SandraRose.com reports rapper and mogul Jay-Z recently filed a lawsuit against his former personal chef and head chef of his 40/40 Club.
Chef, Mike Shand, started running the sports bar's kitchen after cooking for Jay-Z and Beyonce while on tour.
When 40/40 was closed temporarily by the health department early this year, Shand abandoned the club and took the special recipes with him.
In official court documentation of the Jay-Z litigation team it is alleged that Shand jumping ship and stealing the recipes resulted in the club losing clients and profits.
According to Shand and his lawyer, Vik Pawar, the chef willing handed over all his recipes except for the spice mix that he claims to have created.
“The spice-mix recipe that Mike developed is his own recipe. 40/40 terminated him, then had the audacity to sue him for his recipes," said Pawar.
Before this, Shand has held and upstanding relationship with Jay-Z and Beyonce for many of years.
