Public Enemy's Flavor Flav caught the wrong end of his daughter this past weekend with reports claiming he was involved in a Las Vegas family brawl which resulted in an arrest.
A mug shot of Flav's 19 year-old daughter has also hit the Internet.
TMZ has obtained Flavor Flav's daughter's mug shot ... taken moments after the 19-year-old was arrested for battery stemming from an altercation at the rapper's Las Vegas home. As we first reported, cops arrested Dazayna Drayton early Sunday morning following a family spat. Sources tell TMZ ... Flav tried to break it up and got hit by his daughter for his troubles. It's unclear whether it was on purpose or by accident. Law enforcement tells us ... Drayton has since been released from custody. (TMZ)
Last year, Flavor Flav's former Iowa fried chicken restaurant partner Nick Cimino cited the rapper for questionable business practices.
"I started this," Cimino said. "I put together everything from the menu to the color of the building to the sign. I did everything. What Flav's doing, he's a fraud. He doesn't want to be hurt with the other ventures he's doing and he wants to become a millionaire off my dime, off my ideas...I came up with the idea and now he wants to run without me? That's fine, but people got to know it wasn't Flavor Flav's idea." (Baltimore Sun)
In late April, Flav said the restaurant's mismanagement forced him to part ways.
"Let me be straight up with you, I went inside there on April 2 and I found potato salad that expired on February 28," Flav told gossip site TMZ. "And it's then when I realized I can't do business with this man and I really hope no one ate those potatoes." The restaurant, which opened next to a KFC in January, has had problems greater than spoiled potato salad. (New York Daily News)
Outside of family woes and fast food restaurants, Flav has made a name for himself on the small screen.
Now back on top, the rapper released his debut solo album, Flavor Flav, in 2006 and suffered the jabs of Katt Williams, Patton Oswalt, Lisa Lampanelli and others when "The ComedyCentral Roast of Flavor Flav" aired in 2007. A year later he became a featured actor on the myNetworkTV sitcom "Under One Roof." (All Music)
