If The Shoe Fits
The 10 remaining hustlers have to create a new shoe line, but will they meet T.I.’s high standards? Cracks form within the teams, and chaos ensues, sending one unfortunate hustler to hit the pavement.
Back in June it was reported, TIP settled with 9 of 11 employees who went after him after his Scales 925 shut down in 2016. Each will get $8,333.33 in unpaid money … totaling about $75,000. The rapper is also on the hook for another $25,000 in attorney’s fees — do the math and it’s right around $100,000.
TIP is being accused of fraudulently transferring $40,000 to himself and his business partners, instead of paying off the settlement he owes to his former restaurant employees, and now they have hit his now-shuttered company with a federal lawsuit.
According to the Blast reports, The same ex-employees who settled with T.I. and his partner earlier this year went to bankruptcy court to file a brand new lawsuit against the rapper and his partners.
Back in February, T.I. and his partners reached a settlement to pay $78,000 to a group of ex-employees – including Avery Lee, Kyle Vargas, Khori Vargas, and Shawn Yarborough – to end their lawsuit accusing the rapper of screwing them out of overtime pay.
The new lawsuit claims T.I. settled a separate lawsuit with a business partner and was paid $40,000. The ex-employees say he and his partners hid this payment from their creditors and kept the asset for their own personal use.
The ex-employees claim T.I. has only paid a portion of what was owed to them, so they believe the $40,000 should have gone to them.
T.I. has yet to respond to the new lawsuit.
