Kim Zolciak Releases Official Statement on 'Tardy for the Party' Lawsuit + 'The Kandi Factory' Winner Says He Never Got His Prize


Kim Zolciak has released an official press statement via her representation in response to being sued by Kandi Burruss for “Tardy for the Party“.

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. We also find the handling of the lawsuit by another cast member on the show, and the timing of Kandi’s attempt to launch her own spinoff reality show, raises serious questions about the true motives behind the filing this lawsuit for alleged record royalties due from a song that was released over three and a half years ago.

The song was created by four people who share in the royalties: Kim, her daughter (who co-wrote the original song in season one of the RHOA show before Kandi joined the show in season two) Kandi and Don Vito.  To date, Kim has written checks to Kandi and Don Vito in excess of $23,000. In fact, we believe that Kim may have overpaid a portion of their share to date based on the actual record sales.

So much drama! You can read the full statement here.

In other news….

Matthew Solomon, the winner of Kandi’s The Kandi Factory is claiming that he never received his grand prize and hasn’t heard from Kandi since filming, despite her show getting picked up for a full season.


We hope it’s all just some misunderstanding. The Kandi Factory premieres April 9th at 10pm on Bravo.
