Much has been said about Kenya Moore over the past few days thanks to NeNe Leakes, who claims that Moore set her up to look bad at a charity event on Sunday night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” However, the disses recently became worse when the charity, Saving Our Daughters, accused Moore of failing to pay them thousands of dollars for the night. Now, Moore is fighting back and presenting proof that she did pay the charity.
The drama all began yesterday when Curtis Benjamin, Founder and CEO of Saving Our Daughters released a statement saying that the setup of the event changed throughout the process and that Moore never gave them a dime.
“Our charity was contacted by publicist April Love to get approval and give notice of this upcoming event. Much to our delight, we were indeed honored to be chosen. After all, one of our largest financial contributors, Mrs. NeNe Leakes who has been responsible for contributions in the thousands of dollars throughout the years, is a member of the cast,” Benjamin wrote.
“Days later, to our surprise Ms. Love did contact me and inform me that she had decided to terminate her company’s involvement with this event. At that point, Ms. Moore contacted me to continue moving forward with the event as purposed and planned. This call took place a day before the event was scheduled to take place,” Benjamin claimed.
Benjamin claims that he was not aware that Leakes was being honored at the event and that, even though he was appreciative the event being thrown for his charity, he was not happy with the negativity that came with it. Benjamin concludes that Moore never even gave them the money she claims she raised for them.
“In closing, Ms. Kenya Moore stated that thousands of dollars were raised at this event. To protect the integrity of Saving Our Daughters, our records show that we did not receive any of the proceeds raised from Ms. Moore’s masquerade ball,” he wrote.
“However, we do appreciate the contribution we did receive of $500 for our annual Christmas doll drive for children with cancer,” he added.
Never being one to back down from a fight, Moore quickly responded with a statement to Lovebscott.com as well as checks and text messages to Benjamin proving that she did pay the charity and that Leakes knew about the event. Check out her proof below. – nicholas robinson
