Famed New Orleans restaurateur Al Copeland left a legacy of litigation stemming from his hair enhancements when he died last March.
As reported by sister publication New Orleans City Business , Copeland’s estate is being sued for $126,000 for charges for "wigs, toupees, full-head hairpieces and associated services." The suit claims an employee of San Diego’s Ultimate Hair Dynamics would travel with the jet-setting chef to keep his phony mane in top condition.
According to UHD’s lawsuit, the estate’s administrator, son Al Copeland Jr., refused to pay the accrued hair repair bills.
