Flavor Flav or Flavor Flav is infamous for his huge clock necklace and crazy relationships these days but in his prime he was actually famous for rapping. His beginnings were with the rap group “Public Enemy” in 1988 but sagging sales in the early nineties took him down financially and in popularity quickly. A serious disappearance into jail did not help the fledgling rapper gain success as a rapper but took him to the land of poverty very quickly.

Hit records didn’t come as easy as his beginning. So he ventured deeply into the world of addiction but the fallen rapper was just beginning to plummet as friends intervened and brought him out of his mother’s home to stardom as a an all-around circus side show. Flavor Flav was an instant hit with his addictions, stints in jail and popularity as a real life drama on the reality show “The Surreal Life” on VH1.
Flavor Flav was born as William Jonathan Drayton Jr in Roosevelt, New York. Flav did not stay in school and began finding fascination in the criminal world as a convicted felon for armed robbery and assaulting his domestic partners. Flav continues to head to jail as even late as 2015 he was busted for driving under the influence and hauled to jail. Flavor Flav continues to be a strange taste for the public with either a love or a hate relationship he enjoys with pride.
Flavor Flav has been jailed for his addictions and domestic assaults but he soars as a reality show star for his odd tastes and rehab stints. “The Surreal Life” brought the obscure out of Flava when he hooked up with fellow fallen star Brigitte Neilson as a romantic interlude which included a sequel for the public at large called “Strange Love.”
Flava does not pretend to be a decent person but he does have cooking talent and has even ventured into the world of cuisine with limited success. However, no serious success has happened as he still tries to make a reputation as chef without fighting or paying his rent on three failed attempts at making cooking an actual thing on his resume.
Flavor Flav oddly regained his fame and net worth with a domestic partner publically. However, in private has been arrested for many violent assaults against his domestic partners and appears in an orange jump suit regularly. His romance with Brigitte Nielson gained him infamy because the public just loved to watch the strange pair create a “Strange Love.” He has had many reality TV show spinoffs which is amazing for having really no talent at all but recognition for his odd taste in jewelry making him eye-catching and easy to remember.
The aptly named television show “The Surreal Life” brought the rapper to the prime time stage but his romance with one of the co-stars of the show has kept his net worth growing. Flavor Flav made the world wince as he and his co-star lay beside each other talking out their problems openly for the world to see. The funny part was they never discussed his serious problems about having a relationship. Which is ironic compared to his reality as a woman beating drug addicted bully making his co-star seem completely normal in comparison.
Brigitte went proudly on to star with him in a sequel has never filed charges of domestic assault against Flavor Flav.So she must have been great for the crazy clock wearing ex-rapper with very little talent but large character. These days Flava keeps his name in the public eye with restaurant attempts and more reality shows keeping his net worth out there in the million dollar range. Flava has a taste for fine dining and crack smoking which is unfortunate that rehab has not taken for the circus side show which is Flavor Flav.
Flavor Flav will take fame where he can receive it and is happy to do so in the Hollyweird side of life. As the reality star ages maybe he will up his net worth with the sequel of rehabilitated anger managing personality. One can always hope the best and for Flav it might just begin to be a star that shines instead of his gold teeth and tendency for the weirder parts of fame. He still remains high in the net worth department and reinvention is Hollywood’s favorite ground for fallen child stars and one hit wonders. Stranger things have happened here’s hoping for his best dance yet.
