As Hotel Hell’s Facebook fans already know, Gordon Ramsay has a gift for bringing together bickering friends and family members — and thereby revitalizing seemingly doomed establishments. Unfortunately, that talent doesn’t seem to extend to the reality chef’s own life, as he is currently facing a huge lawsuit from a former business partner.
Twitter followers have recently noticed that Gordon Ramsay appears to be struggling with a number of his non-reality ventures. One of his restaurants lost its Michelin stars and another closed altogether. The closed restaurant, once known as the Fat Cow, spurred plenty of drama during its short run and appears to still be causing Chef Ramsay trouble.
Already having faced multiple lawsuits, Gordon must not have been pleased when he learned of new legal drama involving Rowen Seibel. According to this former business partner, when problems with the Fat Cow initially began to arise, Gordon jumped ship. The chef was also accused of neglecting to pay the agreed-upon $52,000 per month for the restaurant’s lease.
The issues with the Fat Cow first began when another restaurant sued for naming rights. Chef Ramsay was subsequently sued for skipping out on his lease payments and later, for abandoning his business partner when his expertise was needed most. Gordon, however, does not believe he is to blame. A spokesperson for the chef explained in a recent statement, “It’s the unfortunate, but inevitable normal procedure resulting from Rowen Seibel’s gross mismanagement of the restaurant and diversion of funds from the business that lead to a string of financial and legal issues.”
Do you think Gordon Ramsay is to blame for the Fat Cow’s failure? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
