T.I.

Sued for Stealing Concert Stage

8/15/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TI Sued
T.I. took the stage ... literally.  He rented a stage for his concert tour and treated it like a flower arrangement at a wedding reception dinner table ... in other words, he took it home without paying.

T.I.'s "America's Most Wanted" tour -- a collaboration with T.I. and Lil Wayne -- was big last year.  The centerpiece of the stage was an expensive screen -- known as a roll drop -- used to project video and photos.  

T.I. paid the rental fee but according to a new lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ --  when the concert was over the rapper didn't return the roll drop.

The rental company says its roll drop doesn't come cheap -- $50K.  But the rental company wants twice that, arguing they could have made lots of money renting it out to other performers.

Famous people and their "everything is free for me" attitude. Such dummies.

I'm sure that T.I. didn't steal it. It's not like the performers handle logistics for their tours and they sure aren't assembling and dismantling stages. But he'll be the one to have to cut the check.

T.I. Thought being African American he was owed the screen. He won't pay and say it is because of his race they are picking on T.I. Looks like the company who rented it to T.I. Will be out of money and the cost for a lawyer to try this case. The judge will support the African American artists because IOC his race. Kayne got away with assault and had a joke of community a service duties. The legal system is a joke and favors African American Artists who get away with everything like Kayne and now Chris Brown.
