‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’s’ Sheree Whitfield Owes Over 180K To Divorce Attorneys!!!

- By Bossip Staff

Sheree Whitfield needs to come off some of that divorce settlement and pay her damn bills before a Judge answers her infamous question, ‘Who Gon’ Check Me Boo?’ Pop the hood for details

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member is reportedly indebted to, not one, but TWO separate law firms for over $180,000 in legal fees stemming from her divorce.

Sheree hired Levine & Smith in 2006 to represent her in her divorce from Bob Whitfield. Three years later, in early 2009, Steve Montalto of Levine & Smith sued Sheree, saying she owed him more than $87,000 in unpaid fees related to her divorce. That situation has not been resolved yet, based on recent court filings.

This Monday Montalto said she has “ignored and stonewalled any effort to respond to post-judgment discovery about her assets and income,” he said.

He has asked a judge to force her to respond and to threaten her with incarceration. “She thinks she’s above the law,” Montalto said. He also has liens against Bob, her ex husband, which he has ignored.

Her next divorce attorney, Weinstock & Scavo, began working with her in 2007.

Last week, on June 10, that firm filed a civil lawsuit in Fulton County Superior Court for $96,190.18 in fees related to her divorce. (Interest, the lawsuit said, amounted to $18,709.07 of that total.)

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.”

Sheree apparently doesn’t think the latest lawsuit is that big of a deal because after she was contacted by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution for comment she responded with the following by email:

With all that’s going on in this world, what a shame you feel this is newsworthy….AGAIN!
Darling, these are the SAME disputes you spoke of LAST YEAR!

SMH. How TRIFLING is this heffa? Sounds like somebody needs to stop stuntin in that Aston and pay them bills!

    The judge, your attorney, your checkbook…

  • She said it.

    I owe that much to the IRS. You owe that much to financial aid. The person who will post below me owes maybe less to someone but owes money to some institution.. What’s the point. If you are over 16 and eat, chit and work—you owe somebody. The land of the free is not a debt-free society.

    I’m confused at the point you are trying to make, because I think most of us know the world isn’t free. Of course most of us owe something, but the difference is as Buster Perkins-Power Tap Inventor said trying to be a STTTTUUNNNNNNAAAAA when you’re clearly not…

    @ Pantherbaby:

    I think her legal fees are so high because she said in the 1st season that she wanted and was looking for a seven figure settlement.

    Guess you can’t hire laywers to try and get you that payoff from 1-800-lawyers.

    Also makes me wonder how she had personal a.s.s.istants, personal shoppers, etc.

    Guess another case of living WELL beyond your means…

  • i hear that

    Somebody said why was her fees so high…Well I can only speak for myself but hell I went to court for 2yrs damn near and had one of the best law firms in the DC metro area (fighting over my child) and hell those MOFOS charged 275-300 an hour..My lil poor 20K I had saved up was gone. I won 3 times (because my lifestyle was better and proven), but once someone prolongs the process with appeals it runs out and paperwork time is the cost…
    Then someone here said why she didn’t get her ex hubby to pay for the fees out of court. Well that honestly is a judge’s decision. I tried the same but hell with him paying the same to his lawyers they said no…

    She spent all that money putting on that GOD-AWFUL fashion show with the cow hoof shoes she wore. Now you know she ought to be ashamed.

    That fashion line is abysmal at best.
