Kenya Moore Financial Woes Come to Light Days After Giving Birth to Baby Daly

Kenya Moore may be celebrating life as a new mom, but she’s certainly not enjoying being hit with a $150,000 tax lien.

The former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star has apparently refused to pay taxes dating back to 2016, court documents obtained by The Blast Thursday, Nov. 8 state.

Moore, who resides in Georgia, was issued a federal tax lien on October 12 from the Internal Revenue Service saying she should fork over $152,678.36 for the year. A lien against Moore’s Atlanta home, known as Moore Manor, has been placed for that amount. If she decides to sell the home, the IRS will get the revenue before she gets any of it.

The news came just four days after the 47-year-old gave birth to her “miracle baby,” Brooklyn Doris Daly.

Now, in addition to learning the ropes of motherhood, Moore will have to contend with her tax woes. The reality star, who isn’t currently appearing on RHOA after being a full-time cast member from seasons 5-10, completed construction on her 7,200 square foot estate in 2016.

During that time, she traded barbs with fellow axed RHOA member Shereé Whitfield over her mansion, dubbed Chateau Shereé.

“It’s cute,” Moore said as she pursued Whitfield’s home in season 9. “It’s like a half the size of mine, maybe.”

“Your s— ain’t even finished and it looks a hot ass mess!” Whitfield charged when she vented to her fellow housewarming party guests. “My s— don’t look cheap and it ain’t cheap!”

Regardless, Moore was proud of the home she built, one she now gets to share with husband Marc Daly and their baby girl.

“You followed me through my entire journey,” she said on Instagram at the time of the home’s completion. “When my house was just sticks and had no electrical, plumbing, heating or cooling, floors, hell, I didn’t even have a front door.”

Moore’s Buckhead area mansion is complete with a quartz bath, touchless toilet and a custom closet to name a few touches.
