Kim Zolciak’s Former Publicist Reveals Why He Took Her to Court

It's no secret that Kim Zolciak, formerly of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, has her share of haters. Now, one of her longtime media enemies, her prior publicist Jonathan Jaxson, has come forward via his self-published book, Jonathan Jaxson: Don't You Know Who I Am Yet, to give what he says is his honest account of his experience working with Kim. Warning: This isn't all pretty.

When Jonathan first encountered Kim, he knew he had hit reality gold. "She was definitely rough around the edges, a chain smoker who enjoys drinking, spending money, cussing like a sailor, and causing drama. She’s the perfect reality star and she knew it," Jonathan remembered.

But the working relationship quickly became a challenge when Kim wasn't willing to play by Jonathan's rules. "She was a difficult client because it’s best when someone will listen and take my advice," he explained.

We're not surprised to hear Kim had a problem with people telling her what to do, but Jonathan goes on to attack Kim's character.

"She would often try to accuse me of things that were not true in order to place blame somewhere else, on someone, anyone but herself," he said.

Worse than that, he claims that Kim didn't come through with the cha-ching, which has got to hurt the mama of four with all of the drama surrounding "Tardy for the Party" and Kandi Burruss.

"After all of the hands-on work and countless hours, I was shocked when I had to ask for my fee…and she refused. She kept putting me off or telling me she would take care of it and it never came," Jonathan asserted, noting that he eventually had to take Kim to Small Claims Court and win before she would pay up..

In the end, he did offer some kind words for his former employer, writing, "I’m truly happy for the success she has achieved and hope she continues to work hard and stay focused."
