By

In yet another blow to Paula Deen, Caesars Entertainment Corporation announced Wednesday that it will be ending its relationship with the embattled celebrity chef.
Caesars (CZR, Fortune 500) operates Paula Deen-themed restaurants at four of its casinos: Horseshoe Southern Indiana, Harrah’s Tunica in Mississippi, Harrah’s Joliet in Illinois and Harrah’s Cherokee in North Carolina.
“While we appreciate Paula’s sincere apologies for statements she made in her past … we have mutually decided that it is in the best interests of both parties to part ways at this time,” said Jan Jones Blackhurst, executive vice president of communications and government affairs for Caesars Entertainment.
