According to the Associated Press, Steph Curry’s wife, Ayesha Curry is being sued for $10million by a company that once represented her. Ayesha Curry has built her brand in the food industry, delivering a multiple cookbooks and her own line of cookware.
The plaintiff, Flutie Entertainment claims that Curry signed a contract with Flutie Entertainment in November 2014 with an eye toward building herself up as a global brand. The company’s owner, Robert Flutie says during her time as a client, Curry created a career as a celebrity chef. She had a show on Food Network for two seasons, Ayesha’s Home Kitchen, and was the host of The Great American Baking Show for a season.
Flutie says his company helped Curry “realise her vision of becoming a current and modern-day version of Martha Stewart or Rachael Ray.” Yet in 2019, she parted ways with Flutie Entertainment. In doing so, she allegedly tried to stop the company from receiving “all profits and ownership equity of things she created during her time as a Flutie client.” This prompted Flutie Entertainment to file its $10 million lawsuit against the former client.
Flutie Entertainment also wants 50 percent interest in Ayesha’s Yardie Girl production company as well as a stake in her homeware brand, which includes a website and e-commerce business. Curry has yet to respond publicly to the lawsuit.
