Nothing like going on vacation to momentarily escape your problems!
On Tuesday, the 50-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta star and her 2-year-old daughter, Brooklyn Doris Daly, galavanted along the beach of Santa Monica, California, while posing for the camera in some very adorable Instagram snaps.
Kenya held Brooklyn's hand as the toddler walked atop a short ledge, while the bustling view of the Santa Monica pier could be seen clearly behind them.
The mother of one glowed in a royal blue maxi dress and sparkly sandals. She held onto a gorgeous floral tote, as her long dark locks perfectly framed her naturally made-up face.
As for Baby Brookie, she rocked a light pink T-shirt and denim shorts whose matching pink pockets peeped out from underneath the cutoff of each leg. Her hair was up and away from her face, which looked onward and upward in wonder and joy.
Based solely on the carefree expression on Mom's face, one would never know the legal stresses awaiting her in Georgia.
As Radar has been the first to report, Moore and Daly have been involved in some pretty nasty court proceedings over money and child support. Brooklyn is both Kenya and Marc's only child.
Last year, Moore secretly filed a lawsuit against Daly, demanding primary custody of Brooklyn. She also asked the court to order Marc to pay her child support.
Marc didn't object to Kenya's request because he acknowledged that she had had primary custody of their baby girl since birth. He did, however, try to block his ex from allowing their child to appear on RHOA.
As it is, Brooklyn's cameos on the reality television show have been few and far between.
In June, the judge decided to award Moore primary custody. He also declared that Brooklyn could continue filming the show because he found no evidence that it was harmful to her.
Around the same time, Kenya filed for divorce. That case is still pending.
Daly told the judge he was "blindsided" by Moore's custody lawsuit, given that they had already decided outside of court that Kenya would have primary custody and that Marc would pay her $4,000 a month in child support.
He made sure to note that he was a restaurant owner who had suffered great economic losses due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Marc claimed he was already paying Kenya a grand per week, "even though he has not had an income for several months." On the flip side, Daly's attorney argued that Moore had substantial financial means and had "never expressed a need for more financial support from [Daly]."
Marc accused Kenya of filing the custody lawsuit only to "create a false narrative for the reality show that [Moore] is filming." At the time, Daly said that due to his loss of income, Kenya was the "family's breadwinner."
His attorneys argued that she was pulling in money from RHOA, her acting career and her hair care company, and demanded that she cough up $5,000 for Marc's attorneys' fees.
In response, the Bravo star trashed the restauranteur, claiming she sued him as a means to protect herself because he allegedly tried to fight her for custody back in 2019. Therefore, she said she needed the court to step in. She also alluded to Marc having never spent a full day with Brooklyn.
Moore lives in Atlanta, while Daly resides in New York City.
Additionally, Kenya accused her ex of trying to "cloud the factual narrative" by claiming "he is financially stable and earning sufficient income to support in his counterclaim, but then turns and cries for help in his motion for attorney fees where he claims insolvent."
The final consent order made no mention of legal fees, and the two will continue their divorce battle in court.
