Tardy For The Lawsuit: Wondering Why Kandi Burruss Is Suing Kim Over “Tardy For The Party” Four Years Later? She Breaks It Down
If you were like Kim Zolciak, wondering why after four years of ratchetry with “Tardy For The Party,” Kandi Burruss was just now deciding to sue her former friend for money she allegedly owed for the song, Burruss has decided to set the record straight.
Zolciak took to the website TooFab to express her disappointment with the lawsuit and called it an outright publicity stunt:
“This is nothing short of a publicity stunt, I find this lawsuit funny yet sad. Coming after me now and this song is 4 years old? I have in fact overpaid Kandi and have documents to prove it and my legal team will handle this accordingly.”
Somebody is feeling very confident about all this isn’t she? Well, Burruss decided to respond, reaching out to HipHopHollywood to clear the air. It’s about business: Zolciak owes her money, she chose not to pay it, and now she will one way or the other.
“It’s time for the whole ordeal to be over. I asked TuneCore to take the song down in December 2012. They did. Kim sent an affidavit to put it back up, which they did. TuneCore then informed me that in order for the song to be taken down permanently I would need to file suit to have it removed. I never wanted to go that route but after being told that it is the only way to get the song removed, I had no other choice….This is not a publicity stunt. I no longer wish for anyone to benefit from the work that Don Vito and I created.”
Both Burruss and co-writer Rodney Richards are seeking damages for copyright infringement and since we know Burruss is all about her paper, she’s going to pursue that money like there’s no tomorrow, especially since she and Zolciak are no longer the good friends they once appeared to be. But whether or not this lawsuit is message to Zokciak or payback to Zolciak being one of the shadiest friends ever on RHOA, if there’s proof that Burruss and Richards never got paid, it’s money they deserve and money they should get.
