Gordon Ramsay splashes £4m on Los Angeles homeNew start ... Gordon Ramsay's new LA homeFlynetPublished: Today at 01:48
TELLY chef Gordon Ramsay has paid £4.3million for a swish Los Angeles base as he tries to put a tough year in the UK behind him.
The Hell's Kitchen star, 45, bought the spectacular five-bedroom family home near Beverly Hills in November and has just picked up the keys.
It gives Ramsay and wife Tana, 37, a base to take advantage of his US popularity.
In Britain he fought a bitter court battle against father-in-law Chris Hutcheson and other members of his wife's family last year.
It followed the sacking of Chris, 63, as chief executive of his restaurant empire.
Falling revenues and several restaurant closures have also hit Ramsay's business.
But his US TV career is going from strength to strength. Masterchef is returning for a third series and new show Hotel Hell launches on Fox in March.
A new Ramsay restaurant is to open in Las Vegas this spring.
A source said: "Gordon will be spending more time in America.
"A family home in LA means they can stop living out of suitcases."
The Ramsays will also be able to see pals David and Victoria Beckham. But they will keep their home in South West London and their four kids will go to school in the UK.
