Flavor Flav

Pulling the Plug

on Chicken Joint

4/24/2011 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Flavor Flav is pulling his name from Flavor Flav's Chicken in Clinton, IA -- saying his business partner "mismanaged" the place and the whole ordeal gave him "a bad reputation."

Flav tells TMZ he had his attorney pull the license yesterday. He tells us, "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."

As we previously reported, employees were claiming their payroll checks were bouncing, which Cimino blamed on "a credit card glitch."

Flav also said the food was a problem too, telling us, "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 realized I can't do business with this man and I really hope no one ate those potatoes." Us too.

The experience couldn't have been all bad -- Flav is set to open up "Flavor Flav's House of Flavor" in Las Vegas next month.

It this guy for real, he has business and he not there to see if his partiner is not stealing from him. The clock that he has around his neck must have stopped. or his phone isn't working. When in doubt when the business goes south blame the partner and the business manager, but not yourself. What I don't understand is why this moron wears a clock around his neck, he must want to see time fly. This guy is a FU lister, that's the reason no one pays any attention to this moron.

Dang;

Week old potato salad?

I wonder how the chicken tasted?

was it broasted, deep fried or slow cooked.

You know if Flavor Flav's name is attached to a chicken wang it's got to be good...

Good news for the people of Clinton Iowa that the Flav pulled the plug on a tasteless chicken joint...

Now if he had done it Roscoe's style the Flav would be rolling in greens...

i ate at his restaurant. i was very mismanaged, when i went there you were supposed to get either corn bread or a roll with your meal, They had neither of those. the chicken was good.

i met Flav a couple weeks before i went down to FFC. He's a really cool guy.

"....and I really hope no one at those potatoes."
Well I am guessing that if Flav didn't pull those potatoes, somebody at those potatoes. Brother.
