“That was not the news I ever expected to get,” Cohen said Tuesday on his radio program. “They seemed so much in love and just together. I mean, they were a couple that, yeah, I thought they were in it for the long haul. Very surprised. Sorry to hear that there may be some financial issues. TMZ is reporting that they owe a million dollars to the IRS. Texted a little bit with Kim yesterday, sent my condolences because it’s a sad thing. They have kids and that was just a couple that seemed very much in love.”

Zolciak and Biermann have six kids total; two from her previous relationships and four together.

Legal documents obtained by TMZ show Zolciak-Biermann filed for divorce on April 30, stating their marriage was “irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation.”
