On the most recent episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Porsha Williams slammed her baby daddy, Dennis McKinley, for refusing to propose. But a new report claims that she should be worried about his shady business practices.
McKinley owns a company called Queen Virgin Remy Hair, which sells weaves and extensions, and in 2014 he was hit with a lawsuit. According to court papers from the Magistrate Court of Fulton County, Kimberly Garlick accused McKinley of selling her $400 worth of “faulty merchandise.”
McKinley filed a motion to dismiss the suit, claiming that Garlick “falsely indicated that she has an account with Defendant.”

“There is no legitimate basis under the facts of this case to substantiate a claim upon which relief may be granted,” he wrote. “Defendant [McKinley] has never sold any merchandise to Plaintiff [Kimberly Garlick] nor has had any dealings with Plaintiff, and therefore is an improperly named party to the lawsuit.”
McKinley then asked the court to dismiss the case with prejudice.
The next year, McKinley took Shanise Thomason to court for “trademark infringement, conversion, and other wrong wrongful acts” connected to Queen Virgin Remy. He claimed that Thomason stole $5,900 worth of merchandise from the Georgia retail store.
In his complaint, McKinley claimed that Thomason walked behind the front counter and went into the stock room, and then removed hair products from storage by placing them in a black trash bag and leaving the store.

According to Radar Online, Thomason avoided getting arrested by claiming that she “shared ownership” of the store. However, she later turned herself into the Columbus Police Department, and they charged her with shoplifting.
Thomason denied the shoplifting allegations, and she said in her counterclaim that McKinley didn’t include her on the company documents for the business, and that was a violation of their partnership agreements.
McKinley admitted that he had discussed with Thomason the possibility of joining separate businesses under a single storefront, but nothing ever came of the discussion.
The two eventually made a confidential settlement in July 2018.

Williams announced her pregnancy with McKinley back in September. They started dating earlier this year and got engaged in October. They are expecting a baby girl.
Fans of RHOA watched Williams and McKinley go through their first fight during last week’s episode, but the lover spat didn’t last very long.
Porsha Williams said that she was enjoying where she was at the moment and didn’t want to mess it up. Some fans thought that Williams picked a fight with Dennis McKinley because she was on camera.
