Gordon Ramsay sued by US accountants

FOUL-MOUTHED TV CHEF GORDON RAMSAY is facing a lawsuit over an alleged $75,000 (£48,800) bill owed to his New York-based accountants Marks, Paneth & Shron.

According to the lawsuit fiiled in New York’s Manhattan Supreme Court, Ramsay and his businesses are alleged to owe the firm for three unpaid invoices dating back to 2010 and 2011, and are accused of having “breached their contractual obligations”.

According to the New York Post, a spokeswoman for Ramsay said she was unaware of the lawsuit.

The Hell’s Kitchen and Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares star is reported to have not refuted the bills, but has not paid them either.

The invoices are understood to break down to $14,000 in July 2010, $35,000 in May 2011 and $25,000 in October 2011.

As well as his TV programmes, Ramsay owns 11 restaurants across London, with more in France, Italy, the US and Qatar.
