Kenya Moore is not going down without a fight amid her messy divorce from Marc Daly as the Real Housewives of Atlanta star wins one battle regarding their daughter, Brooklyn, 2, while Marc questions an official appointed to their case due to the person’s ties to the show. Also, Kenya’s costar Porsha Williams is dragged into the legal battle.
According to a new report, Marc name-dropped Kenya’s longtime frenemy, Porsha, in one of his filings after Kenya sued him for primary custody of Brooklyn earlier this year. Marc reportedly believed that the guardian ad litem appointed to investigate the case, Rachel St. Fleur, had a major conflict of interest for multiple reasons.
First, Marc argued the official was “very open and candid about the fact that she knew of the Parties and that she had seen episodes of the Real Housewives of Atlanta” according to Radar Online. In addition to watching the show, Marc claimed Rachel had attended his Black Man Lab charity event, where she actually witnessed his verbal altercation with Kenya.
“The altercation that occurred at the event was a major event in the parties’ relationship,” the docs noted. “In fact, within days of the event the couple publicly announced they were separating.”
Marc also pointed out the guardian ad litem’s connection to Porsha as the two reportedly attended high school together. Though he admitted he doesn’t know how much contact Rachel has had with Porsha, he claimed, “[Rachel’s] relationship and connection to someone on the show with the Petitioner causes some concern.”
The motion apparently never went anywhere since the two later agreed to a consent order in June. For now, the former couple has agreed that Brooklyn is to remain living with Kenya as Marc hasn’t objected to that arrangement. But, he has requested joint custody so he can help make important decisions regarding their daughter. However, Kenya is asking the judge to deny this request as well because she wants sole custody. She’s also asking the judge to order Marc to pay child support along with her legal fees.
Unfortunately for the former Miss USA, Marc has requested that Kenya pay his legal fees, but the judge has yet to rule either way.
Meanwhile, Kenya has seemingly won one battle with the restaurant owner according to another report from Radar Online. The outlet states that despite Marc’s attempts to stop Brooklyn from filming with Kenya on RHOA, a judge ruled back in June that the two-year-old can appear on the series.
This ruling was made in a custody and support case Kenya filed prior to her divorce filing. The judge noted that the show was a “particular point of contention” for the pair, but he said there was no evidence that Kenya would place their daughter in “any environment that might not be in the minor child’s best interest, or may in any way be considered dangerous or inappropriate.”
Furthermore, the judge believed that if Brooklyn was unable to film, it could negatively affect Kenya’s career.
“The evidence has further shown that if Petitioner is not able to involve the minor child, that it could negatively impact her ability to make money, or even be employed,” the judge stated in his ruling.
Kenya is expected to notify Marc each and every time Brooklyn is on camera, and the child can only be involved in “age-appropriate” scenes.
