Kroy Biermann is said to be blindsided and devastated by wife Kim Zolciak’s decision to end their marriage after a decade together.
And since being served divorce papers, the 37-year-old former NFL star has changed his Instagram bio to include the phrase, ‘my ring meant a thing,’ throwing shade at his soon-to-be ex-wife, 44, as he referenced her song Ring Didn’t Mean A Thing.
His bio now reads, ‘Husband. Father to six perfect munchkins. Athlete. My ring Meant a Thing, You can Google Me & see I wasn’t Tardy for that Party.’
Zolciak’s daughter Brielle Biermann, 26, has also unfollowed her adoptive father on the site in the wake of the split.
The reality television personality follows 233 people on the app and her dad is no longer one of them.

Brielle was blindsided by her parents’ split, along with the rest of the family, DailyMail.com learned.
For his part, Kroy still follows his six children and his former spouse on the platform.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star and former Atlanta Falcons athlete share KJ, 11, Kash, 10, and twins Kaia and Kane, 9. Kroy adopted Brielle and her sister Ariana, 21, in 2013.
Fans of the Bravo TV family were left shocked on Monday when news broke that Kim filed to end her 11-year marriage.
Kroy has not posted to his Instagram grid since October 21, 2021 and that post gave a glimpse of his married life with Kim.
He uploaded a photo of meat in a cast iron skillet and wrote, ‘Homemade Carne Asada!! thanks for the help babe,’ and tagged his then-wife.
Kim stated in court documents that her once-fairytale marriage was ‘irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation.’
The official date of separation in the legal documents was listed as April 30, 2023.
Kim Zolciak ‘blamed’ her husband Kroy Biermann (seen in 2017) for their financial woes, a source has revealed – despite ‘relying on him for everything’ for years
Kim, 44, blindsided her family with her secret divorce plans – leaving her daughter Brielle, 26, who was adopted by Kroy as a minor, particularly devastated
An insider with exclusive knowledge of the situation revealed the root of that ‘break,’ telling DailyMail.com that the breakdown of the couple’s relationship began with their financial struggles – which Kim ‘blamed’ Kroy for, despite allowing him to take control of much of their finances ‘for years.’
‘Kroy did everything for Kim,’ the source explained. ‘He was her manager, her assistant, and her husband.
‘She leaned on him for so many years and relied on him for everything. She also took him for granted and she blamed him when their financial situation went to hell.’
In the wake of the divorce announcement, it’s been alleged that Kim and Kroy owe $1.1 million in unpaid taxes, a debt that piled up after they reportedly failed to pay the IRS in 2013, 2017, and 2018.
The couple’s money woes are understood to have put their lavish Georgia mansion into possible foreclosure in February – and it was then that their ‘fighting really intensified,’ the insider added, noting that the bitter financial spats between the two ‘haven’t stopped since.’
To make matters worse, Kim kept her plans to divorce the former athlete from her entire family, including the kids they share.

Brielle, who became especially close to Kroy during the marriage, has been left devastated by the news of her parents’ split, which the source revealed she only learned about shortly before her father did.
‘Brielle found out about her mother divorcing Kroy shortly before Kroy found out,’ the insider said.
‘Although she is not completely shocked by it, she is taking the news pretty hard because she feels that there could have been open communication within their family.
‘Instead, Kim just did this without thinking about how it will affect anyone else. Brielle loves both of her parents and she is just trying her best to hold it together and be there for her younger siblings.’
