Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles has shut down just weeks after the legendary singer removed her name from the brand. According to The Shade Room,
Gladys Knight was previously involved in a legal dispute with her son, Shanga Hankerson, who was using her name and likeness to promote his three restaurants. Knight has since settled the dispute and according to the restaurant’s general manager, the eatery has a new name, signs and logos. However, the site reports that despite the restaurant’s rebranding, they were shut down as of Thursday (February 23rd) over sales tax. The Georgia Department of Revenue shut the business down over taxes that Hankerson has yet to pay off.
Dang. She can’t catch a break when it comes to this restaurant. SMH
