The court closed the case and the rapper didn’t settle.
A lawsuit was filed and in a settlement, the rapper agreed to pay $78,000 in damages. However, later that year he was facing a new lawsuit from the workers, this time with accusations of fraud. In the Fall of 2018, a lawsuit was filed against the rapper alleging that he and his business partners were moving money, $40K to be exact, and hiding the records from creditors. The money was reportedly a settlement that T.I. had with his partners, but the former employees asserted that it was just a clever way for the rapper to keep the money for himself.
Additionally, the workers alleged that T.I. and his partners paid themselves an “unreasonably high” salary while the restaurant was swallowing money and late last year, Scales 925 filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. According to The Blast, T.I. can now rest easy because the fraud case has been dismissed by the court. The case has been closed, and T.I. won’t have to pay any additional funds to the workers.
