ELIZABETH, IN (WAVE) – The Paula Deen buffet located in a Kentuckiana casino will close following accusations the celebrity chef made racial slurs.

Caesars Entertainment Corporation announced on Wednesday it will not renew the corporation's business relationship with Paula Deen Enterprises.

Caesars operates four Paula Deen themed restaurants, including a buffet in Horseshoe Southern Indiana Casino.

Horseshoe released at statement saying:

"In light of today's announcement regarding Caesar Entertainment Corporation and Paula Deen Enterprises mutual decision to not renew the two companies business relationship, Horseshoe Southern Indiana will announce plans for a new buffet in the near future."

Deen has been in the spotlight after she admitted to using the N-word during a past lawsuit deposition.

A release from Caesars said it intends to rebrand the current Paula Deen themed restaurants in the coming months.
