October was a bad month for Sheree Whitfield. On October 5th TVGuide online accidentally used a picture of Sheree on their site with an obituary for a drag queen. Just one week later on October 12th, Bob Whitfield was successful in getting a major reduction in his child support payments from Sheree saving himself more than $20,000. This was difficult for some of you to follow because there was lots of math involved, but if you care for the details you can read it all here. That case was handled by an attorney named Nicol Hanyard. Bob was not required by the court to pay Sheree’s legal fees so Sheree is still in debt to Atty Hanyard for at least $25,000. So that will be added to Sheree’s long line of debts.
That brings us to the court case that TMZ reported on yesterday…,
The case that TMZ reported on has to do with the divorce attorney that initially represented Sheree back in 2005. Sheree took her divorce settlement case all the way to the Georgia Supreme court. This is a process that takes years. Bob Whitfield represented himself and Sheree used a law firm by the name of Weinstock & Scavo. In November of 2010, that law firm had her Aston Martin seized by the court to apply the proceeds to their bill. ALLEGEDLY, Sheree bought the Aston Martin with funds she acquired during the divorce settlement that she was supposed to use to buy a home for her children and to pay her attorneys. While that money was applied to the bill, the remainder was never paid. The divorce case took several years to resolve resulting in bills in the neighborhood of $200,000.
On October 22, 2012 that case was finally closed. The final order showed the law firm was still owed $119, 674 by the defendants. HOWEVER, Sheree was not the only defendant. She was the defendant that incurred the debt but the divorce attorney also somehow managed to include Bob Whitfield, his former music studio (a lien), and a couple of other random attorneys. I have not read the final order and it is likely that the judge found the other defendants to not be liable for the debt. But it looks like Weinstock & Scavo were trying to find someone to sue who might actually have the money to pay them. Sheree is in debt up to her eyeballs and here sole source of income other than Bob’s child support is sells cheap jewelry for an online multi-level marketing site.
Frankly I really didn’t find any of that interesting. What I found interesting is that the last activity at Chateau Sheree occurred on November 4th. That was a Sunday by the way. I have no idea why but a truck with some insulation arrived at the Chateau on Sunday, November 4th, dumped it and no one has been seen on the property since then. It appears that all of these court orders for Sheree to pay up have caused the complete shutdown of construction. And last I checked the house was in Sheree’s oldest daughter’s name. It’s seems that Nene is right and Sheree really is building Neverland.
