Flavor Flav's

Fried Chicken Empire

Is Thiiiis Close to Death

EXCLUSIVE

0612-flavor-flav-chicken-ribs-tmzFlavor Flav's run as a fast food mogul could be over in a matter of weeks ... because the last of his fried chicken joints has been hit with eviction papers ... TMZ has learned.

Flavor Flav's Chicken & Ribs in Sterling Heights, MI has been accused of stiffing its landlord out of rent since the day it opened back in December 2012.

FYI -- FFC&R is the last of 3 fried chicken joints Flav has tried to open in the past few years ... one sputtered out in Iowa in 2011 and the other one died a slow painful death in Vegas in 2012.

Now, according to court docs obtained by TMZ, the Michigan location is also on the ropes ... unless it finds a way to come up with $25,000 (missing rent + late fees + damages).

The papers show ... FFC&R was late in making its monthly $3,500 monthly rent payment back in Sept and October -- and stopped paying altogether in November.

The landlord warned Flav's restaurant about the problem back in January ... and just a few weeks ago, went back to the court in hopes a judge will kick Flav to the curb, stat.
 
We called Flav about the crisis ... and he told us he had no idea the restaurant was in trouble. But the rapper insists, "I'm gonna figure out what's going on and get to the bottom of this ASAP!"

The giant clock's tickin' ...

Even though he’s only leasing out his name for these joints, he’s a complete fool not to oversee them. What ever they do under his brand reflects on him.

he should try advertising in predominantly afrikan american communities. his marketing strategy of "chikn n ribs 4 wites only" seems misguided and counterintuitive.

What the hell - Iowa, Michigan, Nevada? If he wanted this business to succeed, he should have opened it in Atlanta.

Here is his franchise recipe.
Go to local grocery store and buy fried chicken pre-maade. They will ask you for about $4. Give them $10. Take the chicken home,dip it into lard,and enjoy!!
Greasy,over priced crap.

I live right down the street from this place. my husband and I were just saying how this place is not going to last. Super expensive for not very good food. The place was booming the first week and now its empty. There used to be a wendys where flava flavs is. They should bring it back. Better food and much cheaper!
