Not only does Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak refute the lawsuit filed against her by castmate Kandi Burruss, but the Tardy For The Party singer claims she’s already paid her more than $23,000 in royalties!
“The lawsuit has absolutely no merit. Kim’s attorney and account have double and triple checked everything that she’s done,” Kim’s rep Mike Paul told RadarOnline.com in an interview.
“Kandi’s work in dealing with the entire business side of the song was sloppy and messy. You can’t then say after the fact that you should have done this and you should have done that. The timing is extremely suspicious for a number of reasons. The song is almost four years old, why now?”
As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported last week, Kandi filed a lawsuit against Kim alleging copyright infringement on her hit song Tardy For The Party — because Kandi claims she wrote it!
“The facts are extremely important so that the story is clear. It was a song that was created originally by Kim and her daughter four years ago, during season one, before Kandi even joined the cast,” Mike Paul said.
“Then a year and a half later in season two they decided to take that song and change it. It wasn’t some new song written from scratch.”
