Gordon Ramsay removes two more family members
Gordon Ramsay has reportedly suspended his wife's brother and sacked her nephew from his company. Not long after firing wife Tana's father Chris Hutcheson as CEO of Gordon Ransay Holdings, the chef has now removed both Adam Hutcheson and his son, Christopher, from his business empire. According to the MailOnline, Adam's wife Adelaide said: "The whole family is upset with Gordon. It is just not fair on us. "My husband [Adam] used to work for Gordon's company as Chris Hutcheson's number two. But now he has been suspended, my poor 19-year-old boy who also worked for him was sacked. It makes me so angry to think Gordon sacked them all on the same day. "I don't know whether Gordon is financially in trouble or not, but it is very distressing for our family." Gordon wrote an open letter to his mother-in-law Greta, published in the Evening Standard this week: "This has to be one of the most painful letters I've ever had to write. Listening to Tana in floods of tears reading your letter from you asking that she stays away from her family is so awfully wrong." He called the decision to remove his father-in-law from the business 'the hardest and most important decision in my entire life', but accused him of being manipulating and controlling.
