Club One is fighting back. The new club in Charlotte opened by Peter Thomas on The Real Housewives of Atlanta was originally named in a lawsuit back in September 2016 for “allegedly ripping off an investor.” But don’t mess with Cynthia Bailey’s ex because he’s now filing a claim of his own.
As previously reported, the lawsuit was originally filed by Tony G. Taylor claiming that Thomas lied to him about his position as partner and manager in the club in order to secure a $150,000 investment.

On Jan 3, Thomas responded that Taylor was “never offered” those positions and denied “ever stating he was giving Plaintiff a 15% ‘ownership’ interest” in Club One.
“Plaintiff’s role was solely that of a financial investor,” The court papers stated. “Plaintiff received no decision-making authority, nor was he to be an active participant on a day to day basis, whose consent was necessary for any decisions that needed to be made for the Club.”
While Thomas’ attorney was at the courthouse, he filed a counter claim for breach of contract. Turns out, Taylor was in breach when he didn’t use arbitration to first dispute these claims.
In the meantime, Thomas is also busy at the courthouse with back due taxes in the amount of $350,000.
