Gordon loses battle over £640K rent bill
CELEBRITY chef Gordon Ramsay has lost a High Court battle over his personal liability for the rent on a London pub after a judge refused rejected evidence he gave in court.
The pub deal took place when his father-in-law Christopher Hutcheson was boss and helping him build his restaurant empire.
The superchef ( right) accused Mr Hutcheson in court of using a machine to forge his signature on a document which made him personal guarantor for the £640K annual rent for the York & Albany pub near Regent’s Park.
But Mr Justice Morgan, sitting in London, dismissed as “entirely implausible” 48-year-old Ramsay’s claim he did not know the full extent of the use of the signature machine.
