Rapper T.I. is learning that the restaurant business just might be tougher than the music business. The rap mogul has been hit with a lawsuit by former employees of his new downtown restaurant Scales 925. According to Billboard.com, twelve employees claim the restaurant refused to give them their final paychecks and they were not paid properly for hours worked.
The lawsuit filed at the U.S District Court in Atlanta names rapper T.I. (Clifford Harris, Jr.) and his business partner Charles Hughes as defendants. Other claims by the disgruntled employees include they were coerced to work off the clock for three hours before they were allowed to go home. This is not a good look for yet another restaurant in Atlanta.
Apparently reps for Scales 925 are taking the allegations seriously and are looking into the matter. Let’s hope they can get down to the bottom of the allegations before T.I. ends up in another federal courtroom…it’s all #LoveAndRnB!
