Celebrity Mishaps: Jermaine Dupri’s Restaurant Closes

by Upscale Swagger on August 19, 2008

Jermaine Dupri’s restaurant Cafe Dupri has closed it doors forever last week. Jermaine Dupri’s mother, Tina Mauldin, felt it was a “business decision” to close down the buck head restaurant. Workers weren’t notified about the closing of the restaurant, left confused why it was even closing.

I guess money troubles were the diminishing the business because workers had complained for weeks about bounced checks and bank notices of insufficient funds. Some employees came to work even after utilities were shut off.  When they asked Tina Mauldin why worker’s weren’t receiving their checks here’s what she had to say “maybe if the employees had worked harder, Cafe Dupri would still be open.”

Not a good look JD.
