British celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay to sue family members
London: Gordon Ramsay is taking a family feud to court by suing a number of his wife`s relatives.
Ramsay`s rift with his in-laws hit the headlines last year when his father-in-law Chris Hutcheson left his post as CEO of Gordon Ramsay Holdings (GRH) and subsequently filed a lawsuit against Ramsay.
The chef later spoke out to insist he felt "betrayed" and "let down" by his in-laws.
The 44-year-old filed a writ at London`s High Court Aug 5 complaining against wife Tana`s father Hutcheson, her mother Greta, sister Orlanda Butland, brother Adam, sister-in-law Adelaide, and Hutcheson`s alleged mistress Sara Stewart, reports dailystar.co.uk.
In the documents, Ramsay accuses Hutcheson of allegedly hacking into his personal and company files, withdrawing millions of pounds from the firm and using the money to reportedly fund a double life with Stewart.
The chef also alleges Hutcheson put his wife and son on the company payroll without permission and wrote massive cheques to himself.
"Clearly, this whole episode has been hugely distressing for Gordon and Tana. All they want is to put the events of last autumn behind them and move on, but given the enormity of what has been uncovered they have no option but to let the legal process take its course," said a spokesperson of chef.
