Kim Zolciak won the case in which she was sued by her former "Real Housewives of Atlanta" co-star, Kandi Burress. On Oct. 12, Us Weekly reported that a judge ruled in Zolciak's favor, agreeing that songwriter Burress didn't have any rights to Kim's song, "Tardy for the Party." The song, which Burress helped Zolciak with, hit the top 20 on iTunes and Burress didn't see a dime from its success.
"A judge has officially ruled in Zolciak's favor as she responded with her own legal documents, claiming Burress, 37, used the lawsuit as a publicity stunt to promote her now-canceled show 'The Kandi Factory,'" US Weekly reported.
The Kim Zolciak case was a little involved but from the beginning Kim seemed to know that she didn't do anything wrong. In fact, Burress even admitted that it was her own fault that she didn't receive any sort of royalties because there wasn't any paperwork filled out.
"I hardly got anything from Tardy for the Party. That is the truth. I am not mad about it. I really blame myself because I didn't handle my business correctly," Burress said in 2010. Years later she filed a lawsuit trying to win some sort of money -- but that didn't happen. Kim's rebuttal case was much stronger and since there weren't any legal documents to support Burress' case, she lost.
Now that the Kim Zolciak case is over she can focus on more important things -- like giving birth to twins!
