Son Calls Gladys Knight Mentally Incompetent
Last month Gladys Knight sued to have her name removed from son Shanga Hankerson's Gladys Knight's Chicken and Waffles restaurant chain and the return of her memorabilia after he was arrested for suspicion of theft and money laundering [click here if you missed that].
Now Shanga is counter suing claiming his mother in mentally incompetent...
According to The Daily Mail Shanga is counter-suing to retain the use of his mother's name, image, memorabilia and recipes insisting they made an oral agreement after their formal licensing deal expired in 2009.
Shanga insists his mother has been paid for her likeness as per their agreement, but also that she 'lacks the mental capacity' to terminate their licensing deal.
The case is ongoing.
