Gladys Knight Legally Cuts Ties With Son’s Chicken & Waffle Restaurant #ICYMI

Published: Thursday 9th Mar 2017 by Rashad

A number of legal and financial woes led to Empress of Soul Gladys Knight’s bid to make a royal exit from the famous chicken and waffle restaurant that bore her name.

Operated by her son, 40-year-old  Shanga Hankerson, the embattled establishment has faced tax and health inspection drama over the past year.  By late 2016, the ‘Love Overboard’ belter asked for an intervention by the courts to help save her from the reputational harm being caused by the food franchise.

Well, fresh reports have indicated they’ve come to the rescue:


Gladys Knight recently won her bid to end all personal connections to her son’s struggling chicken and waffles restaurant, according to a settlement filed in Georgia’s Clayton County court.

The agreement, signed Monday, states that 40-year-old Shanga Hankerson must remove all uses of Knight’s name, likeness and memorabilia from the restaurant formerly called Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles by April 26, 2017, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. [Source]
