Bobby Flay and Stephanie March wound up back in court to argue over steak

Bobby Flay and Stephanie March may have finalized their divorce, but they’re not done fighting.

The famous couple found themselves back in court this week, months after finalizing their split back in July, to argue over something that seems pretty ridiculous: some videos of the two of them cooking steak.

But according to March, the videos are much more than that — she says they constitute Flay violating their divorce agreement by using her image to make a profit, something the pair agreed not to do when they ended their marriage. March filed the motion last month asking for more than $100,000 from Flay for the footage, which was shot before their split, but has yet to air on the Food Network.

But Flay’s legal team argued that he doesn’t owe March anything for the videos, since they were shot before the divorce and he can’t control whether or not the Food Network decides to air the footage.

"My client has made it very clear that he has no control over what the Food Network does," his lawyer said "This is not about the agreement, it's not really about justice. It's about revenge."

Ultimately, the judge was on Flay’s side and dismissed March’s motion, along with another that she had filed asking Flay to pay her $14,000 in moving fees from when she moved out of their shared home in Manhattan over the summer.

"These videos at issue are the flank steak crostini, flank steak guacamole and the grilled sweet potatoes?" Justice Matthew Cooper told the courtroom. "[It] sounds like the kind of case that should be in small claims court."

After the ruling, March’s attorney released a statement, saying, "This motion was simply about enforcing a previously agreed upon contract and while we are disappointed with this decision, we believe that these breaches are real. Stephanie continues to abide by the terms of the divorce agreement, and we expect Mr. Flay will do the same going forward."
