Ayesha Curry is being accused of screwing over a company that allegedly helped launch her brand.
According to reports, Robert Flutie, who runs a celebrity branding company, Flutie Entertainment, filed a lawsuit against Steph Curry’s wife.
In the newly filed complaint, Flutie Entertainment says they helped build Ayesha into the household name she is today. Robert says he met Ayesha back in 2014. At the time her only project was a cooking blog called “Little Lights of Mine.”
Robert says Ayesha signed with his company in November, 2015. The suit say Ayesha expressed an interest in building her brand apart from her husband and his name.
The company claims they guided Ayesha into realizing her dream of being a celebrity chef, like “a current and modern-day version of Martha Stewart or Rachael Ray.”
Flutie Entertainment says they came up with the idea for Ayesha to launch cookbooks, TV shows and a line of cooking products. They claim Ayesha fired them out of the blue in May 2019. Robert says he had no idea of any issues between the two. The company accuses Ayesha of attempting to cut them out of profits and interest in various projects.
The lawsuit is seeking at least $10 million in damages, 50% interest in Ayesha’s production company Yardie Girl, a cut of her income from her cooking products and various other ventures. The company believes they should be paid for business deals made during the contract term.
Ayesha’s lawyer already fired back in a statement released after the lawsuit was filed. Her attorney, Michael Plonsker, denies the allegations in the case brought by Flutie Entertainment. His statement reads, “Ayesha Curry terminated her business relationship with disgruntled manager Robert Flutie in early 2019. We are confident that the legal process will find his accusations nonsensical and completely unfounded.”
