I’m just passing on the news here, but I thought you NYC’ers would want to know about this. Lula’s is in danger! From the New York Post:
A bitter divorce battle between the co-owners of a popular vegan East Village ice cream shop is threatening to shutter the hotspot, court records show.
Derek Hackett and ex-wife Blythe Boyd, both of Manhattan, opened Lula’s Apothecary in 2008 while still married — quickly establishing a loyal following that included Paul McCartney’s ex, Heather Mills.
But the couple got divorced in 2012 — and earlier this month, Hackett filed papers in Manhattan Supreme Court demanding the business be dissolved because Boyd is hoarding the profits for herself.
What do you think? Is this just a tactic and Lula’s will never close? I don’t know much about divorce but it seems like a messy and tragic business. It will be sad if Lula’s closes though, I know many a vegan who cherish that spot.
