Kim Zolciak-Biermann seems suspicious of her husband, a former NFL player kroy biermannYou may suffer from Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disorder believed to be caused by repeated head injuries.
During a phone call with the Milton County officer james spivey Obtained by Us Weekly, Zolciak-Biermann, 45, described a terrifying case when Biermann, 37, locked her out of their shared home while trying to retrieve her medication in May.
“He’s diabolical, he just wants to wreak havoc,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum said. “I mean you would think I cheated on the guy, the way he behaves. It’s like super weird and erratic behavior and I never know who I’m going to catch.”
Zolciak-Biermann told the police officer that Biermann “kicked the door in” and “let the alarm go off.” The reality star contemplated moving out and getting a “restraining order” in the midst of the situation. Spivey was able to contact Biermann and told Zolciak-Biermann that her husband left her medication in the hallway so she could retrieve it.
While Zolciak-Biermann did not say outright that he believes the former football player has the brain disorder, he hinted as much when he said the NFL should “take responsibility for these rackets.”
“I know that’s what they’re looking into on the whole CTE thing because the league’s responsibility to, you know, handle that and take a closer look at it beforehand,” the official stated on the call. “I don’t know if that’s what he’s dealing with, but you know.”
According to the Mayo Clinic, CTE is common among soccer players. (Biermann played for the Atlanta Falcons from 2008 to 2015.) The condition causes the death of nerve cells in the brain, known as degeneration, and worsens over time. Symptoms include problems with thinking and emotions, physical problems, and other behaviors. A person with CTE can only be diagnosed with the disease after death when an autopsy is performed on the brain.
On the call with police, Zolciak-Biermann went on to describe a previous encounter with a former neighbor who had the condition and ultimately died of it. She noted that she saw similarities between the person and her husband’s current behavior.
“[It is] the exact same symptoms, the same anger, the attacks,” he said on the call. “You can’t calm Kroy down. Like, he literally goes from crying, with his head in his hands, in the closet, on the floor.”
The call took place during the couple’s messy divorce drama. Us Weekly confirmed in May that the former NFL player filed for divorce after more than a decade of marriage. Their separation became even more tumultuous when they became involved in a legal battle over custody of their four children, Kroy “KJ” Jr., 11, and Kash, 10, and twins Kaia and Kane, 9, and publicly attacked each other.
However, two months after their initial split, Zolciak-Biermann and Biermann decided to reconcile after being spotted on a family trip to church. A source told us in July that the couple was trying to work things out for their children, but things could change over time. They have filed to withdraw their divorce petition.
