The wife of a Hamptons hedge financier is embroiled in a nasty court case after her former personal chief claimed that she had made racist remarks against him and his girlfriend.

Chef Brian Villanueva & # 39; s lawsuit against Lisa Falcone – the wife of Philip Falcone – was filed in the Manhattan Court on Wednesday and claims that the comments were made during a dinner for 13 people.

Villanueva claims that Falcone is doing everything to disguise the nature of the conversation, including the proclamation that the chef's girlfriend was more articulated than her & # 39; black friends & # 39; – Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz music couple.

& # 39; Your girlfriend speaks very well. She seems educated. I would describe her as a chocolate-covered marshmallow, & Lisa Falcone reportedly said at dinner on July 14, the New York Daily News reports.

Villanueva, who is Filipino, was offended by the comment, but Falcone did not notice it.

& # 39; Use the word & # 39; at home n — a & # 39; with your girlfriend? & # 39; she apparently asked, describing the suit. & # 39; I am Puerto Rican and grew up in Harlem, Spain so I can talk like that. & # 39;

The chief claims that he confronted Falcone with her comments the next day.

Reportedly, Falcone said: & I meant that she really speaks eloquently. Alicia (Keys) doesn't speak that way.

& # 39; She had no education and was only discovered by (record producer) Clive Davis when she was 15 years old. Swizz (Beatz) definitely does not speak that way either. & # 39;

Villanueva resigned later in the day and claims that Falcone then began to close his own ethnicity.

& # 39; You are not ethnic like black people and Puerto Rican people. You are only a minority, & she said when she was confronted. & # 39; Talk to my black friends. They will tell you that I am not a racist. & # 39;

Philip Falcone said he would check the security system for audio from the conversation that took place in the kitchen, the suit says.

But Villanueva claims that the next time they spoke, Philip Falcone refused to pay the chef's $ 4,230 in unpaid salary unless he and his girlfriend signed the NDA's.

& # 39; Philip Falcone told (Villanueva) that the only way he would pay the claimant money that he owed him legally was if both he and his girlfriend agreed to sign agreements that they would never talk about the comments of the defendant Lisa Falcone for the rest of their lives or the fact that they have entered into such agreements, & # 39; argues the suit.

Philip Falcone is the founder of Harbinger Capital and LightSquared and was the 1565th richest person in the world in 2014
