T.I. will need to dive into his own pockets to pay the unpaid wages of his restaurant employees who lost their jobs when it closed its doors. TI just settled with 9 of 11 employees who went after him after his restaurant shut down in 2016. Each will get a little over 8 grand in unpaid money … totaling about $75,000. T.I. claimed he wasn’t a bad restaurant owner — he says he put a manager in charge who stole money from the business.
