NeNe Leakes

Sued By Wedding Planner

You Weren't the Only One Stiffed On Wedding Day

7/26/2013 4:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0726-nene-leaks-tmz"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes is being sued by her "celebrity wedding planner" -- who claims NeNe racked up a MILLION DOLLAR bill for her big day ... and never paid, TMZ has learned.

The woman going after Leakes is Tiffany Cook -- who claims NeNe hired Dream Design Weddings to coordinate the party for her marriage to Gregg Leakes on June 22, 2013 ... a wedding that will featured on a Bravo TV special in September.

In her suit, filed in Georgia, Cook claims Leakes promised to pay her 15% of the entire wedding budget PLUS fees design and execution of the wedding PLUS 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).

Cook claims NeNe did fork over the initial down payment ($18,750) ... but she hasn't seen a penny since -- and is suing for the remaining $1,142,900 balance ... PLUS damages.

In total, Cook -- who also put together Kordell Stewart's wedding to Porsha -- wants more than $2.5 MILLION for her troubles.

How's THAT for a wedding gift???

A rep for NeNe tells TMZ ... Cook was NOT the wedding planner, it was a man named Tony Conway, who made Nene's wedding spectacular.

The rep adds, "This lawsuit has no merit and it appears to be a baseless attempt to grab 15 min of fame."

Why is it us middle class people have to pay up front for everything? But the rich can do a million dollar wedding with nothing down? Nene Leakes is not know for paying her bills. She just filed bankruptcy not too long ago!

What is it with the Atlanta housewives being sued, is that part of being on the show? Kandi is suing Kim, Kenya is suing anybody, Phaedra is suing an author, Sherays husband I think she sued him or maybe the both sued each other enough already!!

Yeah this is the same crazy lowlife that proclaimed "I'm rich, bitch!" on national television. Somebody needs to explain to her what rich really is.
