Chuck D apologizes for Flavor Flav's 'Strange Love' deadbeat behavior

UPI News Service, 03/29/2005 

Hip-hop sensation Public Enemy is being torn over revelations Flavor Flav may have been stingy with the six children he has had by two women.

VH1's reality show "Strange Love" portrayed Flavor Flav arguing with actress Brigitte Nielsen after she gave one of his baby's mothers her hotel number.

VH1 also showed one of the rapper's daughters wearing a T-shirt reading "Winning Against Deadbeat Dads."

News of the broadcast prompted Public Enemy frontman Chuck D to apologize publicly for Flav's behavior, reported Tuesday.

"I would be lying if I said that the side of Flav shown on 'Strange Love' doesn't affect what I've wanted our collective to stand for because it does, and many have told us how deeply they are bothered by this," he said.

For his part, Flav says no apology is needed and the show is accurate.

"What you see on the show definitely is Flav," he said. "It's just that you're seeing certain sides of Flav that Flav didn't want people to see."
