Flavor Flav made big headlines earlier this year when he and a guy named Nick Cimino opened up “Flav’s Fried Chicken” in Clinton, Iowa. Now, just months later, the restaurant is being closed over mismanagement … and old potato salad.

“I had a licensing agreement with Nick Cimino and that’s all we had. It was his business to run from there and the business was not run right,” Flav told TMZ over the weekend.

Just a couple of weeks back, it was reported that employees were claiming that their paychecks were bouncing, which Cimino later blamed on a “credit card glitch.”

But when Flavor Flav found month-old potato salad in the kitchen, that was the last straw. “Let me be straight up with you, I went up inside there on April 2 and I found potato salad that expired on February 28,” Flav said. “And it’s then when I realized I can’t do business with this man and I really hope no one ate those potatoes.”

Month old potato salad? Gross!
