Rapper Flavor Flav is facing a stint in jail after he failed to show up for a court hearing in New York this week.
The Public Enemy star is accused of failing to pay child support to Angie Parker from Albany County, N.Y., who is mother to three of his kids, and he was due to appear in court there to address the matter.
