Down-home celebrity chef and Food Network star Paula Deen and her sons have been slapped with a $40 million counter suit filed by by Celebrity Chefs Tours LLC, Eater National reported.

The suit is in response to one filed by Deen against the event promoter back in February. That suit alleges that CCT defamed Deen and her sons after they canceled a 10-city tour and the company allegedly talked trash about their reasons, Food Network Addict reported.

In the counter suit CCT filed on March 15, the event promoter says the Deen family failed to promote a string of appearances to which they had previously agreed.


However, this is not the end of Deen’s trouble.  According to Milford & Associates PC, a law firm specializing in protecting intellectual property, Deen has also been sued for trademark infringement for selling cooking equipment under the name “Butter Bell.”  Unfortunately, that name was already taken.  MORE. . .
