NEW YORK (November 2, 2006) — Flavor Flav, who’s dating “Flavor of Love” winner Deelishis, is expecting a child - his seventh - with another woman, his manager, Clifton Johnson, confirmed Thursday.
When things didn’t work out with Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander, who won the first season of his hit VH1 reality show, Flav resumed an “on and off” relationship with the baby-to-be’s mother “hence, the conception,” Johnson said. The baby is due in early January, he said.
Johnson would not reveal the mother’s identity.
Deelishis (real name London Charles), whom Flav chose in the recent second-season finale of “Flavor of Love,” is reportedly standing by her man.
“She understands that this is definitely something prior to her involvement on the show and her involvement with Flav, and she says she supports him regardless,” Johnson said.
Flavor Flav (real name William Drayton Jr.), 47, founded the hip-hop group Public Enemy in the `80s. He found fame anew in 2004 on the third season of VH1’s “The Surreal Life.” He has since starred in the network’s “Strange Love” and “Flavor of Love.”
