*Ayesha Curry has been hit with a multi-million dollar lawsuit by a celebrity branding company for breach of contract.
According to the Associated Press, the wife of Golden State superstar Steph Curry is being sued for more than $10 million by Flutie Entertainment. According to owner Robert Flutie, Curry tapped his company in 2014 to help build her global brand.
Flutie said in the lawsuit that the five years spent with Curry brought “significant and unprecedented results.” But since terminating the relationship in 2019, the celebrity chef has refused to pay the company its share of proceeds from her various food-based businesses, per Complex.
The lawsuit states Flutie was “clearly and undeniably instrumental in helping her achieve success,” which included helping Curry land a Food Network show and a hosting role on ABC’s “Great American Baking Show,” as well as producing a bestselling cookbook.

In related news, Ayesha took to Instagram recently to announce the launch of her very own lifestyle magazine, “Sweet July.”
“If you’re like me, you’re looking for any glimmer of light or joy in the world right now to help get you through these unforeseen strange times,” she captioned her teaser video. “Last fall, I was offered the opportunity to create my own magazine. Besides it having a cover and pages and pictures, I was given the blank slate to make it whatever I wanted.”
“After a lot of thought and self-reflection, I decided that what I wanted was to tell stories with substance about things that matter. Showcase people doing groundbreaking things and supporting their communities,” she continued. “Give people information but also inspiration. I wanted my girls to be able to see themselves in the pictures and the stories, and feel like not only is there a place for them in this world, but that the skies the limit for what they can achieve. And then the craziest thing happened.. We made it! And we called it Sweet July. Why? Well, all three of our babies were born in July, we got married in July and it’s the 7th month in the calendar year. It’s the time in my life where I find I have the most joy and excitement. I wanted to carry that through every day and simply honour and find gratitude in the big and the small moments.”
The magazine will also offer candid conversations with Curry’s husband and feature their children, Riley, 7, Ryan, 4, and Canon, 1.
The debut issue is set to debut nationwide next month for $9.99.
