Stephanie March and Bobby Flay are getting a divorce, and shortly after he filed papers, word emerged that he had been cheating on the Law & Order: SVU actress. Is this a rumor or is it true?
According to a report from Us Weekly, Bobby Flay cheated on Stephanie March with 28-year-old Elyse Tirrell, a "singer/actress who worked as a hostess at the chef's Bar Americain in 2008 and became his assistant."
When Bobby Flay was asked about these cheating allegations, he enlisted the help of a rep to reply.
"We will continue to refrain from responding to the continued efforts by certain parties to spread rumors and innuendo. This specific allegation was in a letter sent from one attorney in this case to the other. It was written and then leaked specifically to try to insert this story into the press, and that’s unfortunate. Even more unfortunate is that all of this is being done in order to renegotiate a prenuptial agreement that was agreed to over a decade ago and never amended during the marriage," the rep said in a statement issued to Us Weekly.

It wasn't so long ago that some sources believed Bobby Flay was having a fling with Giada De Laurentiis.
Stephanie March has lawyers working on her behalf to contest her prenup with Bobby Flay. That contract states Flay only has to pay March $5,000 per month.
Maia Madison is a close friend to Stephanie March. She says her friend learned about the cheating rumor back in November.
"She came to my house and was sobbing uncontrollably. She said, ‘I can’t believe the last 10 years of my life have been a lie,'" Madison explains.
Bobby Flay's business partner Laurence Kretchmer said in an interview with Page Six that if Flay had cheated on Stephanie March, he'd have known about it.
It seems Kretchmar has heard more rumors about Stephanie March and Bobby Flay that will reportedly surface soon.
"As ugly as Stephanie is going to look [when this news comes out], she will look uglier when other things come out," he said rather cryptically.
Do you think Bobby Flay really did cheat on Stephanie March or is there way more to this story?
