“Shark Tank” star Daymond John has filed for a temporary restraining order against former contestants after they claimed he tried to cut them out of their due profits.
The celebrity investor requested the order against Al “Bubba” Baker, his wife, Sabrina Baker, and their daughter, Brittani Bo Baker, who have publicly claimed that John attempted to overtake their Bubba’s Q Boneless Baby Back Ribs truck.
John’s spokesman, Zach Rosenfield, denied the claims made by the Baker family and explained why his client is pursuing such an extreme request.
According to Rosenfield, there have been “repeated attempts to give the Bakers the ability to correct their violations.”

“It is unfortunate that it has come to this,” he told “Entertainment Tonight.”
“This temporary restraining order is due to the Bakers’ blatant actions to undermine a business partnership and the legal parameters they agreed to four years ago.
“Their belief that they can unwind poor business decisions through slanderous social media posts and articles will no longer be tolerated,” Rosenfield’s statement continued.
The family claimed John, 54, went on to revise the terms of the investment, instead offering $100,000 for 35 percent of the company. He also allegedly wanted to take the company into business with Rastelli Foods Group.
The Bakers further alleged that they have only seen around 4 percent of the $16 million in revenue and claimed Al specifically had been intentionally excluded from meetings and decisions once John came aboard.
In addition to John’s denials, Rastelli Foods Group also has filed for a temporary restraining order against the Bakers.
