A source told E! News that March had “tried everything she could do to save the marriage."
Flay, 50, and March, 40, have no children. Multiple reports suggest that the two are fighting over the prenup agreement they signed before getting married on Feb. 20, 2005.
The divorce news comes after gossip linked the workaholic restaurateur to both “Mad Men” actress January Jones and Food Network colleague Giada De Laurentiis. He denied being involved with either.
“Bobby Flay’s reputation as a Casanova didn’t escape his soon-to-be-ex wife,” writes The New York Daily News.
“An insider tells us Stephanie March was well aware of the persistent rumors about the superstar chef’s infidelity and even confronted him over scuttlebutt that he had an affair with ... January Jones.”
This is Flay’s third divorce and March’s first.
E! reported that March is currently taking care of her mother, who was recently diagnosed with cancer and is being treated in New York.
