One of ATL most beloved eateries may have just closed its doors forever! TMZ reports that the Georgia Dept of Revenue has raided all three locations of Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles restaurants, removing computers, files and the contents from safes.
Gladys’ son is who runs the business, and reportedly the person that is being investigated. Authorities believe $1 million may have been embezzled. And the famed singer is trying to distance herself ALL the way. A rep for her says:
“[Gladys] lent her name to her son’s restaurants in the Atlanta area, similar to a celebrity endorsement. Ms. Knight was not involved in any way with the operation of the restaurants and she is sure that her son and his business partners will rectify the situation.”
