Everyone’s favorite RHOA housewife, Nene Leakes was just slapped with a lawsuit from Tiffany Cook of Dream Design Weddings & Events! My inside source has revealed that Nene Leakes allegedly left Tiffany hanging high and dry. Allegedly Nene was in breach of contract with Tiffany (she is the previous wedding planner). The court docs states Nene paid the retainer fee to Tiffany, the previous wedding planner. Oh yeah, Tiffany was mentioned in the Bravo’s original press release too. So there is evidence of an existing contract. I don’t know what to think but since Judge Mathis married Nene, he should represent her too. See Nene’s old Hollywood Wedding (See the $1.8 million wedding photos)cost major bucks and the former wedding planner wants her coins! In my Nene Leakes’ voice, “You never can win when you’re dirty honey.” Just read the case after the heartbeat to figure out who is dirty.
What people don’t realize is that in Tiffany’s suit, filed in Georgia, she claims Nene promised to pay her 15% of the entire wedding budget plus fees design and execution of the wedding in addition to 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).
Tiffany Cook claims NeNe did pay the initial down payment ($18,750) … but she hasn’t seen a coin since and she is suing for the remaining $1,142,900 balance … PLUS damages. Oh lawd…my neck and my back…
See Tiffany Cook isn’t a random fly by night wedding planner either. Tiffany’s biography stated that she has planned weddings for the last 20 years! Tiffany’s celebrity clients include Porsha and Kordell Stewart, Ameriie & fiance Len Nicholson, other NFL players and larger corporations (JasmineBrand).
This is the complaint filed against True Entertainment and Nene Leakes. Please contact Greene Legal Group for more information about this case and it’s development at Rgreene@greenelegalgroup.com 4045744309.

By the way:
In Georgia, the elements of a publication of private facts claim are: (1) the disclosure of private facts must be a public disclosure; (2) the facts disclosed to the public must be private, secluded or secret facts and not public ones; and (3) the matter made public must be offensive and objectionable to a reasonable man of ordinary sensibilities under the circumstances.
Georgia law does not impose liability for publication of information that is of legitimate public concern or newsworthy. Wilson v. Thurman, 445 S.E.2d 811, 813 (Ga. Ct. App. 1994). Georgia courts have repeatedly affirmed that reporting about issues concerning crime and criminal investigations are matters of public interest and cannot support a claim of invasion of privacy.
Relying on Public Records
In Georgia, you generally cannot be held liable for publishing truthful information obtained from government records open to public inspection. Courts have applied this protection to information obtained from court records and statements made before a public body, but it could apply to other government records as well, both because of a potential constitutional privilege and because the information is already exposed to the public eye.
