Kroy Biermann Requests Mental Evaluation for Kim Zolciak Amid Allegations of Online Gambling
Former Atlanta Falcons star Kroy Biermann is escalating the battle with his estranged wife, Kim Zolciak, as their divorce takes a contentious turn.
In recent legal documents, Biermann urges the court to order a mental evaluation for Zolciak-Biermann, alleging that her behavior has become increasingly concerning in the months leading up to their separation.
According to Biermann, Zolciak-Biermann has confessed to spending excessive time and money on online gambling and other games of chance. He claims that her “compulsion” has wreaked havoc on their finances and left her unable to fulfill her parental responsibilities to their four minor children.
Worried about their safety and well-being, Biermann believes a psychological examination is necessary to assess whether Zolciak-Biermann may grapple with underlying mental health issues like depression, anxiety, narcissistic personality disorder, bipolar disorder, or ADHD.
This development follows reports from TMZ, which revealed that the couple is facing a substantial debt of over USD 1 million owed to the IRS.

Additionally, as the divorce proceedings intensified, Zolciak-Biermann had recently requested that Biermann undergo a drug test, expressing concerns about the children’s welfare while in his care.
Both parties continue to reside with their children in their Georgia estate, which had previously faced foreclosure earlier this year, indicating the high tension in their living situation.
To gain exclusive control over the marital residence, Biermann’s divorce filing also seeks temporary and permanent sole legal and physical custody of their minor children.
The financial strains, including their hefty tax debt and previous foreclosure, have put additional pressure on the fragile relationship.
However, the battle for custody and financial stability takes center stage as the divorce proceedings become increasingly acrimonious.

In addition, the future custody arrangements and financial settlements hang in the balance, leaving both parties uncertain and potentially further escalating the hostilities between them.
