According to TMZ,

Gladys Knight is suing her own son after her Atlanta restaurant Gladys Knight & Ron Winans Chicken & Waffles recently got raided.  Gladys is suing her son to stop using her name and face to promote the eatery.  Gladys said she allowed her name and image to be used for the restaurants back in 1999 but stopped after the eateries were raided by the Georgia Department of Revenue and her son was arrested for allegedly pocketing $1 million. In addition to money and an injunction, Gladys also wants all her memorabilia in the restaurants returned to her.

I know that was a hard thing to do.  Good for her!
