Kandi Burruss Explains Why She Decided To Sue Kim Zolciak!

Kandi Burruss

Real Housewives of Atlanta Star Kandi Burruss is speaking out about her decision to pursue legal action against Kim Zolciak for the song she produced for Kim, ‘Don’t Be Tardy For The Party.’ Kandi, along with co-writer Rodney Richards (Don Vito), are seeking “damages for copyright infringement due to Defendants’ unauthorized and unlawful licensing, distribution and sale of Plaintiffs’ creative works,” the suit states.

Kandi spoke with Hip Hollywood and revealed that she had to file a lawsuit against Kim because TuneCore said it would be the only way Kandi could get them to take the song down from iTunes. “It’s time for the whole ordeal to be over,” Kandi says. “I asked TuneCore to take the song down in December 2012. They did. Kim sent an affidavitto put it back up, which they did. TuneCore then informed me that in order for the song to be taken down permanently I would need to file suit to have it removed.”

Kandi explains that the lawsuit was a last resort. ”I never wanted to go that route but after being told that it is the only way to get the song removed, I had no other choice….This is not a publicity stunt. I no longer wish for anyone to benefit from the work that Don Vito and I created.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
