NeNe Leakes Breaks Her Silence on Tax Drama

This is hilarious.

Published August 19, 2016

NeNe Leakes will be the first to let you know that she is "very rich" but the reality star was recently accused by the IRS of refusing to pay more than $800,000 in back taxes from 2014. Now, for the first time since the news hit the web, NeNe's breaking her silence in a way only she can.

The reality star took to Instagram to poke fun at the situation, asking her followers to borrow $20. Take a look:

According to the Daily Mail, though, if NeNe doesn't pay up, the IRS has the liberty to seize her assets and property in order to settle the debt. 

They would have a lot to seize seeing as 2014 was a huge year for the Real Housewives of Atlanta breakout star. In addition to her appearance on the show, she competed on Dancing With the Stars and launched her own clothing line, the NeNe Leakes Collection, on the Home Shopping Network.
