On the heels of his separation from wife of six years Cynthia Bailey, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Peter Thomas has landed in some serious legal trouble, RadarOnline.com can reveal.
According to North Carolina Superior Court documents obtained exclusively by Radar, Atlanta-based investor Tony G. Taylor claims club owner Thomas, 55, made false statements in order to coax him into investing $150,000 into new Charlotte hot spot Club One.
Thomas allegedly lied when he claimed he had personally invested up to $3 million into the nightclub, and had set up filming opportunities with RHOA and a possible Bravo spinoff titled What's Peter Doing Now.
The reality star also was accused of promising Taylor a 15% ownership in the club.
"The aforementioned alleged representations by made by Thomas…were reasonably calculated to deceive the Plaintiff," the September 8 complaint filing states.
Taylor sued the reality star for counts of fraudulent inducement, unjust enrichment, constructive fraud and obtaining property by false pretense.
He seeks compensatory damages of more than $10,000, in addition to punitive damages and attorney's fees.
Thomas has not yet responded to the allegations in court.
As Radar reported, the estranged husband of Bailey, 48, was previously under fire when a man accused the entrepreneur of assaulting him in his other Charlotte bar, Sports One, last winter.
Though he faced criminal charges, the case was ultimately dismissed.
