Pawn Stars Sued For $5 Million By Talent Agency

by at . Comments

It's been an interesting week for the guys from Pawn Stars.

Not only where they fined for trashing a campground but now Richard B. Harrison, Richard K. Harrison, Richard C. Harrison and Austen Russell have a much bigger problem.

They are subject to a whopping $5 million lawsuit.

Pawn Stars Cast

Venture IAB Inc. talent agency claims they lost that massive amount in commissions based on its 10 percent interest in their income, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The agency, who signed a contract and helped them score the History Channel series in 2007, say that network execs steered the Pawn Star cast toward another agent.

Rival Michael Camacho ultimately repped the cast.

In early 2010, the History Channel's top executive Nancy Dubuc and development and programming VP Mary Donahue allegedly "interfered" with the written contract.

"As a result of the intentional interference with Agency Agreements, Plaintiff has lost millions of dollars of income," the suit alleges, seeking $5 million in commissions.

Venture IAB says the Harrisons were urged to terminate their agreement "so that Dubuc's and Donahue's friend and agent, Michael Camacho of UTA, could take over."

In unrelated but similar news, a Storage Wars lawsuit was also filed this week by one of its best known personalities, alleging that the entire show is basically fake.
