Flavor Flav's Fried Chicken Joint Closes
Flavor Flav's no Colonel Sanders, it turns out. In January, the clock-wearing, Brigitte Nielsen-dating rapper opened Flav's Fried Chicken in (where else?) Clinton, Iowa. It was planned as the first outpost of an empire, but a mere three months after its opening, Flav's Fried Chicken is closing its doors.
According to the Associated Press, Flav's got a beef (ahem...) with the restaurant's manager, Nick Cimino, and tells WQAD-TV that he's pulling a license because Cimino "isn't running the business right."
Some former employees had complained they were not paid.
Cimino told the station Flav was "a fraud" who was trying to get rich off of his ideas and work.
