Flavor Flav's restaurant closes

A fried chicken restaurant in Iowa founded by former Flavor of Love star Flavor Flav has abruptly closed its doors after the reality TV star and his business partner cut ties and exchanged harsh words.

Flav's Fried Chicken in Clinton, Iowa, closed on Sunday, just four months after opening to much fanfare.

The former rapper told a US TV station that he was pulling a licence that allowed restaurant manager Nick Cimino to use his name in the restaurant because he "isn't running the business right." Some former employees had complained they were not paid.

Mr Cimino told the station Flav was "a fraud" who was trying to get rich off of his ideas and work.

Flav, a founder of the hip-hop group Public Enemy, opened the business with Mr Cimino in January.
