Report: Kandi Burruss And Todd Tucker Accused Of Shafting Restaurant Workers Out Of $22K!

Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker are being accused of screwing over builders who worked on their upcoming Southern cuisine restaurant - to the tune of $22,000. A carpenter and an air conditioning contractor have accused the Real Housewives of Atlanta couple of allegedly blowing off their invoices, and even being indirectly responsible for giving him fraudulent checks.

According to court documents obtain by The Daily Mail, the two workers have not been paid for construction done on the Old Lady Gang eatery - which is not yet up and running, despite being meant to open in February.

The court documents show that the reality stars have been hit with one lien for $16,512 by a carpenter named Charles Busbee. He was supposed to be paid by June 30 but says has not yet received any money.

Busbee claims the general contractor hired by the couple to manage the renovation of their new restaurant issued fraudulent checks. Writing fraudulent checks is a felony in Georgia and Busbee is demanding he be paid immediately or he will have to take further action.

In the court filings, an angry Busbee said it became apparent after work began that he would be providing much more to the project than planned, and would have to be the onsite foreman for the entire job - notwithstanding any pay adjustments to compensate for the additional work.

By June 27 he had had enough and pulled himself and his workers from the project - and only then did he discover the checks were fraudulent, reports the publication.

"I have spoken with you on numerous occasions since you wrote the three (3) checks, and I have received only empty promises to match my empty pockets," Busbee wrote to the GC.

A second worker, an HVAC contractor named Tyrone Manuel, says he provided a three-tonne system inside the kitchen area and a five-tonne one in the lobby area, plus other materials. He says he is owed $5,366 and was meant to be paid by the end of August. The grand total for both liens comes to $21,878.
