Flavor Flav almost found out what it would be like to have his oversized clock ticking behind bars.

TMZ is reporting that the Flavor of Love star fell behind in his child support payments to the tune of $111,186 and faced 180 days in prison. But early Tuesday evening, he worked out his legal issues with Angie Parker, mom to three of his seven children.

The court would not say if Flav, 53, paid the entire debt, but sources close to his case say he cut a check closer to $25,000. Flavor’s next live appearance will be in court this September, when a judge ensures that he’s keeping up with his child support obligations.

“No matter what’s in the media, I am good father to all my seven children. I’ll never let my family do without,” Flav told TMZ. “I do the best I can with what I got and try to make it work. I am satisfied with the judge’s decision and I thank the judge for being understanding. Operation No Doubt is now in progress!!!”
