Aydin & Company Said T.I. Screwed Them Out Of Pricey Bling
A jewelry company that is suing T.I. for not paying for nearly $1 million in baubles blasted the rapper for his legal maneuvers to try to get out of the alleged debt, BOSSIP has learned.
Jeweler to the stars Aydin & Co sued T.I. in 2015 for breach of contract for blowing off their oral contract, and said he owed some $755,000 for bling he never paid for.
TI denied owing any money to the jewelers, and said that even if he did, the case was barred by the statute of limitations. He’s asked a judge to issue a ruling in his favor ASAP.
The jewelry company said it sold T.I. hundreds of thousands worth of bling from 2004 through 2012. Aydin & Co. said the rapper showered himself and his loved ones in pricey baubles, including $9,500 diamond hoop earrings, a 48-carat diamond chain, two $10,000 custom-made dog tags, a $24,500 women’s diamond bracelet, a $30,000 blue diamond watch, and a $13,500 men’s wedding band. Also listed was $40,000 in “assorted women’s jewelry,” and seven custom made diamond pendants for $145,000, among other items.
Aydin & Co. said T.I. had an open account with the company, and had been making payments until he suddenly stopped in 2013. Company owner Fevzi Aydin said he tried reaching out to T.I.for payment, but to no avail, and that’s when he filed the lawsuit.
