Judge Terrinee Gundy

An Atlanta Municipal Court Judge is accused of using public funds to pay for lavish gifts, luxurious stationary and a party for former Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.

Embattled Judge Terrinee Gundy was appointed to the bench by Reed, who is rumored to be her former lover.

According to a report on the AJC.com website, Gundy spent $4,156 on stationary, including gold-seal letterhead, as well three glass “flame of excellence” sculptures for her courtroom. The sculptures alone cost $1,800.

One glass sculpture was engraved: “Mayor Kasim Reed, Flame of Excellence” in honor of Reed for his 2017 Masked Ball, an annual black tie affair that was invite-only for Atlanta's elite tastemakers.

Gundy, who apparently helped to organize the 2017 Mayor's Masked Ball, spent $2,588 on 400 custom invites to the after-party, which were handed out to the guests at the Mayor's Masked Ball.

The judge's personal assistant ordered the invites. "Judge Gundy would like to know if you all printed event tickets. We need them on the fancier side, as it’s for a city event,” the assistant wrote in an email dated Oct. 30.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Channel 2 Action News obtained the spending reports through a Georgia Open Records Act request.

The spending documents reviewed by Channel 2 and the AJC show that neither Gundy nor any member of her staff sought approval for any of the purchases.

Judge Terrinee is already under investigation for frequently canceling court sessions and showing up late to court.

Mary Hooks, who works with the defendants’ advocacy group Southerners On New Ground, tells Channel 2 Action News the defendants, most of whom are poor, mentally ill, or homeless, end up staying in jail until court can be rescheduled.

Judge Gundy is a well-known Atlanta socialite who is a fixture at music industry parties. She is the ex-wife of music producer Kevin "She'kspere" Briggs (who co-wrote Destiny's Child's hit song "Bills, Bills, Bills").

Reed is under investigation for allegedly using the city's funds as his personal piggy bank to enrich friends and staff.

    From the beginning of time black men can never get it together because they are always chasing behind. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9fd6a5df4c0f93329962e51e3d48039924ecfcd8c975c47b3ae1b39872d1b556.gif

  • FukkFolks2018

    She is the ex-wife of music producer Kevin “She’kspere” Briggs (who co-wrote Destiny’s Child’s hit song “Bills, Bills, Bills”).
    He was a late 90s songwriting and producing BEAST. He also co-wrote No Scrubs alongside Tiny and his ex gf...Kandi "Beef Curtains" Burruss-Tucker.

    Guess he moved on to shadier pastures.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Is this the judge that be in the clubs too?? She needs to tread lightly ?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Coincidentally I randomly just watched a ''Why You Shouldn't Move to Atlanta" video and they were talking about the corruption and promiscuity, etc.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Lol..."beef curtains" ?

  • Kanyade

    $4,156 on stationary
    child, now i'm old school and love a nice thank you note and a good fountain pen, but gee whilikers, i don't love stationary 4-thousand-much! sheesh.

  • Michelle Peele

    Hollered at 'beef curtains'...LMAO!!!

  • Yoni7

    RIGHT! That's a downpayment on a winter beater.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Those her own exact words *snorts*

  • KcoolMuziq

    Kandi has a type all her men lookalike. I worked with her current husband Todd Tucker once upon a time.

    oh well, if you indeed misused public funds, you get what you get. a former baltimore mayor was convicted over gift cards (i mean, really Sis????) what DON'T yall get about NOT doing stupid sh*t?!!!

    just because you're on the bench doesn't mean you're above the law. IF she did this it was stupid and avoidable. this judge exercises poor judgment (allegedly), smh

  • Trace da Ace

    damn...."beef curtains" just painted the ugliest picture in my head....now I need it to leave....damn....vaginal rejuvenation that shit...

    i can never eat Arby's again..

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Nothing new here. People have done worse in Atlanta and other big cities and gotten away with it. This woman used poor judgment, but I don't think any of this was criminal, so I'm sure it'll just get swept under the rug at some point.

  • kekeb

    This is BS. all the money they're frivolously spending could be used towards the poor and working class. This is insulting and should be criminally prosecuted

  • Logan Roberts

    Her eyes are so creepy.

    So basically the documentary said Atlanta is full of crooked hoes? ?
    Where'd you see this documentary?

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Welp, different city, same corruption. Ever wonder how certain people in your city, seem to just blow up over night? Take a deep look into their connections and you'll find your answer.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Yep!!! That is her.

    Her eyes look strange...

  • stav

    She looks like she could be in the Fenty family, maybe Rihanna's aunty.

  • stav

    Very cat-like!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Using authority to abuse power ... Same shyt

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I was just speaking with someone about people wrongly labeling folks as "snitches".

    We both came to the conclusion that, it's someone who is on their way down and is willing to take everyone with them. Not someone who witnessed a crime and choose to come forward.

    Now with that said, I wonder who's going down and chose to take her with them.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Same sh?t, different city. Smh.

  • Capricornlady

    She LOOKS evil. Evil heffa

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    it's plausible. it could also be a disgruntled county employee whose family member spent the weekend in jail because the judge didn't come to court that Friday, lol

  • Truth

    I would never trust someone with eyes like that!Ever !

  • Mr.LeBrickJames


  • KLove

  • Bashi22

    You see white mayor does this all the time but why aren't they under-investigation as well? How do they hide their dirty so well that it's untraceable to the naked eyes?. Why these black mayor always under investigation ? lol

  • RealATLPeach36

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Could be. I thought it was the lady who's in the photo with her, since the article said they both were after the samed man.

  • Marlika

    Throw the whole judge away along with her colored contacts. ?????

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Like the lady, who turned into a demon, in the dressing room, when she was changing her clothes, in the movie The Devils Advocate.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    There's nothing worse than a woman scorned... except a woman scorned who was just elected mayor of a major metropolitan city.


    You sure are right Sandra.

  • dru and neil

    It is a little dated. I had the short up top, long in the back hairstyle in the 90s back in high school..then just cut the back off as it went out of style. Yes she just needs to cut the back off.

    I would rather see THIS as a reality show than RHOA. These characters seem way more compelling than the bimbos on that show.

  • the guest

    The white mayor in Charleston SC got caught taking money from an old lady account with no permission (that called stealing?) and it wasn’t nothing. A black mayor woulda been in the jail for sure.

  • BingBangBoom

    Is Dr. Jackie the only legit person in that pic? Again what is going down in the black Wall street they call Atlanta?

  • davine puddin

    After the Reed administration did what they did to that white restaurant owner who was running for mayor and had water shut off on the block then had work crew there for months ruining his business. His wife was harrassed bad and stayed in Switzerland for a while. I lost all respect for reed. Also how he overly regulated us taxi drivers than got his brother a cushy job at uber. Oh yeah i forgot his momma cushy job at united negro college fund.his mom is down to earth. Or perhaps she act like she can relate to us little people. When he allowed our hockey team to leave without a good bye and how he dissed the braves. I can go on and on. Im in philly now. Sigh!

  • Miss Thang

    oh God, my mom had a straight up mullet from like '87 to '91. And a lot of acid wash denim jeans and jackets :'(

  • kirenee0425

    She’s a little scary looking in that first pic....

  • B????A ?

    All the rich Black women in Atlanta are grimy. First the dancing Black surgeon, now this thieving bitch. People get a little money and then act a fool.

  • Roxie Moxie

    Laws were written for and by white men. They were to benefit them while disadvantaging others (primarily those with melanin). They have loopholes and prosecution for them is selective and situational; they have the complexion for protection.

    Everything we do is magnified 1000 times over and there is always someone watching our backs at all times.....and not in a supportive way.

    Kamala Harris had Willie Brown out in California to help her with her come up, allegedly . She was his girlfriend while he was married, allegedly. He put her on committees and introduced her to the political people in California, allegedly.

  • Evillene

    Agree. It is worse when black folks do it. They squander the limited political capital of the black electorate and dont do anything to make things better. Here they are misusing tax dollars and making it harder for the honest, well-intentioned black folks who SHOULD hold office to get elected.

    Atlanta is Sodom and Gomorrah on Steroids.

    Who is Jovita?!

  • MsPam

    And bought her a car!

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    The best unsolicited advice I can offer anyone is that no person became rich by doing the right thing. Somewhere along the way, he/she did something shady.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I doubt it.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    yep, her eyes. I worked with her at Cox many moons ago.

  • MsPam

    You know this want to be has to insert himself into everything. Raise your hand if you are impressed with this flunky to the stars!

    She wasn't evil. Terrinee always seemed nice and greeted me with a smile whenever we saw each other. She was pregnant during the months we worked together. I remember her leaving the company and never returning. Idk, at the time, she was married to a hot music producer.

  • Jussjess25

    Agreed she looks weird

  • the guest

    How did this happen? I read Karim Reed’s biography and he reads like straight and narrow, honorable, a legend in the making. I don’t understand. Was he being set up?

  • the guest

    I don’t think she’s evil. I think she’s unhappy with her career as a morning criminal court judge which gives her status and financial security but it is not glamorous and her career infringes on her passion for living the life of a full time socialite.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yep, the socialite life starts at dark. You're so right. She has the job stability, but I think she does want the jet setter life, especially after getting a taste of it while being married to She'kespere and meeting so many millionaires and people in power.
