I guess we all owe Kenya an apology — if a recent statement released to the Huffington Post turns out to be true. Over the past few weeks we’ve been reporting on Kenya’s housing troubles as her landlord has been making moves to get the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reality star evicted on the grounds that she failed to make her full rent payment for May and doesn’t keep up the property. All Kenya had to say about the situation was that it was “absolutely absurd,” claiming she not only paid May rent, but June as well and that her lease is up in a few weeks anyway. But a source who spoke with HuffPo just revealed how absurd this lawsuit is, saying:
The eviction lawsuit has nothing to do with Kenya at all. Kenya has found herself renting from a divorced couple who are in the middle of a bitter battle over support payments. Basically, the wife/landlord wants Kenya to move out of the house immediately because, as you can see from the attached document, she has a court date coming up with her ex-husband where she will be asking for additional support for their daughter and other financial relief.
However, the husband is contending that his ex is making a lot of money by having Kenya as a tenant and he does not want to pay her any additional support. The wife wants Kenya out before her court date so she can say she is no longer receiving the big rent checks.
Now ain’t that some ish?
Backing up what Kenya told Wendy Williams when she called into her show a week ago, the source also confirmed that Kenya never received notice of last week’s court date when she was officially evicted, so they expect that decision to be overturned. Kenya’s attorney, Marcia Fuller, attended a hearing on June 20 to set a new court date for some time in early July, so it looks like she might not be going anyway after all. At least not by force.

What do you think about this source’s info on Kenya’s landlord? Do you believe that could be the real reason for the eviction?
