Flavor Flav has something to tell his family but he’s just not ready to reveal his news in this EXCLUSIVE preview of the Oct. 24 episode of Growing Up Hip Hop: New York. After he finishes up lunch with his son, he calls someone else. “I plan on telling my kids what’s going on with me,” he says over the phone. “I’m not going to keep it from them. The time gotta be right. And the only right time is when we’re all four together.”
He continues: “I didn’t let him know what was going with me, about what the doctor said.” Flavor Flav still hasn’t revealed exactly what’s going on with him. “It’s difficult,” he admits. “It’s just difficult, bro, you know what I’m saying? I just couldn’t get it out right now.”
