Sheree Whitfield Aston Marton siezed!

4 Nov

According to TMZ.com, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield had her Aston Martin seized from her due to non-payment to her divorce lawyers.  Sheree apparently owes her legal team over $110,000.  Wow!   

TMZ reports:

The people behind the seizure are Whitfield’s former divorce lawyer, who sued the reality star — and won — after she stiffed them out of more than $110,000 in legal fees.

A rep for the lawyer tells TMZ they still haven’t received the money — so this weekend, they had the local sheriff’s department snatch the car up as payment.

So now Sheree’s short one husband … AND one Aston Martin.

Sheree tells TMZ she thinks the judgment against her is unfair — but adds, “It’s okay, it’s a car, I’ll get another one.”

 

This should not be a shocker to Sheree Access Atlanta reports:

She first hired Levine & Smith as her divorce attorney in 2006 against her now former husband and NFL player Bob Whitfield.

In early 2009, Steve Montalto of Levine & Smith sued Sheree, saying she owed him more than $87,000 in unpaid fees related to her divorce. That situation has not been resolved yet, based on recent court filings…Montalto said she has “ignored and stonewalled any effort to respond to post-judgment discovery about her assets and income,” he said.

He has asked a judge to force her to respond and to threaten her with incarceration. “She thinks she’s above the law,” Montalto said. He also has liens against Bob, her ex husband, which he has ignored.

Her next divorce attorney, Weinstock & Scavo, began working with her in 2007.

On June 10, the firm filed a civil lawsuit in Fulton County Superior Court for $96,190.18 in fees related to her divorce. (Interest, the lawsuit said, amounted to $18,709.07 of that total.)

The impetus for this lawsuit came after Bob Whitfield sold property in Atlanta last October. He wrote in court documents that he needed to sell the property to finish paying off his original $775,000 divorce settlement agreement with Whitfield he signed in 2005.

Weinstock & Scavo recorded a lien on March 19, 2009 in favor of the firm for unpaid attorneys’ fees and expenses owed by Sheree. The law firm claimed Bob Whitfield and the people buying his property were aware of the unpaid attorney’s lien but chose to ignore it.

In citing breach of contract, the law firm said “Ms. Whitfield has acted in bad faith, has been stubbornly litigious and has caused W&S unnecessary trouble and expense entitling W&S to an award of attorneys’ fees and costs of litigation in connection with this case.”

Dayum!!!!

We all know Sheree loves all things fly and wants $$$$ more than she wants love based on her rants this past Monday night.  Well, what can I say Sheree, your lawyers helped you snag up some really good change in your divorce settlement so there’s no reason why you can’t pay them.   This is just embarrassing! SMDH!!!
