King of Diamonds, a famous strip club in Miami, has officially closed. The city shut down the business known for putting stars like Blac Chyna on the map with a celebrity clientele that included rappers and athletes. It's also the place often rapped about in hits by Drake and Lil Wayne. Keep reading for more details.
King of Diamonds was the place where reality TV star Black Chyna rose to fame. The club went into foreclosure, according to the Miami New Times. The Miami Herald reported that it had been sued more than a year ago because the owners didn't pay their rent.
The club, where Justin Bieber famously dropped 75-thousand dollars in singles, was ordered to pay more than $305K to it’s landlord. When the owners didn’t cough up the money, the landlord asked the court to evict them.
The club was considered “one of the most famous in America” and boasted a celebrity clientele that ranged from Rick Ross to Floyd Mayweather.
The venue was also name-dropped in hit songs. Juicy J rapped “At the KOD, she leave with me” in his hit Bandz A Make Her Dance. Drake also referenced to the club in All Me. “Fore the end of this year, I'll do King of Diamonds three more times,” he sings.
Yes Drake was talking about me in Miss Me ! Call up King of Diamonds and tell Chyna it was worth the flight !— Blac Chyna (@BLACCHYNA) August 19, 2011
Drake sung about the club multiple times. Blac Chyna cleared up the lyrics to "Miss Me" in a tweet: "Yes, Drake was talking about me in 'Miss Me.'" As OK! readers know, those two have been linked in the past.
The business has not promoted any events on social media since October 17, according to The Miami Herald. But they did post this on their official Instagram page earlier.
So far, Chyna has not posted about the news on social media.
