A woman who had an affair with Gordon Ramsay's father-in-law has accused the celebrity chef of hiring detectives to take intimate photos of her through her bedroom window and threatening to go public with the candid pictures.
Sara Stewart, who previously worked as an accountant at the Brit's firm Gordon Ramsay Holdings (Grh), has filed a lawsuit against the restaurateur and TV personality for invasion of privacy.
This is the latest in a string of legal problems for the Hell's Kitchen host - earlier this year (12) he filed a defamation lawsuit against a former associate who alleged Ramsay was "too busy" to promote their eatery.
He also settled two separate disputes, one with bosses of a New Zealand promotional company after he failed to show up for a charity event, and another with Hutcheson, who used to be the chief executive of Grh, over claims he withdrew money from the company and used it to fund his double life with Stewart.
