Kroy Biermann is asking a judge to clear the sale of the $3million mansion he shares with ex-wife Kim Zolciak amid their ongoing financial troubles.
The former NFL player has requested an emergency hearing to get permission to put his Georgia home on the market, according to court documents obtained by TMZ.
Biermann reportedly believes the sale could help cover the “significant debt” they accumulated during their unhappy marriage.
According to the outlet, the retired athlete sold personal items, including designer clothes, to make monthly mortgage payments to avoid a home foreclosure auction earlier this year.
However, he claims in court papers that they are once again at risk of foreclosure after failing to make the July mortgage payment.
Even though Kroy admits that Zolciak also sold his daughter Brielle Biermann’s handbags and luxury goods, he claims that “none of the funds raised from the sale of these items was used to finance the mortgage or any other invoice.
The retired athlete’s request to sell his marital home comes a week after he filed for divorce from the 45-year-old ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ alum for the second time. They both initially filed for an end to their marriage in May.
According to TMZ, Kroy, 37, said in the latest documents that their union was “irretrievably broken.”
He also requested sole legal and physical custody of their four minor children: Kroy Jr., 12, Kash, 11, and twins Kaia and Kane, 9.
The outlet later reported that the former couple had a huge argument over finances, prompting Kroy to pull the plug again.
“They’ve gotten ridiculously mean about people who haven’t paid their bills,” a source told TMZ on Friday. “They count down to pennies.”
Insiders previously told Page Six that tensions had grown between the pair behind closed doors due to their growing financial troubles.
Not only was their mansion foreclosed earlier this year, but news of their split coincided with reports claiming they owed the IRS over $1 million.
Kroy also claimed in May that Zolciak’s gambling addiction had left their family “financially devastated”.
At the time, he claimed in court documents that the Bravolebrity “spent a great deal of marital time and money on gambling and other games of chance.”

Meanwhile, Saks/Capital One filed a lawsuit against Zolciak last week for more than $150,000 in unpaid credit card charges, according to court documents obtained by Page Six.
She was also sued by Target in June for $2,482.24 in unpaid credit card bills.
Her eldest daughter, Brielle, was also sued by American Express for failing to pay an outstanding balance of $12,870.25 on her credit card.
During this time, Kroy also faced legal action due to his money troubles. BMW Financial Services sued the former Atlanta Falcons player earlier this summer for failing to pay for a vehicle worth $400,100.
At the time, his lawyer pointed the finger at Zolciak, telling TMZ, “Mr. Biermann never imagined he would find himself in this situation, with a repossession of a car.
“But that’s what happens when people find themselves spending way beyond their means. Kroy has retired and no longer receives that salary from the NFL. … I don’t think anyone told Kim.
