*Rapper Flavor Flav says he spent thousands of dollars on drugs a day – for six years.

The Public Enemy and reality TV star details the extent of his battle for sobriety in his new memoir “Flavor Flav: Icon.”

“I was spending $2,600 a day, for six years, every single day (on drugs). I don’t know how much that is, but, if you did the math, wow, I went through a lot of money,” he told PopEater. “If I did the math I’d probably be shocked on how much money I spent, I’d probably punch myself in the face.”

Based on his estimate, he would have spent nearly $5.7 million over a six-year period just to fuel his addiction.
