Wedding Planner Sues NeNe Leakes For $2.5 Million

Linnethia Leakes, who got remarried to ex-husband Gregg last month for a made-for-TV-special on Bravo, was just slapped with a lawsuit from a woman who claimed she planned the spectacle. No, it's not Sheree's party planner, but a woman named Tiffany Cook. Tiffany says Linnethia refuses to pay her a balance of  $1,142,900, so she's suing the reality queen for more than $2.5 million -- because she can.
"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes is being sued by her "celebrity wedding planner" -- who claims NeNe racked up a MILLION DOLLAR bill for her big day ... and never paid, TMZ has learned. The woman going after Leakes is Tiffany Cook -- who claims NeNe hired Dream Design Weddings to coordinate the party for her marriage to Gregg Leakes on June 22, 2013 ... a wedding that will featured on a Bravo TV special in September. In her suit, filed in Georgia, Cook claims Leakes promised to pay her 15% of the entire wedding budget PLUS fees design and execution of the wedding PLUS travel expenses to the event. In total, Cook claims NeNe's budget for the wedding was $1.8 MILLION!!!!!!!!! And Cook claims she was due $270k (the 15%) PLUS another $889,900 (design fees) PLUS $1,750 (4 coach tickets from Florida to Georgia). Cook claims NeNe did fork over the initial down payment ($18,750) ... but she hasn't seen a penny since -- and is suing for the remaining $1,142,900 balance ... PLUS damages. In total, Cook -- who also put together Kordell Stewart's wedding to Porsha -- wants more than $2.5 MILLION for her troubles.

The folks over at TMZ, reached out to Linnethia's spokesperson, who told them Tony Conway was the wedding planner, not Tiffany, therefore her "lawsuit has no merit and it appears to be a baseless attempt to grab 15 min of fame."
