Gladys Knight is done with foolishness and the legendary singer has taken legal action to wash her hands of her son’s shady restaurant shenanigans.
According to TMZ, Gladys has filed a lawsuit against her son to have her name and likeness removed from their chicken and waffle restaurants.
Gladys wants the person now running the restaurants previously managed by her son, Shanga Hankerson, to 86 her from signs and promotions for the chicken and waffle joints.
Gladys says she gave the green light to use her name and image for the restaurants back in ’99, but put the kibosh on the deal a few months ago after the eateries were raided by the Georgia Department of Revenue. Her son was arrested for allegedly pocketing a million bucks.
And one more thing … in addition to money and an injunction, Gladys wants all her memorabilia adorning the restaurants returned to her.
Sometimes doing business with family can be the worst mistake you’ll ever make.
