After the world watched Paula Deen's empire come crashing down around her last June, most people thought that was the end of the Southern celebrity chef. However, according to a new article published my People.com on Feb. 12, Deen may be making a comeback.

People.com reports that Deen recently received an investment from a Arizona-based company called Najafi Cos. worth an estimated $75 million to $100 million. Reports indicate that the deal was struck in order to help Deen breakaway from her current business model and to re-establish her brand.

Deen made national headlines in June of 2013 when she admitted to using racial slurs in a court deposition she gave in a lawsuit she was facing. Although Deen openingly apologized for what she said, her business partners like the Food Network started dropping her to separate themselves from the negative attention she was drawing.

The lawsuit that started so much trouble for Deen was officially dismissed in August 2013 after a judge approved a deal that was struck in the case.
