RHOA’s Sheree Whitfiled has been enjoying her newfound celebrity status, traveling, living in the spotlight and enjoying frequent shopping excursions– but what she hasn’t been doing is PAYING her BILLS!!?!?? This housewife is reportedly in exorbitant debt with her divorce lawyers, and this is the second lawsuit filed against her for failure to pay her divorce fees.
According to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Weinstock & Scavo filed a civil lawsuit against Whitfield in the Fulton County Superior Court on June 10th, for unpaid fees totaling $96, 190.18. This is the second firm of attorneys that Whitfield has worked with over the course of the divorce, since 2007. Prior to ’07, Whitfield worked with attorneys from Levine & Smith, who also filed a lawsuit for outstanding fees of more than $87,000 in early 2009.
The details of the lawsuit are as follows:
The impetus for this lawsuit came after Bob Whitfield sold property in Atlanta last October. He wrote in court documents that he needed to sell the property to finish paying off his original $775,000 divorce settlement agreement with Whitfield he signed in 2005.
Weinstock & Scavo recorded a lien on March 19, 2009 in favor of the firm for unpaid attorneys’ fees and expenses owed by Sheree. The law firm claimed Bob Whitfield and the people buying his property were aware of the unpaid attorney’s lien but chose to ignore it.
In citing breach of contract, the law firm said “Ms. Whitfield has acted in bad faith, has been stubbornly litigious and has caused W&S unnecessary trouble and expense entitling W&S to an award of attorneys’ fees and costs of litigation in connection with this case.”
Sheree needs to chill out on the Birkin bag shopping sprees for realz!
