It seems that most of rap mogul Jay Z's friends are either in prison or turning on him.

According to Page Six, Jay Z filed a lawsuit against his former personal chef, and head chef for the 40/40 Club, Mike Shand.

Jay Z hired Shand to run the sports bar's newly renovated kitchen after Shand cooked for Jigga and wife Beyonce on tour.

But after the health department shut down 40/40 earlier this year, Shand flew the coop -- taking his special recipes with him.

In court documents Jay Z's legal hounds argue that Shand's stolen recipes ended up “costing the club lost profits, loss of good will [and] alienation of clientele.” In other words, the club was hemorrhaging money (again) and Shand jumped ship rather than accept the blame for the latest failure.

On Wednesday, thousands of people -- black and white -- turned out in droves at Chick-fil-A restaurants in response to public criticism of CEO Dan Cathy who voiced his opinion on traditional marriage.

Chick-fil-A announced a record-breaking day for sales. The turnout on Wednesday smashed all records for foot traffic at any fast food restaurant chain in history.

But you wouldn't know about the biggest story of the week just by picking up a newspaper in any major city, or by watching CNN.

Atlanta-based CNN -- which gave major coverage to giant snapping turtles last month -- devoted scant coverage to the Chick-fil-A story.

It will be interesting to see how much coverage the biased media will devote to the planned gay "kiss-in" at Chick-fil-A restaurants today.

Chick-Fil-A customers turned out in droves at Chick-Fil-A restaurants to support family values in America today. Thousands of people stood in long lines at Chick-Fil-A locations in Atlanta and Texas, as concerned Christians participated in "Appreciation Day" at Chick-Fil-A.

KSDK News tweeted this photo of a line queued out the door at one Chick-Fil-A location in St. Louis. The peaceful rallies were in response to the statements of big city mayors who promised to block new Chick-Fil-A restaurants in their cities because they objected to Chick-Fil-A president Dan Cathy's anti-gay marriage stance.

Chick-Fil-A's supporters made it clear that family values are their top priority -- not who people choose to sleep with.

View more pictures from Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day after the break. The national media won't show you these pics because they choose profit over family values.

The goal for any business is to make a quick profit. But for fast food restaurants, such as Burger King and McDonald's, profit comes at a cost to public safety.

Fast food franchises looking to cut costs -- and maximize profits -- hire cheap labor, mostly high school students who don't care about your health.

Teenage fast food workers are known to brag about slipping something extra into the special sauce, and watching as unsuspecting diners eat their disgusting creations.

But a worker at a Burger King franchise in Cleveland, Ohio went one step further by posting a photo on a message board of himself standing in 2 bins of lettuce.

The employee posted the image with the caption: "This is the lettuce you eat at Burger King".

On June 25th -- Gay Pride Day -- giant cookie maker Oreo rolled out it's new Pride Oreo cookie stuffed with creamy fillings representing the colors of the gay rainbow. Oreo was careful to note that the colorful creamy fillings don't actually exist, so don't expect boxes of gay pride Oreo cookies to hit store shelves any time soon.

In a strange but true story from the Far East, a 63-year-old woman was 'impregnated' in the mouth after eating cooked calamari (squid).

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information in Bethesda, Maryland, the unidentified woman complained of a sharp pain in her mouth after eating a piece of fully cooked squid.

The woman from South Korea took the remainder of her calamari meal to a local hospital where doctors found 12 "bug-like organisms" stuck to the mucosa (skin) lining the woman's mouth.

After examining the woman, doctors found "baby cephalopods" and the "presence of the sperm bag" attached to the inside of her mouth. "The foreign bodies were later identified as squid spermatophores."

Over the weekend rumors were running rampant that Sean Comb's landmark Justin's Restaurant was closing its doors. The AJC finally confirmed the rumor yesterday. But rumors have swirled for years that Justin's was closing down.

Justin's restaurant was never really profitable in the 14 years since it opened to much fanfare on Peachtree Road in midtown. Rumor had it that Combs was just a minority owner who fronted for the real owners of the restaurant.

Justin's business really took a hit when V-103 Morning Show co-host Frank Ski opened his popular restaurant a block away from Justin's last year. Franks Ski's was the nail in the coffin for Justin's Restaurant as the Frank's eatery attracted celebrities and other VIPs.

Combs opened the restaurant in 1998 when he and his family maintained homes and a presence in the Atlanta area. Combs and Kim Porter's children attended private schools in Atlanta.

Porter moved to California when local socialite Sarah Chapman gave birth to Combs' first daughter.

Justin's restaurant's namesake, Justin Dior Combs, made headlines last week when he graduated from high school amid angry reports that his $54,000 free ride to UCLA could have gone to someone less fortunate.
