Anthony Strangis Responds to Sarma Melngailis’ Bad Vegan Claims

Sarma Melngailis told his side of the story in Netflix bad vegan and now Antoine Strangis shares his.

In an exclusive statement to E! News, Strangis’ attorney, Sam Karlineropened up about the Netflix docuseries and his client’s connection to the celebrity chef, revealing the exes are “not in touch.”

“He continued to live his life,” Karliner explained. “He’s got a job, uses her name, it’s behind him and she’s behind him.”

bad veganwhich premiered March 16, chronicles the time Melngailis owned New York’s vegan hot spot Pure Food and Wine, and her subsequent marriage to Strangis, whom she accuses of exerting “coercive control” over her and to make promises, especially that he could make her beloved dog, Leon, immortal. The two were eventually arrested in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee in May 2016.

The fact that Strangis moved on is part of the reason he “didn’t want to get involved,” according to Karliner. β€œHe pleaded guilty, he admitted it and he did it long before Sarma,” the lawyer continued. “His case was resolved probably almost a year before Sarma’s.”
