If you’re holding your breath that the landlady will wait until the end of the week to cash your rent check, you might want to look away now. In an interview with Popeater, it’s revealed that Flavor Flav’s drug problem soaked up tens of thousands of dollars a day at the bleak of his cocaine addition. “Yeah I was spending $2,600 a day, for six years, every single day. I don’t know how much that is but if you did the math, wow, I went through a lot of money,” the rapper admits when discussing his new memoir Flavor Flav: Icon. “If I did the math I’d probably be shocked on how much money I spent, I’d probably punch myself in the face.” And you know he just spilled half of it all over that damn clock!
Popeater did do the math, and approximates that Flav put an astounding $5,696,6000 up his nose, give or take a sick day. We can’t even conceive of what his gold tooth budget looks like. While he has kicked the habit, Flav has had some lingering issues on the wrong side of the law, including Flavor Flav’s arrest last month for an outstanding traffic warrant. “I knew that in order for me to do that and be successful, I had to leave all of that behind me. I had to because me being a major celebrity, everything that I do, word will travel,” Flav said about his decision to get clean. Well, that and he didn’t want to end up spending a billion dollars on drugs. That amount would just be insane.
