It’s been reported today that BFFs David Beckham and TV chef Gordon Ramsay are to open a restaurant together.
Of the new eatery, which will apparently be in London, David told The Sun of his business deal with Gordon, “We’ve got something in the pipeline. We are obviously good friends and we are excited about a project that could happen pretty soon.”
He added, “It will be a business thing but owning a restaurant is going to be fun as well.”
And of learning to cook himself, David recently said, “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve always loved cooking.
“I’d love to cook for Gordon and I definitely will one day.”
The enterprise will doubtless be one that Gordon hopes goes better than his former working relationship with his father-in-law Chris Hutcheson, which ended in the courts and caused a massive rift within the family…
And according to the Daily Mail recently, Hutcheson and his son Adam are going into direct competition with restaurateur Gordon by launching a chain of “healthy ¬fast-food restaurants” called Scoffs.
The paper adds, “The eateries will reportedly serve ‘British tapas’ for diet-conscious office workers and the first one will be opened in central London.”
The bitter feud between Gordon and Chris began when Gordon accused his father-in-law of hacking into private emails and of skimming £1.4million from Gordon’s restaurant empire.
Hutcheson denied the claims and while branding Gordon a “fame-obsessed monster” he sued him for unfair dismissal and unpaid wages.
The very public spat ended earlier this year when Ramsay and Hutcheson reached a £2million settlement deal, but of course, legal costs nearly ruined both men!
So, yep, fingers crossed that things don’t end up in such a mess for David and Gordon.
Here’s a reminder of just how fiery Gordon can be when crossed…
