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.”
