Bobby Flay Responds To Reports He Cheated On Ex Wife Stephanie March With His Assistant!
Boy, this divorce drama between Bobby Flay and Stephanie March keeps heating up!
As we reported earlier this month, the Food Network star called it quits with the Law & Order: SVU actress after the two have been having marital problems for the past year-and-a-half.
Well according to a recent report, those issues may have been caused by infidelity!
Several outlets are claiming that the chef had a three-year-long affair with his assistant Elyse Tirrell!
Recently, the 50-year-old and his rep issued a statement regarding such claims!
“We will continue to refrain from responding to the continued efforts by certain parties to spread rumors and innuendo├óΓé¼┬ª This specific allegation was in a letter sent from one attorney in this case to the other. It was written and then leaked specifically to try to insert this story into the press, and that’s unfortunate. Even more unfortunate is that all of this is being done in order to renegotiate a pre-nuptial agreement that was agreed to over a decade ago and never amended during the marriage.”
As we previously wrote, the 40-year-old thespian is trying to fight said prenup that is only allotting her $5,000 a week!
Word of the affair spread when actress/writer Maia Madison told Page Six that March learned of the fling sometime after Thanksgiving in 2014.
“She came to my house and was sobbing uncontrollably. She said, ‘I can’t believe the last 10 years of my life have been a lie.'”
However, Flay’s business partner Laurence Kretchmer came to his friend’s defense by saying:
“Bobby has a rule that when people talk crap about him he doesn’t respond. I’ve been in the middle of this relationship for 14 years, and he did everything he could to save his marriage├óΓé¼┬ª Elyse is a great and valued employee and it is awful to see her dragged into this thing. If she had an affair with Bobby it would have been reported to me. That has never even been suggested, and people like to talk. Have Bobby and Elyse been seen together? Yes, that’s her job. None of this has any basis in reality.”
