*We don’t know why he did it, if he did it, but T.I. is being accused of taking the stage … literally. Yes, taking the stage … HOME.

It seems the so-called “King of the South” rented a stage for his concert tour and ended up taking it home and not paying for it according to TMZ.

T.I.’s “America’s Most Wanted” tour — a collaboration with T.I. and Lil Wayne — was big last year. The centerpiece of the stage was an expensive screen — known as a roll drop — used to project video and photos.

T.I. paid the rental fee but according to a new lawsuit — obtained by TMZ — when the concert was over the rapper didn’t return the roll drop.

The rental company says its roll drop costs $50K. But they are insisting on twice that amount saying that they could’ve made more money renting it out to somebody else … if they had it back in their possession.
