There are always stories about artists getting jerked for their money, particularly at the start of their careers. No matter how many times the tales of recording artists are rehashed from different ones throughout the years, it always seems that it is still an ongoing thing. Real Housewives of Atlanta reality TV star, Kandi Burruss recalls the time when that took place with her.

Burruss started her career as a group member and songwriter for R&B recording artist, Xscape. While sitting down with former NFL player, Shannon Sharpe for his Club Shay Shay podcast, she revealed that at the beginning of the group, they signed a contract that wasn’t for much money.

“It wasn’t a lot of money for the first deal,” Burruss tells Sharpe. “We were just going along with whatever we were told to do as far as our managers or the people who were in place to tell us because we didn’t really know. Tiny and I were underage when we signed the deal. So our mommas had to co-sign on the dotted line with us.”

She also reminisced about doing shows every weekend and going out on tour to support the album. After being on the road performing, she mentioned that the group didn’t feel like they were making the type of money they felt they deserved.

“I remember we didn’t really make that much money after our first album, but we felt like we were doing shows every weekend. We were on a tour, and we were doing separate shows on weekends outside of the ones we were doing on the tour. So we’re like, ‘Where the money at?’ And it wasn’t that much money. For, like weeks and weeks of touring, we only probably had like $30,000 a piece.”

The group was speaking to an accountant and learned that there was money missing as his partner ghosted

“When we were sitting down with the accountant I remember he was saying, ‘This is for miscellaneous,’ and it was like 100-something thousand dollars. Then come to find out, it was two accountants that were partners and one of them disappeared. So I guess he disappeared with our money.”

From there, the group members learned a lesson about watching their finances.
