RHOA Drama is Popping off between Kandi and Kim. Remember the song was recorded on April 30 and May 1 of 2009. Burruss also sued TuneCore, which distributes music to online retailers. Well Kandi said enough was enough and has now sued Kim over use of the song, alleging copyright infringement. Kandi claims Kim infringed upon her copyright by unlawfully licensing, distributing and selling the song, which she wrote and Kim “sang” on.
In the lawsuit filed Tuesday in the United States District Court of the Northern District of Georgia, Burruss and co-writer Rodney Richards are seeking “damages for copyright infringement due to Defendants’ unauthorized and unlawful licensing, distribution and sale of Plaintiffs’ creative works, namely a sound recording embodying a performance of a musical composition entitled ‘Tardy for the Party. ‘”
The song, in which Zolciak’s daughter Brielle gets songwriting credit, sold 102,000 copies, the lawsuit said.
In a statement , Zolciak says in response to the legal action:
“This is nothing short of a publicity stunt, I find this lawsuit funny yet sad. Coming after me now and this song is 4 years old? I have in fact overpaid Kandi and have documents to prove it and my legal team will handle this accordingly.”
Kandi is being represented by none other than Phaedra Parks, her
housewife co-star. Let’s hope Phaedra
is able to win this case remember Sheree Whitfield? I cant wait to see how all this play out with Kim lying self. Atlanta
