Did Jennifer Esposito Leave Town Amid $43 Million Gluten-Free Bakery Lawsuit?

Celiac.com 06/27/2016 - With her gluten-free bakery "Jennifer's Way" facing a $43 million lawsuit from investors, including her own husband, British model Louis Dowler, former "Blue Bloods" star Jennifer Esposito has reportedly skipped town for an "undetermined amount of time" in Denmark.

Esposito's investment partners filed their suit in March, alledging, among other things, that Esposito's bakery is failing, and that she redirected the company's website to her personal blog and told consumers the products couldn't be trusted.

"Esposito has instilled and promoted a groundless and downright false sense of fear that the very same products with the same recipes, coming from the same facility, that she once stood behind, are now unsafe to consume," the lawsuit reads.

Esposito was previously married to actor Bradley Cooper and engaged two more times before she married Dowler in 2014. In addition to the suit, she is now also in the process of divorcing Dowler, who is, as noted above, one of the investment partners who brought the suit against her.

Esposito made headlines in 2012, when she was put on indefinite leave from the CBS show "Blue Bloods" after informing the network of her celiac disease diagnosis.

According to Esposito's tweets: "CBS. . . PUT me on unpaid leave and has blocked me from working anywhere else after my doc said u needed a reduced schedule due to celiac."

According to a statement by CBS, "Jennifer has informed us that she is only available to work on a very limited part-time schedule. As a result, she's unable to perform the demands of her role and we regretfully had to put her character on a leave of absence . . . We hope that she will be able to return at some point in the future."

Nikki Everett shared this video with Celiac.com. It indeed shows Ms. Esposito walking around in her bakery after this original story broke, however, since the story was essentially accusing her of avoiding service of a lawsuit, the best way for her to prove that she isn't avoiding service would be to post a video of her getting served, or of the papers after service: https://www.facebook.com/JennifersWayJE/videos/1085985748129897/

Gluten Dude was supporting her, he knows her, and I trust him. I will continue to support her. Lets not convict her yet.

Her husband sounds like a snake to me. My gut say he is lying and only wants easy money. Maybe some background on him would be more telling.

What is the relevance in how many times she's been married or divorce?

I want a news channel with more facts than FOX. They are known for their lying. I want real news.

Most wines are gluten free, the introduction to gluten from them comes from the cask in most cases, where some companies still use wheat pastes as glue.

I was recently and surprisingly diagnosed June 1. I am in my late 50s and have two children ages 21 and 19. I understand Celiac is heredity. I have no physical symptoms which is why I was surprised at the diagnosis. My kids don't exhibit symptoms either. I have always been anemic and my kids...

Hi, to be declared gluten free, pasta, etc., has to be less than 20 parts per million, so there is always a possibility of cross contamination. There are a few website that you can subscribe to, so if gluten has inadvertently got into the foods, and they are recalled, they will notify you by tex...

If you go back and look at the Celiac cascade panel, it gives a value. That's what I meant by score.

I know this is a really old post but has there been any new developments in this area? I am new to the gluten free world and last night I had a glass of my favourite wine (Riunite Bianco) and I got really sick and was still sick when I woke up. I just emailed the company and will post when I...
