Flavor Flav’s former manager and mother of his infant son, Kate Gammell, is selling Flavor Flav merch in an effort to provide some financial relief. The longtime Public Enemy member has yet to acknowledge kinship to the child — despite a paternity test stating otherwise.
The collection boasts several colorful Flavor Flav t-shirts, hoodies and hats. For every item sold, Gammell is donating a portion of the proceeds to Los Angeles County Children’s Hospital to aid in the coronavirus crisis.
“When I told him I was pregnant with his child, Flavor let me go and I was left with thousands of dollars of Flavor Flav merch that I had purchased with my own money,” Gammell explains to HipHopDX. “Jordan is not getting any child support from Flavor and I needed money for Jordan’s everyday needs. So, I decided to pull out the merch and sell it to help my son and give a percentage to Children’s Hospital.
“I doubt I will recoup the money that I put into this, but I don’t care, as any money towards Jordan’s needs is important. The support for Jordan has been fantastic so far.”
