T.I. recently asked the judge to bar the jewelers from suing for items sold before 2011, citing the statute of limitations. He also contented that he never got any of the jewelry that Aydin & Co. claims he swindled the company out of, and never actually signed any of the jeweler’s invoices for the jewelry, according to court docs. The rapper said he didn’t even know about the bills until Aydin & Co sued him. T.I. also said the jewelers haven’t produced texts or emails to back up their claims.
The “Whatever You Like” rapper said in an affidavit that his recollection of doing business with Aydin & Co. contradicts the jeweler’s contentions. He said that Aydin & Co. would periodically send him jewelry to look over. If he liked it, they negotiated a price. If he didn’t, he’d return it,
The company wants a jury trial, T.I. to testify and for the judge to dismiss T.I.’s motion for summary judgment in his favor, according to court papers.
The judge has yet to rule on the case.
This isn’t the only legal case that T.I. is battling; his divorce from wife Tiny is still active, even though she told the courts that she hasn’t been able to serve the rapper and no one showed up to a hearing last month.
