A general contractor has reportedly filed a lawsuit against Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker for failing to pay him for $16,512 in work he did last year on their new restaurant, Old Lady Gang.
The restaurant opened in March, and Burruss has said in interviews that it’s doing very well, despite reports that it received a ‘C’ from the Georgia Department of Public Health.
“Our score is an A. Yes, it was a C for like three days, but for minor things like someone in the kitchen didn’t have their hair net on — or we ran out of paper towels by the sink. We immediately corrected those things and our score returned to an A,” she told B. Scott.
Adding, “My thing is this — I can’t believe the one thing people choose to overlook is the fact that our score IS an A.”
“We love our customers. We do whatever we can to make sure they have an amazing experience. When it comes to cleanliness, we’re more than on top of things. The only complaint I’ve ever received from customers about OLG is the fact there’s a long ass wait!”
According to reports, Charles Busbee filed a lawsuit against the RHOA stars on September 25 in Fulton County Superior Court. In the lawsuit, he claims he did work at the eatery between March 19 and June 27, 2016, and that Burruss and Tucker’s architect and third defendant, Cedric Drayton, wrote him checks totaling $16,512 but then refused to pay up. He said he was forced to pay his crew out of his own pocket, per AJC Radio & TV Talk blog.
Busbee had previously filed a lawsuit trying to get his money. On September 26, 2016, the two parties appeared in court and Drayton admitted to not paying and agreed to restitution payments over a year. But to date, Busbee has not received payment.
He is demanding his money plus interest. For now, he is claiming a lien on the Atlanta establishment.
