My Kitchen Rules – Pete Evans Is Feuding With His Brother Dave

Pete Evans has had a rollercoaster last twelve months. First he split from his long term partner and mother of his children, then he found a new love in with new love Nicky Watson. Now news has emerged that there has been a bust up between the My Kitchen Rules judge and his brother and business partner Dave.

The Sunday Telegraph states:

MY KITCHEN Rules judge Pete Evans has walked out on the restaurant that made him famous following a bitter family feud with his business partner and brother, Dave.

While the celebrity chef still holds shares in the empire he built with his brother, The Sunday Telegraph can reveal the 38-year-old is no longer a “working partner” in the Hugos Group – which owns trendy Kings Cross nightspot Hugos Lounge and Hugos Bar Pizza.

It is understood their relationship has grown so tense, the high-profile brothers are no longer on speaking terms.

“For the past five years, Pete has had less and less to do with the business as he spends 10 months a year working full time on MKR and his other television and book commitments,” a Hugos Group spokeswoman said in a statement to The Sunday Telegraph.

“Due to the fact Pete is no longer a working partner, Hugos Group is in discussions on how to best move forward.”

Family feud? Sounds like a job for Dr.Phil.

Hope Manu’s girlfriend can afford an interpreter.

Judging by the Telegraph’s picture Coles isn’t where the chefs shop.

First his partner and children and now his brother – I think his ego has become engorged and no longer fits his head.

He’d better mend his bridges because he’ll need his family when his fame reaches it’s expiry date.

Georgie- I was thinking along the very same lines as you…he does seem to have got a bit “big for his britches”…;-)

Sue, can you share your definition of a ‘proper girlfriend’?

6 Culinary Boner { 02.13.12 at 10:21 am }

Racist much, Sue??
What makes you think a woman of Asian heritage is not a “proper girlfriend”.

7 sue N { 02.13.12 at 10:25 am }

please NOTE- “sue” is NOT me !!!!! OMFG- what is wrong with this person?????

I removed the racist comment seriously the white Australia policy ended decades ago.

Thanks RR, no need to read comments of that nature –
back on topic, sadly Im guessing a lot of jealousy follows success – or maybe Pete has no time and work load all falling brother’s shoulders – life isnt a smooth sail ride thats for sure lol

“engorged” *snicker* – the operative word here

11 Georgie { 02.13.12 at 2:21 pm }

CB – when you look up ‘inextricably’ (as in linked to the ego) in Cambridge Dictionaries Online, you’ll notice an item on the menu banner on the top left of the screen titled ‘Tools’.
