*Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas of TLC has filed a lawsuit against Atlanta Highline Consulting LLC, a car and truck brokerage firm owned by Joshua William Waddell, demanding the return of $27,500 she said she paid for a Cadillac Escalade EXT that was never delivered.
Court documents filed on Sept. 8 and obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, reveal Chilli wired Waddell $10,000 on Oct. 10, 2014 and $17,500 on Oct. 23, 2014 for a total of $27,500, but the vehicle was never delivered.
