Jay-Z sues 40/40 chef for $1.5 million

Mediabistro reports Jay-Z is suing his former 40/40 Chef, Mike Shand for $1.5 million for failing 'to perform on significant aspects'...

Luther Vandross was outed as gay after his death.

Mediabistro reports Jay-Z is suing his former 40/40 Chef, Mike Shand for $1.5 million for failing “to perform on significant aspects”.

Song-and-dance-man/branding expert Jay-Z and chef Mike Shand used to be tight like that, but the sparkle on their relationship seems to have dimmed: Jay just filed a $1.5 million lawsuit against Shand for failing “to to perform on significant aspects” of a contract that named him as head honcho in charge of remaking the baseball-themed 40/40 Club‘s menu into something really special (as opposed to the overpriced bar food lineup now featured on the club’s website).

Following a January re-launch, this is the second big move that Hova has made in an ongoing attempt to improve his Flatiron District sports bar/nightclub’s reputation for…closely resembling a cross between a sports bar and a night club. And he didn’t pick Shand out of thin air, either: The reported California native also served as personal chef to both Jay and wife Beyoncé on recent tours. We’re guessing Shand didn’t care for “Watch the Throne” either, huh?
