Don't Be Tardy's Kim Zolciak Ordered To Pay $215,000 After Lawsuit By American Express Over Unpaid Credit Card Debt

 Kim Zolciak has a pending $215,000 judgment against her.

Six months after she was sued by American Express National Bank for failing to pay off her $215,925.90 balance, the Don’t Be Tardy star is being forced to submit payment to the credit card company.

“Defendant [Zolciak] agreed to pay and was obligated to pay the Plaintiff for all extended credit on Defendant’s account,” the complaint against her read, via a May 14 report from Radar Online. “Pursuant to the parties’ agreement, Plaintiff transmitted to Defendants a monthly billing statement for the account, and Defendant was obligated to pay the minimum payment due as set forth on that statement on a monthly basis.”

Kim was also accused of failing to pay, and continuing to fail to pay, the amount due to American Express before being served court documents at her Georgia home in February. Then, three months later, the company filed a Request for Default Judgment with the Fulton County Superior Court.

“The Defendant, Kimberleigh Zolciak, has been properly served with process in this action and has failed to file an answer or other defensive pleadings within the time allowed by law,” their filing read. “Plaintiff respectfully requests a judgment be entered against the Defendant.”

According to the report, the court ordered Kim to pay American Express $215,822.68 earlier this month after she neglected to file a response in regard to the default judgment request and received a credit adjustment in the amount of $103.22.

In addition to her Don’t Be Tardy salary, Kim also has a steady income from her recently launched makeup line, KAB Cosmetics, which she co-owns with her daughters, Brielle Biermann, and Ariana Biermann.

Following the lawsuit, Kim tried to sell some of her personal designer items via a vintage store.
