Gladys Knight Sues Over Chicken and Waffles Debacle


Back in June all three Gladys Knight's Chicken and Waffles restaurants in Atlanta were raided and shut down and the owner, Gladys Knight's son Shanga Hankerson, was arrested and is under investigation for tax evasion and money laundering [click here if you missed that].

 Gladys is cutting ties with the restaurant and wants her name back...

According to reports Gladys Knight no longer wants her name or image associated with the restaurant and wants all her memorabilia back.

Gladys Knight made a deal with Shango to use her name and image back in 99, but now the restaurant is being run by a state appointed receiver and Gladys wants out.

She is suing to have her name removed from the signs and the return of her music career memorabilia.

She looks like a dried up chicken herself.

Don't disrespect one of our legends @8:17. This woman can still out-blow most of today's singers.

So sad when a parent has to sue their child. And vice versa.

@8:25 That's probably Shango right there, tsk tsk.

To the 817: Gladys Knight is a living legend and a national treasure. She should be respected at all times.

If this restaurant is being run by a state appointed "receiver" this is just another attempt of THEM trying to cash in on our legends. I will send positive vibes her way, because THEY just might decide to "throw her from the freedom train" rather than fight in court and have to release gladys' name, likeness and memorabilia back to her.

THEY believe these artists are "worth make dead than alive" anyway. Just look at all the deaths this year - and it's not over yet.

Say a protection prayer for Gladys y'all. And I'm dead serious.
