Peter gave an interview to Access Atlanta, denying all of it. Peter says it's a huge misunderstanding and he has definitely been paying his rent. Peter claims that the "primary" landlord, Showtime Cafe, has been taking his rent but not paying it on the property's mortgage and now it's in foreclosure. The property was reportedly auctioned off in October. Peter claims that last March he started putting his rent in escrow with his attorney until the landlord could get the foreclosure situation figured out.
Peter tells AA "I’ve been caught in the middle of the crossfire. I don’t owe them anything. ” He also claims that the landlord has tried to kick him out twice and says that he did more than $120,000 in improvements to the space.
The landlord's attorney told AA that they're hoping to get in front of a judge ASAP so they can boot Peter to the curb and they're planning to lease both properties as soon as possible.
