Gordon Ramsay Sells Off British Production Company
Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has sold his British production company, two weeks after he was hit with a demand for more than $2 million in unpaid taxes. Ramsay's Optomen Productions, which produces the Brit's U.K. television shows "The F Word" and "Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares", has been sold to All3Media for $60 million, reports the New York Post.
In early August, it emerged U.S. authorities had sent his firm Gordon Ramsay Holdings three outstanding tax bills in the last eight months. The most recent demand, sent in July, totaled $484,500. A spokesperson for Gordon Ramsay Holdings subsequently confirmed the taxes are not the reality TV star's personal liabilities.
Ramsay's tax woes followed days after he was forced to shut down his restaurant in Cape Town, South Africa, on Friday, July 30. The foul-mouthed chef has recently been hit with a series of lawsuits over allegedly unpaid bills - fueling rumors his business empire is in trouble.
