The streets is talking and this time is Nene Leakes that everyone is chatting about. Remember, that over the top spectacular wedding Nene had a few months ago?
We’ll according to the streets, Nene has not paid the remaining balance of her bill to the wedding planner. In Nene’s defense, she say’s she has paid her bill.
The woman going after Leakes is Tiffany Cook — who claims NeNe hired Dream Design Weddings to coordinate the party for her marriage to Gregg Leakes on June 22, 2013 … a wedding that will featured on a Bravo TV special in September.
In her suit, filed in Georgia, Cook claims Leakes promised to pay her 15% of the entire wedding budget PLUS fees design and execution of the wedding PLUS travel expenses to the event.
In total, Cook claims NeNe’s budget for the wedding was $1.8 MILLION!!!!!!!!! And Cook claims she was due $270k (the 15%) PLUS another $889,900 (design fees) PLUS $1,750 (4 coach tickets from Florida to Georgia). Cook claims NeNe did fork over the initial down payment ($18,750) … but she hasn’t seen a penny since — and is suing for the remaining $1,142,900 balance … PLUS damages.
A rep for NeNe tells TMZ … Cook was NOT the wedding planner, it was a man named Tony Conway, who made Nene’s wedding spectacular. The rep adds, “This lawsuit has no merit and it appears to be a baseless attempt to grab 15 min of fame.” – TMZ
Here’s what Nene had to say via twitter:
I’m on Nene’s side. I just don’t see her not paying a bill, she’s usually about her ish! However, if ole girl has a receipt for that $18,750 she allegedly received from Nene than show me! I just don’t buy it……..
