All three Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffle restaurants just got shut down by the Georgia Department of Revenue.
Gladys Knight’s son, who runs the operation, is at the center of an investigation involving $1 million.

Agents removed computers, files, and the contents from safes within each establishment.
A rep for Gladys says that she “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.”
We’ll get more information in the coming days. Yikes.
