    Kanye West trimmed some fat from his Chicago area Fatburger franchises over the weekend.

    The rapper's Orland Park location of the burger-flipping chain was shuttered on Sunday because of underperforming finances, Crain's Chicago reports. 

    West, who has a deal with the Santa Monica, Calif.-based Fatburger Corp. to open 10 restaurants in the Chicago area, opened the Orland Park location at 15100 S. La Grange Road in August 2008. He has a second location in Beverly.
    Fatburger Corp. CEO Andy Widerhorn told crain's the company is seeking a replacement site in Orland Park and that the Beverly location is doing well.
