Flavor Flav - Flavor Flav Pulls Name From Iowa Fried Chicken Restaurant

Hip-hop veteran Flavor Flav is withdrawing his name from his troubled fast food restaurant in Iowa after accusing his business partner of bad management.
The Public Enemy star launched Flav's Fried Chicken in January (11) with Nick Cimino, but the venture hit headlines earlier this month (Apr11) when a number of employees claimed their pay cheques had bounced.
Flavor Flav dismissed the allegations, blaming disgrunted former staff members for spreading false rumours, but now the rapper has pulled out of the business deal altogether.
He tells Tmz.com, "I had a licensing agreement with Nick Cimino and that's all we had. It was his business to run from there and the business was not run right."
And the star reveals the final straw came when he paid a visit to the chicken joint and was disgusted by what he found in the kitchen.
He says, "Let me be straight up with you, I went up inside there on April 2 and I found potato salad that expired on February 28. And it's then when I realised I can't do business with this man and I really hope no one ate those potatoes."
But Flav isn't giving up on the catering business - he's secured a deal to open Flavor Flav's House of Flavor in Las Vegas next month (May11). The venue will feature a restaurant, a bar, a studio and a stage for live performances.
