Flavor Flav, Chicken and Ribs


You know what time it is? Unfortunately, it's not time for some tasty BBQ from Flavor Flav's restaurants.

The Public Enemy rapper, also known as William J. Drayton, received some devastating news this week that could make his heart melt (and that's coming after three seasons of Flavor of Love).

According to SPIN, Flav's last remaining Flavor Flav's Chicken & Ribs  food joint was evicted from its location in the Detroit suburb of Sterling Heights. The reason? The boss and his business partners weren't paying rent.

The restaurant was first evicted in June, SPIN reports. But a motion of stay was filed in court to temporarily stop the closure from happening, allowing the restaurant to reopen for several weeks.

Unfortunately, when the money continued not to show up, the restaurant was forced to close again, per the music mag.

According to the restaurant's official website, foodies were able to enjoy everything from BBQ ribs to Belgian waffles to buffalo wings. Their main specialty, however, appeared to be their crispy chicken. In fact, "Chicken You Crave, Perfected by Flav" was their motto.

There still is hope for loyal fans, including Ice Cube and LL Cool J, who want to enjoy some greasy, tasty meals from the former reality star.

The restaurant's Facebook page assured its 5,000-plus followers Wednesday afternoon that there will be another opportunity to chow down.

"No worries we are relocating!!! Stay tuned for our official announcement later this evening!!!" Two days later, the new location has yet to be revealed.

Sadly, this isn't the first restaurant from Flav that has experienced some ups and downs. Flav's Fried Chicken in Iowa and House of Flavor in Las Vegas both closed within six months of opening.

Perhaps it's time to face the music and step away from the restaurant business. Best of luck Flav!
