Recently, a source told PEOPLE that "everyone expects this divorce is going to get really bad because neither of them will give in." And ever since submitting their respective filings, that has been the case.
PEOPLE obtained court documents of Zolciak-Biermann’s request for Biermann to "submit to a five-panel hair follicle drug screen." Per the documents, Zolciak-Biermann claiimed to have witnessed Biermann smoking marijuana and because of that, she is "fearful" and "has serious concerns for the safety and well being of the minor children" under his care.

But Biermann countered her filing with his own request to the court for a Motion for Psychological Evaluation.
The document alleged that Zolciak-Biermann "presented very troubling behavior which has accelerated in the months leading up to Petitioner's filing for divorce." He also claimed that his estranged wife "acknowledged spending substantial time and marital funds on gambling and other games of chance," and that her alleged gambling issue has supposedly "financially devastated the parties."
A source close to Zolciak-Biermann told PEOPLE at the time: "She's been gambling, that's true, but she has been winning. He is just trying to make it look like she has been losing money."
