Skippin’ Out on the Tab

Usher’s mom is being investigated by one-time:

Police have launched an investigation looking into whether or not Usher’s mother and former manager, Jonnetta Patton, scammed a limo driver during the recent BET Awards.

A freelance limo driver says that Patton used his services for her Atlanta-based transportation company, but never paid him his $1,668 for services. He has since filed a complaint. According to TMZ, Patton’s camp is currently mum regarding the complaint and investigation. Dekalb County detectives are actively looking into the case.

Come on, Jonetta; you couldn’t afford to pay that little tab? We can only imagine that something must have happened to disrupt her monthly allowance from Usher. SMH

    Please, this is probably nothing more than an oversight. $1600 is NOTHING when you have millions. Her assistant probably didn’t write the check, not her.

    Whatever….this limo driver is lame, a simple phone call to usher could have probably gotton this character double. Instead, he wants publicity.Leave Ms. Raymond alooooooone!

    Believe this celebrities and their cohorts are notorious for not paying people or complaining about their services to get it free or for a discount. The limo driver has no choice but to pursue the person who ordered the limo. Pay up or else get your name smeared in the paper like it should be.

  • Its The Foosa

    why are the police looking into this…this is a civil matter that should be handled in small claims court, not criminal.

    @foosa When living in Georgia you must know their laws. Anytime you don’t pay, or write a bad check to pay, it becomes a criminal matter in Georgia. Any law enforcement personal has the power to arrest you, even the dog catcher can arrest you. Ushers mom better watch herself messing with peoples stacks.
