The Original Soup Man chain is embroiled in a heated legal battle with creditors of a bankrupt company called Soup Kitchen International, which owned the Soup Man name first and claim they were shadily bilked out of it, writes the Post. While these guys duke it out, Al Yeganeh, the basis for Seinfeld’s iconic Soup Nazi, isn’t weighing in on the matter at all. He reportedly hates conflict even more than he hates people breaking his soupy rules and is no doubt home fretting over a bowl of minestrone. [NYP, Related]
