Porsha Williams was name-dropped in her Real Housewives of Atlanta costar Kenya Moore’s custody battle after a court-appointed official’s relationship with her was called into question.
According to court documents obtained by Radar, Kenya’s ex Marc Daly had concerns about the official’s conflict of interests due to her friendship with Porsha.
As we first reported, last year, Kenya sued her ex for primary custody of their daughter Brooklyn and demanded child support.
Marc said he had no issues with their kid living with his ex, but he wanted to have a flexible visitation schedule. As part of the dispute, the judge put a guardian ad litem in place, who is a court-appointed official responsible for investigating the case.
The guardian ad litem interviews the parents, child and others involved. According to court docs, a month after the judge appointed a woman named Rachel St. Fleur, Marc rushed to court demanding the individual be taken off the case.
He said the official was “very open and candid about the fact that she knew of the Parties and that she had seen episodes of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
He said the official had knowledge of their relationship. St. Fleur later revealed she was present at one of Marc’s parties where she witnessed him get into a verbal altercation with Kenya.
Marc said, “The altercation that occurred at the event was a major event in the parties’ relationship. In fact, within days of the event the couple publicly announced they were separating.”
Marc said this was a big conflict of interest and she should be removed. He also claimed St. Fleur had attended high school with Kenya’s costar, Porsha Williams.
He said, “It is unclear how much contact” she had with Porsha but “her relationship and connection to someone on the show with the Petitioner causes some concern.”
Marc said “in no way” was he accusing St. Fleur of acting inappropriately but the connection caused concern. He also claimed he was unable to pay the costs due to the pandemic screwing with his finances.
The motion didn’t seem to go anywhere because months later a settlement was hashed out. Kenya and Marc finally reached a consent order over custody in June.
Per their deal, Kenya will have primary custody and she will be allowed to shoot RHOA despite her father’s objections. In May, Kenya filed a separate divorce case against Marc.
Despite the previous consent order, the Bravo star also included a request for primary custody. She is demanding child support from Marc. In her petition, she listed the date of marriage as June 10, 2017, and the date of separation as September 19, 2019.
For his part, Marc is asking the court to award him a cut of the Georgia home they lived in. The pad was purchased by Kenya years before meeting Marc.
Recently, Kenya pleaded for the case to be sealed out of fear her private information would be leaked. A judge has yet to rule on her request.
