Scandalous: Jermaine Dupri Shuts The Doors On Cafe Dupri And Workers Are Claiming They Were NOT Paid!

Jermaine Dupri reportedly shut down his Atlanta restaurant Cafe Dupri last week and his employees claim that they haven’t been paid for weeks because of faulty checks.

According to WSB-TV, the restaurant’s employees claim that prior to the business shutting down they had been receiving bounced checks and no action was taken to get them fully compensated.

“Just about everybody in the restaurant got checks that were no good” said former bartender Amy Fosse. “Every time I go to the bank, they say ‘Maybe come back tomorrow, there is nothing here’”.

“It's a mess,” added Lakeisha Ross, a former cook.

The workers claim they were not notified of the restaurant’s closure and only found out after coming to work to find a post on the doors saying the eatery was "closed indefinitely".

Dupri’s mother, Tina Mauldin, who serves as CEO for the restaurant, claims that all the workers have been paid and the restaurant’s closure was a “business decision”.

Mauldin would take a swipe at her former employees saying that if they had worked harder, the restaurant would still be open.
