Examining Celebrity Chef Bobby Flay's contentious divorce

In 2015 Bobby Flay and his wife of 10 years battled through a public and contentious divorce. Flay’s Ex-wife Stephanie March (Law & Order SVU) accused Flay of infidelity with his personal assistant, Elyse Tirrell. Tirrel, who had previously worked as a hostess at Flay’s Bar American later became one of Flay’s top aides. Flay denied the allegations and maintained that his relationship with Tirrell was strictly professional. March and her lawyer’s legal battle centered on seeking more compensation than the agreed $5,000 per month, per the prenuptial agreement both parties had signed in 2002. Reportedly, March was seeking percentages of Flay’s earnings which included his business ventures and television shows such as Beat Bobby Flay!
