T.I. Slapped With $100,000 Lawsuit for Taking Stage Equipment
Rapper T.I. is being accused of having sticky hands. The Atlanta rhymer is being sued by a rental company for allegedly stealing stage equipment.
According to TMZ, Tip paid a rental fee to have an expensive video screen, called a roll drop, behind him onstage during the 2013 America’s Most Wanted Tour with Lil Wayne.
However, after the tour was over, the rental company claims that T.I. never returned the equipment. Now they want it back with penalty fees.
The rental company says the equipment cost $50,000, but they are seeking double the amount — $100,000 — because they could have earned money by renting it out to other performers.
T.I.’s attorney had no comment on the matter.
