Rapper Flavor Flav's fast food diner has been forced to close its doors due to financial problems. Flavor Flav's Chicken & Ribs restaurant in Sterling Heights, Michigan was hit with an eviction notice earlier this month (13) after the building's landlord filed a lawsuit against the Public Enemy star, claiming he was owed more than $20,000 (GBP12,903) in back rent. The 52 year old, real name William Drayton, Jr., vowed to find a solution to save the eatery, but on Thursday (20Jun13) police arrived to shut down the establishment, clear out the staff and change the locks, according to TMZ.com. The news is the latest blow for the troubled reality star - he is facing a trial in September (13) over an alleged attack on his girlfriend's teenage son last year (12).
