Flavor Flav’s last standing chicken restaurant in Detroit was recently shut down due to the rapper allegedly never paying up rent on the greasy grub joint. But Flav wants everyone to know that the media is getting his famous Flavor Flav’s Chicken & Ribs Detroit location confused with prior restaurants owned by the hip hop star.
The official Facebook page for the restaurant confirmed on Sunday night that the eatery is only moving locations, and that reports of Flav’s Detroit joint being shut down due to not paying rent is not true, but rather, those reports are true about his prior restaurants which have been shut down.
“No worries we are relocating!!!” The FB page reads, “You should all know we are not connected with any of Flav’s Restaurants besides for FFCR!!” The statement continues to reveal that all this info regarding not paying rent is from Flav’s prior restaurants, and that the Detroit location is in a “Landlord-Tenant case that will be resolved soon,” adding that, “For you loyal customers and supporters we will be building a new store. We believe in our new concept we created for FLAV”s and will stick to it. Stay Tuned as we release more info this week. Thanks for the support!!”
Flavor Flav, real name William Drayton is just one of the owners of the restaurant, along with his business partner, Gino Harmon of Forza Development.
RumorFix has calls out to the rap star turned restaurateur himself, and we are expecting a call back shortly.
We hope Flav can pull it together and bring back that delicious comfort food fast!
