Jamie Oliver’s CEO and member of his family, is said to be tarnishing the celebrity chef’s reputation. In an exclusive to The Times UK, a ‘friend of Jamie Oliver’s’ tells all about CEO and brother-in-law Paul Hunt.
Married to Anne-Marie, Oliver’s sister, Hunt was appointed to the position in 2014 and has received criticism over his abilities to run the restaurant empire. Friends of Oliver say that his niceties and loyalty to his family has made it difficult for him to see the truth.
While every gossip magazine across England has picked up the story, Jamie’s side is succinct and in complete support of Hunt.
Oliver responds to critics in one tweet:

As the ‘all telling source’ remains unnamed, it is uncertain how factual these accounts of Hunt are. We appreciate Oliver’s employees continual praise of his warm and friendly personality and hope the brand bounces back quickly.
