Gladys Knight Accuses Son of Blackmail
Earlier this week news leaked that Gladys Knight's son, Shanga Hankerson, was suing his mom to retain the use of her name on his Gladys Knight's Chicken and Waffles restaurant chain calling his mom 'mentally incapable' of terminating their agreement [click here if you missed that].
Now Gladys Knight is accusing her son of blackmailing her...
According to reports after Gladys Knight sued to have her name removed from the restaurant chain following Shanga's arrest for theft and money laundering [click here if you missed that], Shanga threatened to reveal his mother's Alzheimer's diagnosis unless she withdrew her suit.
In new legal docs filed by the soul singer Gladys Knight denies having the disease and accuses her son of trying to "embarrass and harass" her.
The case is ongoing.
