Flavor Flav facing jail over child support case

Rapper Flavor Flav is facing a stint in jail after he failed to show up for a court hearing in New York this week (ends27May12).

The Public Enemy star is accused of failing to pay child support to Angie Parker from Albany County, New York, who is mother to three of his kids, and he was due to appear in court there to address the matter.

However, Flavor Flav - real name William Drayton, Jr. - did not attend the hearing and the Albany County Court magistrate recommended a 180-day jail sentence for the star, while his driver's license and passport will also be revoked, according to the New York Daily News.

The 53 year old must now appear in Albany Family Court on 19 June (12). He allegedly owes more than $111,186 to Parker.
