to the suit. However, the case was listed as “still pending” as of June 1.
If Kathryn hired KL Creative in November 2019, that means she was working on her image ahead of Season 7. (Production on the new season began in February, but was halted one month later because of the coronavirus pandemic.) Interestingly, Cameran Eubanks, Chelsea Meissner and Naomie Olindo all quit the show ahead of filming because of rumors Kathryn supposedly started that Cameran’s husband was having an affair.

Between that behind-the-scenes gossip and her recent drama over using a sitting monkey emoji in a heated DM with an African-American radio host, Kathryn may want to consider more than just an image consultant to fix her problems.
