FLAVOR FLAV NOT PAYING CHICKEN WORKERS

Posted on April 4, 2011


Flavor Flav is quickly becoming Public Enemy #1 among employees at his new fried chicken joint in Iowa.

Workers at Flavor Flav’s Chicken in Clinton, Iowa, are claiming that his paychecks are bouncing.

Both Kelly Butler and Kim Kostka told Iowa’s WQAD television that the restaurant’s owner, Nick Cimino, owes them three weeks of pay after banks refused to accept their pay checks.

“My check was only $150 and they couldn’t even cash it,” Butler told the station.

Butler also said she was turned down at several banks before finally taking her case to Freedom bank, which holds the restaurant’s account.

But even they wouldn’t accept Flav’s check. Instead, they gave her a letter saying the funds weren’t available, she told the station.

Flavor Flav, whose real name is William Drayton Jr., told WQAD that the disgruntled workers were haters.

“It’s not true information first of all, and second of all maybe these are people that’s just jealous of me being here and probably want to see me out,” the “Flavor of Love” star said.

“Yes, we do have money in our accounts,” he added.

Cimino admitted to having a “glitch” with the restaurant’s credit cards, but said the employees claims were attempts at revenge for being fired.

“Employees are going to say whatever they need to say, especially after you fire them” Cimino said.

Several other employees who did not want to be named also came forward and said their checks had bounced, WQAD said.

Flavor Flav’s Chicken, or FFC, opened in January.
