Sue's Rendezvous, a popular strip club in Mount Vernon, New York, is closing its doors after 45 years. According to several reports, legal troubles and changing clientele.
A lawsuit filed by former employee Falema Bruton is still in progress. Bruton claims that the establishment illegally retained tips and improperly withheld wages. A shooting outside of the club also cast a black cloud over the buisness, as a woman and a 20-year-old man were shot following a dispute between patrons.
Owner Gaetano Gizzo, 70, says he's unclear whether he'll reopen the popular establishment, which was named in tracks from the likes of Nicki Minaj, Jay Z, and Biggie. Gizzo reminisced, saying, "I've been fortunate. A lot of celebrities have come into this club.... When the Giants won the Super Bowl, they came in here. Mike Tyson, Floyd Mayweather, I can name hundreds of stars that came into this place."
