Peter's Brew - Jamaican Gourmet Coffee - Launch Party
Peter Thomas may have just opened his next business venture, Club One, but that hasn’t stopped investors from coming after the reality star.
RadarOnline.com reports Atlanta-based entrepreneur Tony Taylor filed a lawsuit in September, that claimed Cynthia Bailey‘s ex told lies about the new business in order to convince his friend to invest $150,000 and become a partner and manager.
Peter, whose last business endeavor, Bar One, was closed after his partner allegedly stopped paying the rent, didn’t take Tony’s claims lightly. The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star recently responded to his investor’s claims in court documents, alleging that Tony was never offered a partnership or managerial role in the club.
“Tony’s role was solely that of a financial investor,” Peter’s lawyers wrote in the North Carolina Mecklenburg District Court documents obtained exclusively by Radar. “Tony received no decision-making authority, nor was he to be an active participant on a day to day basis, whose consent was necessary for any decisions that needed to be made for the Club.”
Peter didn’t stop there; he also filed a counterclaim that alleged Tony breached his contract by initiating legal action when his contract stated he must use mediation for any disputes.
Peter doesn’t only have to worry about his current legal battle. As of Sep. 2016, Radar reported that the reality star owed $350,000 in taxes.
