Peter Thomas calls himself a businessman, but according to one of his former employees, his only business is shady.
A person who worked at Peter's Charlotte, North Carolina bar Club One spilled all kinds of tea on the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, from claiming he forced everyone to work during the Charlotte protests (following the death of Keith Lamont Scott) to saying he fired said employee simply for demanding to get paid. But that's not the worst of it. Cynthia Bailey, if you're reading this, brace yourself...
According to an anonymous source who wrote in to The Shade Room, Thomas "claims he’s rich but can’t even pay his employees and when I questioned him about it, I ended up without a job."
The source continues, "He swears he’s the King of Charlotte but while the protest was going on Peter was nowhere to be seen. He actually threatened everyone’s job at #ClubOne that if we closed down due to the mandatory curfew that we would all be out of a job." The anonymous tea-spiller went on to say that Peter owes money all over Charlotte, and that he even kept Diddy waiting for an hour to get paid for an appearance at his club following the Bad Boy Reunion Tour — and then stiffed his own employees because he blew all his cash on Puff.
But that's not the juiciest part. According to the former staffer, who signed the letter Disgruntled Former Employee, "It’s no secret that Peter has been trying to rekindle his romance with Cynthia but she might want to tread lightly because he’s been smashing his general manager at SportsOne, I guess he still needs some of Cynthia’s money."
