Gordon Ramsay sacked his business partner of 12 years last month…who also happened to be his father-in-law! Ouch!
As a result, Ramsay's mother-in-law, Greta Hutcheson, is seeking to sever all ties with Gordon's family.
Gordon doesn't want to lose his mother-in-law though, and he's written an emotional, open letter in an effort to convince her to change her mind.
Here is an excerpt from the letter:
“I'm not expecting a birthday card, but your punishing your daughter and our four children, for all the wrong reasons, it's so sad. She's an amazing woman and you've been a fantastic mum… please don't stop!”
Here's Ramsay on his reasoning for ditching Greta's husband:
“[Mr. Hutcheson] suggested my mood swings were down to involvement with drugs; my God did that hurt. How dare he ever suggest this on the back of my frustration and dealings with my younger brother and his addiction.”
In the letter, Ramsay accused Mr. Hutcheson of running the business "as a dictator."
It's certainly respectable of Gordon to take the time to write this letter, but we're not 100% sure that badmouthing his mother-in-law's husband is going to do the trick. Guess we'll see how it plays out!
Do U think Gordon Ramsay is going about this the right way? Or not so much?
