T.I.'s jeweler sues him

Rap tycoon T.I.'s jeweler is suing him for $700,000 for jewels he reportedly forgot to pay for.

The jeweler, Aydin & Co, of Atlanta, says they delivered an 18.5 karat white gold bracelet, a ring and yellow gold rosary to T.I. who paid down $20,000 toward the purchase in 2014. The jewels were Christmas gifts for his wife, Tameka "Tiny" Harris.

According to documents obtained by gossip tabloid TMZ, T.I. never paid the $44,000 he still owes.

This isn't the first time Aydin & Co. has threatened legal action against T.I.

Jewelers are notorious for filing frivolous lawsuits to force rappers to pay up.

The lawsuits are then withdrawn and the rappers continue doing business with the same jewelers who allow them to purchase jewels with little to no money down and easy payments.

TMZ -- That's just the tip of the iceberg. According to the lawsuit, during the decade T.I. was one of its shoppers, he stiffed them out of more than $400k. All tolled, Aydin's gunning for T.I. to the tune of $700k.

T.I. says the lawsuit is BS.

    Question: If the rapper does in fact owe the Jewelers money, are the lawsuits frivolous? Because how long has it been since people have paid the bill?

    Yet, they continued to do business with him? Yea, okay!

    That's just like a friend not repaying the $250 they borrowed
    Christmas 2014, then Christmas 2015 have the audacity to ask to borrow
    more.

  • Mz.Capricorn

    @Summer. He coulda took his ass to Jared's. Lol.

  • SummerBaby

    Exactly! I would have a few real pieces, but that is absurd to me especially when my azz is juggling bills & college tuition for my kids. I need a 2nd job right now & that's real talk. ?

  • TheRealLee

    Good point, why continue to do business with him.

  • SummerBaby

    Has anyone heard of Aydin & Co, of Atlanta and do you like the work they've done here. The problem with these celebs is that they think they are entitled to these items as promotional 'freebies.' So and so is eating at XYZ Restaurant. They put this info on their insta-social media as plug for the place then try to walk out without paying the bill. Same for jewelry, clubs, stores. They created this monster themselves.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Sounds like T.I. tried to pull a Lindsay Lohan hahaha pay up!

  • 88

    Easy Celebs have tabs the fact that T.I. continued to come back was probably enough assurance to the guy that he would eventually pay up.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Haha. Brier Creek can be messy.
