Jay-Z Beefs With 40/40 Chef In $1.5 Lawsuit

(AllHipHop News) Jay-Z is suing his former personal chef, who also ran the 40/40 Club’s kitchen, over the menu at the rap mogul’s famous sports bar.

The rapper recently filed a $1.5 million lawsuit against Mike Shand, in Manhattan Federal Court.

According to the lawsuit, Mike Shand failed to perform significant aspects of his deal with the 40/40 Club, which called for him to spice up the menu for the club’s $10,000,000 renovation earlier this year.

But the lawsuit claims that the chef’s lack of performance cost the club lost profits, along with the alienation of its patrons.

Additionally, the 40/40 Club claims it was not able to replace the menu items that Shand was paid to provide.

A lawyer for Shand told the New York Post that his client, who has traveled around the world with Jay-Z, was surprised by the lawsuit.

“Mike’s a great chef, and it is unclear why 40/40 would contemplate a lawsuit against him,” Shand’s lawyer Vik Pawar said. “Nevertheless, we will respond accordingly when he gets served with the complaint.”
