Cynthia Bailey Files $170K Lawsuit Against Ex-Husband Peter Thomas!

Cynthia Bailey is reportedly suing her ex-husband Peter Thomas over money allegedly he owes her.

The lawsuit is related to their joint business venture, Bar One Atlanta. According to new court records obtained by blogger Michelle 'ATLien' Brown, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star filed a lawsuit against Thomas for $170,000 for what she contributed for the building. 

Bailey’s name is apparently on the deed of the building, which is now in foreclosure, and Peter is not set to pay the money until January 2021.

“I’ve known about this situation quite some time, I didn’t know if Cynthia was gonna use it for a storyline, I didn’t know what was gonna happen,” Michelle said on her YouTube channel, according to a report by Reality Blurb. “But apparently […] this particular lawsuit was filed prior to her marrying Mike Hill. It was actually filed on September 22, 2020.”

The blogger went on to explain how her sources told her that Thomas was “fighting” the lawsuit since the “money in question is not actually owed until January 30, 2021.” She also revealed why she believes Cynthia might be filing before the payments deadline.

“I suspect that Cynthia Bailey may have filed it in September to file a few months early because courts take time. Of course she didn’t wanna file it in January because he owed it in January, maybe she felt if she filed in September, by January they go to court and by January she [gets] paid … I don’t know,” she stated. “But I also suspect that she is using this for a storyline. We all know that Cynthia is a tad bit boring, we all know that Cynthia’s entire storyline was Mike Hill and their wedding, and we also know that Bravo had refused to film their wedding. So what, pray tell, would prompt her to file a lawsuit on funds that aren’t necessarily due?”

If you recall, Peter’s Bar One venture was adjacent to Cynthia’s modeling agency, but Cynthia had to switch locations due to the building being in foreclosure. Peter shared the news to Cynthia on the Bravo hit reality series, claiming that he had been making regular rent payments to the landlord but the landlord failed to make sufficient payments to the bank for the property’s mortgage, according to a report by Reality Blurb.

Apparently, Thomas tried to work out a deal with the bank, showing his rent payments made to the landlord, but the bank went ahead in their decision to foreclose on the property. Peter promised to open a new Bar One venture in another area of Atlanta, for which Cynthia allegedly loaned money to help purchase the new building.

“[Regarding Peter] we actually have unfinished business,” Cynthia told ESSENCE in 2017. “I’m his partner at Bar One Atlanta. We’re building it out now. This was a project that we started while we were together, and we kind of put it on hold while we were kind of not liking each other so much.”
