Nothing comes between business associates like chicken wings. Jay-Z is suing chef Mike Shand for, among other things, allegedly stealing the 40/40 Club’s prized chicken wing recipe and spice-mix.

Jay apparently hired Shand, who previously worked as his personal chef, to make changes to 40/40 as part of a $10 million renovation to Jay’s chain of sports bars.

Now Jay is claiming that Shand never actually did that and he’s suing the chef for $1.5 million for “taking the recipes to popular menu items such as chicken wings.” In response, Shand’s lawyer stated,

“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. He gave them all apart from this spice-mix because it is his own. Mike had a wonderful relationship with Jay-Z and Beyonce for many years.”

Why Paying College Athletes Will Ruin The Already Tainted Game

College athletes have a pretty nice little setup. They get to have some, if not all, of their college education paid for; they get immediately placed into the top tier of the social ladder, and many of them get to leave college with very little debt. That doesn’t sound too bad at all. These student […]
