Self proclaimed “Rich Bitch” Nene Leakes reportedly owes the IRS more than $1 million in taxes, and according to RadarOnline, she also once filed for bankruptcy. According to U.S. Bankruptcy Court documents the former stripper filed for chapter 13 bankruptcy back in March 1996.

Leakes was a struggling single mom back then, when she went by Linnethia Johnson. She owed nearly $30,000 to various creditors, including $27,000 on a car loan and $2,000 on student debt. She now owns a $2 million mansion in Atlanta, but Leakes listed her value in real property as $0 in the filing. The case was dismissed on April 4, 1996.

One year later, she married real estate investor Gregg Leakes in 1997. The couple split in 2010, only to remarry two years later. The highs and lows of their relationship has been chronicled on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

  1. I agree it’s awful all the wigs, weaves, braids and some more because the are too d… sorry and lazy to do their hair. I tell my husband all the time, back in the day black women took care of their hair they hardly ever wore makeup if at all. The younger generations of black women try to act like celebrities. Spending money on themselves ignoring their kids and just can barely pay the rent. It’s sad…

    • What is with white women and weave (because Larry, you do know that THEY wear weaves, too?), lip fillers, fake arses? Do they want to look black? WOW!

  2. I don’t feel sorry for her wanna be ugly arrogant a.. because she was always saying how rich she was, trying to intimidate Wendy and some more. You fat nasty looking wanna be, take off that wig.. and stop being a fake a..

    Just make two large payments of $500K to the IRS, and call it a day…OR better, the IRS is willing to work with you…make 4 $25K payments to the IRS within a year and you are good! I am not understanding how so many stars get caught up owing the IRS so much money…PAY THE PEOPLE! I would much rather pay then having my name splatter all over the media outlets regarding my personal business. SMH!! Since she is SO RICH!!
