NeNe Leakes is batting back at reports of tax drama.

On Friday, PEOPLE obtained court documents that revealed The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 48, owes a total of $824,366.01 in back taxes for the year 2014. On Sunday, the reality star seemed to make light of her situation in posts on social media.

“4 all those that r asking, reporting & concern…Yes I am broke & unemployed,” her first tweet began. “Just another dumb Celeb that doesn’t know how 2 money manage. My priorities r all screwed up! I’m just a damn fool out here about to lose my house! Please start a Go Fund Me.”

Some fans jumped to the assumption that Leakes was hacked, but she declared it was in fact her and added “pray for me.”

Leakes, whose real name is Linnethia Monique Leakes, was hit with a federal tax lien on July 22 in a Georgia court, according to the documents. The IRS has made a demand for payment of the liability, but it remains unpaid. As a result, Leakes’ assets and properties may begin to be seized in order to collect on her debt.

Following the surfacing of the court documents, Leakes shared a lighthearted photo on Instagram with the caption: “Running out the hotel to pay this bill y’all know I ain’t got no jobsssssss let me borrow 20$.”
