Gladys Knight Faces Fresh Chicken & Waffles Drama

Published: Thursday 29th Sep 2016 by David

Gladys Knight’s feud with her son has taken an unsavoury turn for the worst this week.

An update on their ‘Chicken & Waffles’ related drama below…

Last month, Knight filed a lawsuit asking for her name to be removed the Chicken and Waffle restaurant franchise her son, Shanga Hankerson, runs after its alleged tax and financial mismanagement issues reached the light of public day.

Now, Hankerson is said to be determined to block his mother’s plans by claiming that she lacks “the mental capacity” to rescind the licensing deal.

He claims that his mother has been paid for the use of her name on his restaurants and so believes that this makes her attempts to have it sliced out of their branding illegal.

It gets worse.

For, he now wants the legendary vocalist to cover all of the court fees their legal battle has generated.

    Don’t have kids. They are evil! He wouldn’t be where he is with out his mother’s name. That business belongs to her! She allowed you to be a part of it all! Greedy ass child. You made a mistake, your legendary mom shouldn’t have to take the repercussions for your actions. Remove her name! If I was her I would make sure that damn restaurant went out of business.

    There is more to this story. The one whose “mental capacity” should be in question is Gladys’s son and not her. She already won the lawsuit because he did not respond to her lawsuit and let a default victory for Gladys be ruled and put on record. Now he is retaliating. Too late. Karma is a b**** though because now that this nonsense is public no one will eat at those restaurants so it will be another loss for him.
