NeNe Leakes’ Bankruptcy Revealed


As we have already reported, NeNe Leakes owes $1 million in taxes and according to a new report, the former RHOA star has already filed for bankruptcy.

According to U.S. Bankruptcy Court documents, the reality star and entrepreneur filed for chapter 13 bankruptcy back in March 1996.

The struggling single mom, who then went by Linnethia Johnson, owed nearly $30,000 to various creditors, including $27,000 on a car loan and $2,000 on student debt.

Now, NeNe owns a $2 million mansion in Atlanta, she has listed her value in real property as $0 in the filing, according to RadarOnline.

The case was dismissed on April 4, 1996.

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.

    President Trump has not paid over a billion dollar in taxes, why should she?

  • Real Sandy⛱

    She has listed her value in real property as zero? I don’t get it. How is that possible. Here we go again. This reminds me of someone else.
    I how she can learn to live smaller and pay her debts.

      I meant I HOPE she can learn to live smaller…

  • NeNe & he Husband have been in trouble before..
    I remember the episode,( I don’t remember when but it was the season after they were remarried)
    Anyway, at that time they owed about one hundred thousand dollars..
    Dude, I am self employed and I pay quarterly taxes..
    With all the acting jobs she had, if
    just rented an apartment for herself, she could have paid off h we taxes, or at least pay them down..
    I just don’t understand this type of irresponsibility, especially for a Couple in their Age bracket?
    Seriously, they had/have to pay taxes in Cali.. She wasn’t getting comped on the rental..
    What complete foolishness!
    Instead of paying Taxes( like everyone I know, does)
    Not so Rich be-otch rents a luxury home in a upscale neighborhood of the Hollywood Hills ( in the Celeb section ).
    Then, she BUYS everything they already have in Hotlanta.
    Why did they all move to LA, anyway?
    It is moronic to relocate & furnish a huge rental home, especially when she does not have a contract or a long term contract.
    I wonder if the Leakes stopped paying their mortgage in ATLA?
    Stupid, stupid people living in the delusion of “False Financial Grandiosity”..
    If, they don’t clean up their financial mess?
    NeNe, might be ” Going to Camp”,as well..
    The Housewife Franchise. Should just deserve a wing at a few correctional facilities..

    • Reserve a wing.. I know, lot’s of typos.. Yikes!

        Typos happen. We all have them!
        I wondered why she bought a home in CA too. I thought renting would make more sense, but she must have been rolling in the dough at that point and thought the well would never run dry and she would keep her job. I don’t know for sure, but I imagine she thought so at the time.
        I don’t make excuses for people living above their means. So many are in deep debt, especially credit card debt.
        I am not in the limelight, having to maintain an image for the masses either. I think the Housewives (and ex housewives maybe) always feel they have to show mansions and very expensive cars, designer clothing, etc, even if they have to acquire huge debt to do it. They want to keep that image.
