Rumors have been running rampant since Bobby Flay and Stephanie March announced they were divorcing after 10 years of marriage. March, a former star on Law & Order: SVU, is not happy with what she has been reading in the tabloids. Flay, the Food Network guru, allegedly had a three-year affair with his assistant, Elyse Tirrell. It has been reported that the affair between the 50-year old chef and his 28-year old assistant is the reason March kicked Flay out of their home.
Flay’s camp has responded to stories alleging he cheated on March by saying they would not respond to March’s attempts to sling mud in an effort to renegotiate the couple’s pre-nuptial agreement. Apparently, the pre-nuptial contract was signed before the couple got married and has never been updated or amended. March believes there are significant issues with the couple’s marital contract and has requested the divorce court to hold the agreement unconscionable.
According to TMZ, March’s attorney sent a letter to Flay’s counsel expressing outrage at the measly $5000 support check Flay sent. The 2005 prenup only requires Flay to pay $5000 per month in support, but March considers the prenup to be unenforceable. March’s lawyer further alleges that Flay has been bullying March by cancelling her credit cards which she had been uses for household and daily expenses. Finally, March’s counsel believes Flay is attempting to pressure March into agreeing to a joint press release stating the split is amicable. If March refuses to do so, she will not be allowed to remain in the marital home with her sick mother.
