Bobby Flay's Walk of Fame Speech Punked by Flying 'Cheater' Banner

Bobby Flay received the first-ever celebrity chef star on the Hollywood Walk on Fame Tuesday, but an overhead plane’s banner may have overshadowed the Food Network star's honor.

The 50-year-old’s speech was accompanied by a green prop plane flying in the area pulling along a clear banner reading “CHEATER” in black letters, according to People magazine. The occasion marked Flay's first public appearance since filing for divorce from his wife of 10 years in April.

An eyewitness told E! Online that the banner appeared just as Flay began his presentation and continued to circle until he finished.

Many have speculated that the famed restaurateur cheated on his wife, "Law & Order: SVU" actress Stephanie March, but no confirmation has been made, according to E! Online.

In April, the New York chef denied the allegations, which included a claim reported by the New York Post's Page Six that he had a three-year relationship with his assistant Elyse Tirrell.

Flay did not appear to notice the sign during his presentation.

“Honestly, to be the first chef to get a star is really, truly an amazing milestone,” Flay said, according to People.

The couple had been at odds over their prenuptial agreement as March’s lawyer Deborah Lands previously told E! that there are “profound issues” with the contract.

“We will continue to refrain from responding to the continued efforts by certain parties to spread rumors and innuendo,” a Flay representative told the celebrity gossip site. “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 pre-nuptial agreement that was agreed to over a decade ago and never amended during the marriage.”

Following the couple’s breakup, rumors spread linking Flay to fellow Dood Network star Giada de Laurentiis, but her representative vehemently denied the gossip.

“Back in December, Giada had dinner at Bellato with her agent,” the representative told E! “Bobby Flay was also having dinner with some friends and dropped by Giada's table to say hi. They did not have dinner, nor was there any touching going on.”
