It all happens? Kim Zolciak-Biermann has officially removed Kroy Biermann’s last name from her social media following their divorce.
The former Bravo star, 45, shared an Instagram post on Thursday, June 8 that hinted at a possible return to the Real Housewives of Atlanta. “See you soon 🎥 @bravotv #RHOA,” wrote Zolciak-Biermann, who starred on the reality series from 2008-2012, alongside a photo of her with Lisa Wu, Shereé Whitfield and DeShawn Snow.
However, attentive followers quickly drew attention to the other new addition to Zolciak-Biermann’s online platform. The reality star removed “Biermann” from her Instagram name – but it is still included on her Twitter.
The former couple made headlines in May when Us Weekly confirmed that Zolciak-Biermann and Biermann, 37, had both filed papers to end their marriage after more than a decade together. Court documents we received said the couple had given April 30 as their separation date.
For his part, the former NFL player noted in his court filing that he is seeking “temporary and permanent sole legal and sole custody” of his four children with the reality star: sons Kroy “KJ” Jr., 11, and Kash, 10, and twins Kaia and Kane, 9. He also applied for ownership of their home as he continues to look after the children.
Biermann, who adopted the Florida native’s daughters Brielle, 26, and Ariana, 21, from previous relationships, later raised eyebrows as he seemingly cast shade at his estranged wife in his Instagram bio. “My ring meant something to me,” he added to his profile, which previously read “husband.” Father of six perfect munchkins. Athlete. You can google me and see that I wasn’t late for this party.”
The couple’s messy breakup continued to gain public visibility when, based on court documents we received, Biermann requested late last month that Zolciak-Biermann undergo a psychological evaluation. His filing comes days after the “Tardy for the Party” singer submitted her own application, urging him to undergo a drug test and claiming she was concerned for the safety of her children in his care.
Before their split, Zolciak-Biermann explained why she didn’t want reality TV to interfere with her personal life. “[Divorce is] “It’s not an option for me,” she told Fox News in October 2017. “I would never allow a show to affect my marriage in any way.” My marriage definitely comes first.”
The former TV personality claimed at the time that other housewives were getting divorced due to the “hype of TV and publicity” that comes with being in the spotlight. She added that getting a divorce was “easier” than working on a relationship.
Amid the drama, Biermann hinted that Zolciak-Biermann was interested in returning to reality TV. “Don’t be so obvious,” the former athlete captioned a May 26 Instagram post, which shows a cartoon of a blonde woman in front of a camera.
