Sheree Whitfield of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” is back in legal hot water. Last year, her divorce lawyers sued her for non-payment. And it looks like she still hasn’t paid her hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt. While Sheree was out “buying” Aston Martins and Birkin bags, Weinstock & Scavo law firm filed a civil lawsuit in Fulton County Superior Court for $96,190.18 in fees related to her divorce.
On June 10th, Sheree’s second set of divorce lawyers sued her for the almost $100K she owes them. Her ex-husband Bob Whitfield is named in the suit as well:
The impetus for this lawsuit came after Bob Whitfield sold property in Atlanta last October. He wrote in court documents that he needed to sell the property to finish paying off his original $775,000 divorce settlement agreement with Whitfield he signed in 2005.
Weinstock & Scavo recorded a lien on March 19, 2009 in favor of the firm for unpaid attorneys’ fees and expenses owed by Sheree. The law firm claimed Bob Whitfield and the people buying his property were aware of the unpaid attorney’s lien but chose to ignore it.
In citing breach of contract, the law firm said “Ms. Whitfield has acted in bad faith, has been stubbornly litigious and has caused W&S unnecessary trouble and expense entitling W&S to an award of attorneys’ fees and costs of litigation in connection with this case.”
