T.I. Calls Out His Business Partner Over Scales 925 Issues

There’s trouble brewing for “trouble man” T.I. over his downtown Atlanta restaurant.

The rapper who opened Scales 925’s doors in April 2015 is facing a lawsuit alongside his business partner Charles Hughes after disgruntled employees claimed Charles improperly paid them and gave them checks that bounced.


“Hughes used Scales LLC to create bank accounts for payroll. However, Hughes would deposit money from SCALES 925 into his personal account causing payroll checks to bounce,” the suit claims.

“Hughes has made fraudulent statements to restaurant employees concerning the hours the employees worked at SCALES 925. For example, Hughes used a time and billing software call ALOHA for keeping track of employee hours.

The software would delete hours or not keep track of hours exceeding 40 hours per week. Employees complained to Hughes but were told it was nothing he could do.”

Additionally, Scales has reportedly been served an eviction notice for over $1 million in back rent to the establishment’s landlord.
RhymesWithSnitch reports:

According to reports sheriffs deputies are serving an eviction notice on T.I.’s downtown Atlanta restaurant as we speak.

The landlord tells WSBTV T.I. hasn’t paid his rent in months and owes over $1 million.

Messy, messy, messy.


T.I. has since responded to the allegations about his restaurant and is admitting that it was a “mistake.”

Hit the flip for his statement.

T.I. is calling out his business partner Charles Hughes and denying any affiliation with him. According to Tip, he “disrespected his brand” at Scales.

“We have NO dealings or partnerships outside of my restaurants Scales 925 which was a HUGE mistake in hindsight,” said Tip.Screen Shot 2016-08-11 at 8.28.05 AM
