This is not the first time Peter Thomas has been accused of fraud — he has a very shady legal past.
As previously reported, Peter was sued for defrauding an investor/friend of $150,000 in 2016, owes hundreds of thousands in business-related taxes, was once arrested for drug possession and issuing worthless checks, a felony.
Cynthia Bailey split from Peter a few years ago amid rumors the restaurant owner had cheated on her.
Fans saw Peter get married to Cynthia in 2010 on the Bravo reality show’s third season. But their marriage collapsed on camera. The two separated in 2016 and their divorce was finalized in 2017. Cynthia has moved on romantically, marrying Mike Hill in 2020.
Peter has a volatile side as well, he pulled a knife on Kenya Moore’s ex, Matt Jordan, during a radio interview spat. Peter claimed it was self-defense.
Recently, Peter sparked another debate on social media, attacking women.
Peter, posting from his Bar One Miami Beach location, shared a post on his Instagram calling out “fake” women for wanting real men.
The controversial post called out women for having fake butts, hair, nails and friends but in turn wanting “real” men.
Peter shared the post with the caption, “This is funny and real as f**k.”
