Todd Tucker And Kandi Burruss Facing Liens For ‘Old Lady Gang’

Remember when Todd and Kandi announced plans to open their Old Lady Gang soul-food restaurant featuring the culinary skills of Mama Joyce, Aunt Nora and Aunt Bertha?


Well there’s trouble brewing at the construction site of the ATL establishment and two workers are alleging that they’ve yet to be paid by the couple.

A carpenter alleges that he’s owed over $16,000 and received bad checks from their general contractor, and a HVAC contractor says he’s owed over $5,000 for his work.

The Daily Mail reports: 

According to documents exclusively seen by, the two workers have not been paid for construction done on the Old Lady Gang eatery – which is not yet up and running, despite being meant to open in February.

The court documents show that the reality stars have been hit with one lien for $16,512 by a carpenter named Charles Busbee.

He was supposed to be paid by June 30 but says has not yet received any money.


Busbee claims the general contractor hired by the couple to manage the renovation of their new restaurant issued fraudulent checks. Writing fraudulent checks is a felony in Georgia and Busbee is demanding he be paid immediately or he will have to take further action.

‘I have spoken with you on numerous occasions since you wrote the three (3) checks, and I have received only empty promises to match my empty pockets,’ Busbee wrote to the GC.

A second worker, an HVAC contractor named Tyrone Manuel, says he provided a three-tonne system inside the kitchen area and a five-tonne one in the lobby area, plus other materials.

He says he is owed $5,366 and was meant to be paid by the end of August.


Kandi recently noted that the restaurant is “driving her crazy.”


Poor thang!

The restaurant industry is clearly tough to get into, just ask T.I. and Peter Thomas.
