Comedian Jerry Seinfeld and his celebrity chef wife Jessica have been sued by Missy Chase Lapine, who has accused the pair of copyright infringement and defamation.
Chef and baby-products mogul Lapine claims the recipes in Jessica Seinfeld’s best selling cookbook Deceptively Delicious are “brazenly plagiarised” from those in her own book, The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies For Hiding Healthy Foods In Kids’ Favorite Meals, about hiding healthy ingredients in foods children will eat.
The comic himself – who branded Lapine a “wacko” during a rant on America’s The Late Show last year – has been accused of “malicious defamation” and named as a defendant.
The lawsuit, filed Monday with the Federal District Court in Manhattan, New York, seeks unspecified damages.
