No Money, More Problems: Flavor Flav’s Chicken & Ribs Facing Eviction
Now that his popular reality show, Flavor of Love, is nothing more than a distant memory, former Public Enemy hype man, Flavor Flav has been putting his entrepreneurial skills to work, opening three Flavor Flav’s Chicken & Ribs restaurants in Iowa, Las Vegas and Michigan. While opening the food chain seemed like a great look for Flav, something went terribly wrong because both his Las Vegas and his Iowa locations have been closed within the last three years. Now, it appears that his Michigan location may be shutting down soon as well.
According to TMZ, the landlord of the Sterling Heights, MI restaurant has filed eviction papers against the reality star’s food franchise, claiming that rent hasn’t been paid in full by the restaurant’s owner’s since it opened back in 2012. Court documents reveal that the landlord is asking for $25,000 in unpaid rent, late fees and damages or Flav has to get his chicken, ribs and get to stepping. The landlord says that back in September and October, FFC&R were late with their $3,500 per month rent payments and failed to pay anything for the month of November.
The landlord is also claiming that he warned Flav about his failure to make payment back in January and now he’s hoping that a judge will honor his decision to evict Flav if in fact he’s unable to cough up the owed amount. TMZ reached out to Flav regarding the situation and surprisingly, he claims that he didn’t know anything about it.
“I’m gonna figure out what’s going on and get to the bottom of this ASAP!”
Yike Flave! Maybe that money he’s getting from appearing on VH1’s Couple’s Therapy could help him save his restaurant.
