Flavor Flav’s Chicken in Clinton, Iowa is already experiencing some controversy. The restaurant owner, Flavor Flav, has been accused of bouncing employees’ checks but he denies those claims. (*Super side eye*)

Via Huffington Post: Employees Kelly Butler and Kim Kostka claim that they have been unable to cash checks from three weeks worth of pay, despite trying several banks including Freedom Bank, where the account is held.

Flav, however, denies the claims, stating at the official grand opening party, “It’s not true information first of all and second of all maybe these are people that’s just jealous of me being here and probably want to see me out…Yes, we do have money in our accounts.”

Recently, over a dozen employees were fired, and owner Nick Cimino believes now there are disgruntled employees.

Cimino does admit that there was a “glitch” in the credit card system, that did result in some bounces, however.

While Kosta explained “I can’t pay my rent, can’t pay my bills,” Flav has a different story, “Employees are paid in full.”

Um…if there was a “glitch” in the system that resulted in some bounces then it sounds like the employees are correct.
