NeNe Leakes sued by wedding planner Tiffany Cook for $2.5 million
After NeNe Leakes explosive show-down with her ex-wedding planner Tiffany Cook went down on episode 4 of her hit reality show I Dream Of NeNe this news here makes much more sense and now has a lot more relevance..
A couple of months ago fans of Leakes were shocked when news of her being sued by her wedding planner hit the media creating a firestorm of questions directed at Leakes about her nuptials and pending television show since it still had not aired yet at the time, NeNe had to remain kind of tight-lipped about the whole scenario with her wedding planner since her show had not aired yet and I hear that Bravo doesn’t play around about those confidentiality contracts, but now that the episode has aired showing how Cook and Leakes fall-out took place it has a lot of viewers giving Cook and her lawsuit the side-eye..
More on this story after the jump…
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes is being sued by her “celebrity wedding planner” — who claims NeNe racked up a MILLION DOLLAR bill for her big day … and never paid, TMZ has learned. The woman going after Leakes is Tiffany Cook — who claims NeNe hired Dream Design Weddings to coordinate the party for her marriage to Gregg Leakes on June 22, 2013 … a wedding that will featured on a Bravo TV special in September. In her suit, filed in Georgia, Cook claims Leakes promised to pay her 15% of the entire wedding budget PLUS fees design and execution of the wedding PLUS travel expenses to the event. In total, Cook claims NeNe’s budget for the wedding was $1.8 MILLION and Cook claims she was due $270k (the 15%) PLUS another $889,900 (design fees) PLUS $1,750 (4 coach tickets from Florida to Georgia).
Cook claims NeNe did fork over the initial down payment ($18,750) … but she hasn’t seen a penny since — and is suing for the remaining $1,142,900 balance … PLUS damages. In total, Cook — who also put together Kordell Stewart’s wedding to Porsha — wants more than $2.5 MILLION for her troubles. A rep for NeNe tells TMZ … Cook was NOT the wedding planner, it was a man named Tony Conway, who made Nene’s wedding spectacular. (TMZ)
