Reality television star Kim Zolciak, 44, has officially filed for divorce from her husband, former NFL player Kroy Biermann, 37, after 11 years of marriage.

Zolciak, who gained fame on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, listed April 30 as the date of separation from Biermann, according to TMZ. The couple shares four children: Kroy Jagger (KJ), 11, Kash, 10, and twins Kaia and Kane, 9. Biermann also legally adopted Zolciak’s daughters, Brielle, 26, and Ariana, 21, from her previous relationship with ex-husband Daniel Toce.

In her divorce filing, Zolciak cited “irretrievably broken” as the reason for ending the marriage, with no possibility of reconciliation. She is seeking joint legal custody and primary physical custody of their four children, as well as spousal support. Additionally, Zolciak requested to have her maiden name restored legally.

The couple first met in 2010 at a Dancing With Atlanta Stars charity event and married on November 11, 2011. Their financial troubles came to light when TMZ reported they owed $1.1 million in unpaid taxes, penalties, and interest to the IRS, with unpaid amounts from 2013, 2017, and 2018. They also reportedly owe the state of Georgia $15,000 in unpaid taxes for 2018.

In February, their Georgia home was reported to be in foreclosure. Despite this, Zolciak took to social media to showcase her lavish living room, complete with a massive chandelier. She referred to the foreclosure as a “misunderstanding” and claimed it was being sorted out.

The couple originally purchased the home for $880,000 in 2012, and its current estimated value is between $2.5 and $2.6 million. The luxurious estate has been featured on both the Real Housewives and Zolciak’s own reality show, Don’t Be Tardy, which aired for eight seasons.

Truist Bank has been tasked with handling the foreclosure, which began in August when the couple defaulted on their $1.65 million mortgage. The five-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bathroom mansion is located near the 18th hole of the Manor Golf and Country Club in Atlanta. The 6,900 square-foot property features a swimming pool, hot tub, waterfall spa, basketball court, and built-in elevator.

In November of last year, Zolciak denied claims that their home had been auctioned off for $257,000, insisting they still owned it and had no plans to sell. She stated that the actual worth of the Alpharetta, Georgia home is $2.5 million. The couple managed to pay off their outstanding debts, averting the foreclosure threat that was delivered two years after the home’s purchase in 2012.
