When the Walk of Fame becomes the Walk of Shame!? Bobby Flay may have been posing with his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday, June 2, but it was something in the sky that really had cameras flashing. As seen in pics, the celebrity chef — who is in the middle of a messy divorce — looked up to find a “Cheater” airplane banner flying over his ceremony. Many speculated that his estranged wife, Stephanie March, was behind the stunt, but her lawyer says she’s not involved.

“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,” Flay said in a statement to Us, referring to the claim that he had a three-year affair with his assistant Elyse Tirrell. “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.”
