*Before Flavor Flav could get a few months into his business, a lawsuit has been filed against his now closed chicken shack in Iowa.

A food distribution company filed the suit, claiming his ex-business partner Nicolo Cimino owes more than $12,000 for past food shipments.

Flav’s Fried Chicken restaurant opened in January, but closed promptly in April after some funny business, bounced payroll checks and other strange happenings.
