Flavor Flav is facing legal action from a former business partner who has accused the rapper of cutting him out of a $30,000 (GBP18,750) deal when starting up his fried chicken restaurant.
Tommy Karas claims he found investors for Flavor Flav's Fried Chicken in Las Vegas, Nevada earlier this year and was responsible for handling finances for the venture, which is due to open later this month.
Karas alleges the Public Enemy star found backers to make a $30,000 (GBP18,750) investment in the fast food joint, pushing Karas out of the deal.
According to TMZ.com, Karas has consulted his lawyers over the matter after Las Vegas Metro Police Department officials allegedly decided not to pursue the report he filed because "it's a civil matter".
Flavor Flav's fast food franchise hit the headlines last month after he withdrew his name from the Iowa branch, accusing another business partner, Nick Cimino, of bad management.
