RAPPER T.I.'s mother faces losing her home after she allegedly refused to pay contractors who removed black mold from the property.
Violeta Morgan has been threatened with foreclosure after mold removal service BioRestore accused her of failing to settle the $60k bill.
T.I., who admitted last November that he took his daughter to the doctor every year to have her hymen tested and her virginity confirmed, has been named in legal documents.
The star, 39, owns the five-bedroom $616,000 home in Atlanta, Georgia, where Violeta lives.
A source claimed that Violeta was a nightmare client and acted as though “she was the Queen of England”.
They said that seven workmen toiled for over six weeks to clear the house of black mold.
T.I.'s mother's attitude was so nasty…. she's always looking to say something happened so that she couldn't pay
The workmen were reportedly shocked by the state of the property when they carried out an inspection last June.
They said: "It was disgusting. There was black mold oozing out of the AC ducts, black mold on the floorboards and the carpets were covered in it."
The fungus has been linked to respiratory problems.
The source continued: "The house was absolutely inhabitable. Mold is sporous and it gets into the air. If it is in the AC ducts, it will spray all over the place."
BioRestore gave Violeta a $60,000 estimate and she agreed to the work. But when it came time for the first half of the payment, she started complaining.
The source added the company was not alarmed because Violeta's rapper son is rumored to be worth $50 million, adding, @the company was adamant about it being T.I.
The source also critizised Violeta's behavior, claiming she acted as though she were "the Queen of England".
They said: "T.I.'s mother's attitude was so nasty. She's always looking to say something happened so that she couldn't pay."
They claimed she wrongly accused them of damaging her car door.
'SHE'D HAVE LITTLE FITS'
The source added T.I. reportedly became involved in disputes between Violeta and the workmen.
They said: "She would get him on a three-way call.
She would go through her little fits.
"He was cool. He didn't say much."
But when the work was complete Violeta refused to pay the $59,816 bill.
The source said: "She said: 'No, I'm going to refuse to pay this. 'You didn't do the job, you have to go through the insurance company.'"
The source added Violeta claimed workmen broke one of her possessions and gave this as the reason she would not pay for the mold removal.
They said: "It was something that was worth like $200. It was irrelevant."
The mold removal service is attempting to collect the money for the six-week job from T.I. by filing a lien against the property his mother lives in which is owned by him.
The source said: “Her behavior was grimy.
“She had us contracted and she thought because her son was T.I., she had leverage on how she acted.
“She acts like: ‘My son is T.I., who the hell are you?’.”
The Sun has contacted TI and his mom for comment.
