Who is surprised that Peter Thomas has made the Charlotte news for his shady business dealings? Anyone? Anyone? I see no hands. I’ve been asked a couple of times what I think about his latest mess, and it just sounds like the usual shell game he likes to play to me. What I wonder is what if anything the FEDs think about it. Apollo’s arrest and Peter’s possession of some of Apollo’s assets have put him on their radar. I’m not sure this is big enough for them to get involved just yet, but you never know.
Peter is pushing an after party at Club One next week for the Bad Boy Reunion Tour. His flyers have Puff Daddy and all the performers on them and it is strongly implied they will be in Club One. #Sketchy. I don’t see Puff Daddy rolling up in Club One, but we shall see.
But first, click through for a list of the most hilarious components of the newest lawsuit against Peter. Let me know which one made you laugh the hardest.
Here are TEN HILARIOUS FACTS from a recent lawsuit filed in Charlotte against Peter Thomas by an “Atlanta investor,” Tony Taylor who is suing over an investment in his latest club , Club1.
- Peter valued his newest Club at ONE MILLION DOLLARS before the doors even opened.
- Peter claim he had invested “Between 2 and 3 million dollars of his own money in the club”
- Peter held himself out as some central character on the current season of RHOA and promised there would be multiple segments on the season filmed at Club 1.
- Peter said he was getting his own show called, What’s Peter Doing Now? that would be all about him and his clubs in Charlotte so they would never need to pay for advertising.
- Tony would need to manage the club (From Atlanta?) because Peter is “required to travel extensively.”
- Peter “allowed” the future investor to host a CIAA party, featuring R&B singer Carl Thomas, for a loan of $50,000 to cover event costs. In exchange, Taylor would be able to keep the money from cover charges and 20 percent of bar sales. Peter paid back the loan, presumably from money he made on the event, plus $10,000, and an additional $4,000 for the bar sales.
- After initially seeking an investment of $300,000 for 30% of the company, Tony agrees to $150,000 for 15%.
- There is no mention of a written contract.
- Tony appears to have simply wired Peter $150,000
- Tony is suing Peter for fraudulent inducement, securities fraud, unjust enrichment, constructive fraud, obtaining property by false pretense and “violation of punitive damages. “
While all of these items collectively are pretty damn funny, I have to say that the one about Peter having a show called What’s Peter Doing Now? is my favorite. Because the ending with Peter happily reuniting with Apollo in prison just sort of writes itself, doesn’t it?
