Bad News for NeNe 'Very Rich' Leakes

The reality star has a serious problem on her hands.

Published August 18, 2016

NeNe Leakes loves to brag about her cash, but she might have gone too far this time. The reality star is now on the radar of the IRS, and they're coming after her for nearly a million bucks.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, whose real name is Linnethia Monique Leakes, was hit with a Federal Tax Lien on July 22 in a Georgia court. The government says she owes $830,000 in back taxes, and if she doesn't pay, her assets will be frozen.

According to the IRS documents, the entire sum is due from 2014, meaning Leakes had a very lucrative year, indeed. That was the year she starred on Dancing With the Stars and launched her NeNe Leakes Collection on HSN. She had also made her Broadway debut in Cinderella.

Leakes is gonna have to dig deep to get herself out of this one. Maybe this means she will come back to RHOA, after all? A little extra cash couldn't hurt right about now.
