Amidst a challenging divorce, Kim Zolciak-Biermann remains committed to creating a joyful holiday season for her children. Despite the ongoing legal complexities, the 45-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta alum took proactive measures to ensure a memorable Christmas for her kids. According to an insider exclusively shared with Us Weekly, Kim engaged in the sale of various items, showcasing her determination to provide her children with meaningful gifts during the festive season. The insider revealed, “Kim sold a bunch of stuff to buy her children gifts this year. She wanted to give them a good Christmas,” highlighting Zolciak-Biermann’s dedication to fostering a positive holiday experience for her family despite the challenging circumstances surrounding her divorce battle.
According to the source, it is highlighted that Zolciak-Biermann and her estranged husband, Kroy Biermann, opted not to collaborate on gift purchases for their children. The former couple, who are parents to sons Kroy “KJ” Jr. (12) and Kash (11), as well as twins Kaia and Kane (10), did not engage in joint gift-giving. Additionally, it is noted that Biermann, 38, has taken on the role of adoptive father to Zolciak-Biermann’s daughters from a previous relationship, Brielle (26), and Ariana (22). This decision to handle gift-giving separately reflects the unique dynamics of their co-parenting arrangement amidst the complexities of their estrangement.
In the beginning of this month, Zolciak-Biermann garnered attention for showcasing and selling some of Biermann’s possessions on Instagram. On December 16, she posted a collection of Louis Vuitton luggage, asserting that her ex-husband had seldom utilized the set. Accompanying videos of the pieces, she captioned the post with, “LOUIS VUITTON MEN’s 6 piece set $12,500, retails over $15,500, carried one time, excellent condition.” In the video, she specified that Biermann had only used the set once, during “the road to one of his football games.” This public sale of items further underscores the intricacies of their separation and how it extends to the disposition of personal belongings.
On that very day, Zolciak-Biermann initiated the posting of various items belonging to both herself and Biermann on an Instagram account named @kimzbcloset. The bio of the account’s profile encourages followers to “Shop all things from Kim’s Closet,” and instructs interested individuals to “Send me a DM with the item you want and we will go from there. I appreciate your support.” A few days later, Biermann expressed gratitude to his fans for their support as his estranged wife continued to sell his possessions. Via his Instagram Story on December 18, he conveyed his appreciation, stating, “I see You ALL!.” This acknowledgment from Biermann indicates a level of awareness and recognition of the public response to the sale of his items by Zolciak-Biermann.
After 11 years of marriage, the ex-Bravo personalities filed for divorce in May. Despite a brief reconciliation in July, Biermann resumed divorce proceedings in August, citing irretrievable brokenness in court documents. The estranged couple, grappling with financial challenges, faced the specter of foreclosure on their Georgia home, as confirmed by Us in February. Initially slated for auction the following month, the auction was eventually canceled, adding another layer of complexity to their ongoing divorce saga.
In October, the reality TV personalities listed their residence for sale at $6 million, double the amount they originally purchased it for in 2012. Simultaneously, the former couple faced legal and financial challenges, as they were directed to pay almost $230,000 to Simmons Bank in response to their failure to address the bank’s lawsuit. The legal action was initiated in July, accusing them of neglecting monthly payments on a home loan. In a separate legal matter, Biermann encountered a lawsuit from J.P. Morgan Chase Bank in November, alleging an outstanding debt of over $13,000 in credit card payments. Adding to the legal complexities, his divorce attorney, Marlys A. Bergstrom, filed a lien this month, asserting unpaid bills totaling $801.01.
