to Pay Her Attorneys
According to TMZ, the law firm Weinstock & Scavo sued Whitfield back in 2010 after she accrued $165,000 in fees while they repped her during her bitter divorce with Bob Whitfield.
Court documents claim that Whitfield eventually paid W&S $69,000 of her bill but failed to pay them the remaining $96,000 because she claimed they overcharged her.
However, a judge recently sided with W&S and Whitfield was ordered to pay the law firm the outstanding balance, plus interest, which amounts to $119,674.
Sheree was released from her contract with the RHOA series earlier this year because she was reportedly making exorbitant money demands. In October, the braggadocious actress finally won her child support case against her ex after a three-year court battle to gain the monies he allegedly withheld after the two separated.
A judge awarded Sheree a reported $75,000 in back child support payments to be paid by Bob before Nov. 11, even though he owed over $81,000. In addition to the win against her husband, Sheree was also granted a $1,000 a month payment over the next year; Bob’s mandatory monthly child support payments of $2,142 would resume thereafter.
Guess that five-figure check she received from Bob should come in handy right about now.
