T.I. files for bankruptcy over his failed Atlanta Scales 925 restaurant.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Scales 925 Atlanta filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Georgia on May 1. The case was filed by T.I.’s business partner, Charles Hughes, on behalf of the company.
The reason for the bankruptcy is due to pending lawsuits filed by former employees who allege they weren’t paid properly.
T.I., his business partners, and the company have been hit with multiple lawsuits by former employees who allege they weren’t paid properly including wages, overtime and some claimed to have been asked to work without pay.
The restaurant had opened in 2015 but closed the following year following several issues, including being sued for eviction.
