|Jonathan Jaxson with Kim Zolciak
I’ve got the tea on Jonathan Jaxson and Kim Zolciak, y’all. If you haven’t been following the drama, you can click here, here, here and here to catch up! Back in February of 2009, a couple of lawsuits were filed between Jaxson and Zolciak. Here’s what happened. Shortly after RHOA season one ended in November of 2008, Jaxson approached Zolciak about doing some PR work for her. At the time, Kim was semi-shacked up at her place with Lee Najjar, aka Big Poppa, who was bankrolling her.
Kim entered into a six month agreement with Jaxson to do PR work for her. She paid the five grand for three months and then there was a falling out and Kim stopped paying. Now my math says that if they met in November and even if November was the first month of payment, filing a lawsuit in February is premature. Kim probably had five thousand dollars in her purse at the time so what Jaxson did next was pretty foolish or simply another stunt on his part to draw some attention to himself.
Don’t miss the tea after the break!

Before he filed the lawsuit, Jaxson went onto a website he had made for Kim, KimZolciakonline (no longer in existence) and jacked it to read, “Site down to due non-payment. This site will be ‘non active’ due to failure of payment and a pending lawsuit against Ms. Zolciak.” It’s really not a wise business move to go straight to public humiliation when dealing with a client. Especially, a PR client. Supposedly, Kim threatened Jaxson when he requested payment and that is what set him off. I’m not sure I am buying that, but I would not be surprised if Big Poppa was not the one to cut him off in perhaps a not so nice fashion.
So off to court they went and Jaxson had to restore the website which he claims is his, and probably was because Kim already had www.kimzolciak.com . A gag order was placed, just like the one Jaxson had with Perez Hilton and he was unable to discuss the case. The interesting thing about the gag order Zolciak’s attorneys requested was this little tidbit:
There is to be no physical, electronic or verbal contact between the parties, including any contact by third parties acting on behalf of the parties to this case. The Court will consider contact by Lee Najjar to be contact by the Petitioner.
So it is sounds like Big Poppa did have a little talk with Jaxson about the matter.
During this war of words, Jaxson gave a vitriolic interview to Gaysocialites which is not longer in their archives. Here is a snippet of that interview that sort of sums things up.
Jaxson also says he plans to pull the rug from under Zolciak taking credit for helping her build her success to an “international level.”
Kim issued this brief statement to us: “Jonathan Jaxson ake Jonathan Lewandowski is not my rep, my manager, my publicist or affiliated with me any way shape or form [sic].” Jonathan also tells us she went on Fox Tuesday morning claiming that the two had never worked together.
To that Jonathan replied: “Kim Zolciak’s claims that I have never worked with her are as fake as her wigs. I have all proof stating otherwise,” Jason [sic] said. “I have a great gift and I have risen Kim’s spotlight to an international level. She would have never been involved in some of her biggest solo career moves without me.”

In September of 2009, Jaxson and Zolciak appeared on V-103 saying that they had kissed and made up. Jaxson was indeed out and about promoting Tardy for the Party with Kim in advance of the song’s debut on itunes. It was Kim and her gay, together again, all rainbows and unicorns.
And then a matter of days later, Jaxson went on B98.5 and trash talked Kim referring to her spending like crazy, being a former stripper named Barbie at the Cheetah, and spoiling an upcoming episode of RHOA by letting out that Big Poppa gave Kim a big ring. He also announced he was resigning as Kim’s publicist. DRAMA LLAMA!
It seems to me that Jonathan Jaxson has a history of being sued by celebrities. This is not his first trip to the celebrity rodeo courtroom but he appears to be all hat and no cattle.
What do you think? Are you sick of hearing about JJ here? It was the dramatic gay hissy fit that lured me in. I can’t help it, I love a good gay hissyfit. :) Leave a comment and please follow me on twitter! ~@tamaratattles
