The History Channel's Pawn Stars is being sued for a whopping $5 million!
The talent agency Venture IAB Inc. signed Richard "Rick" Harrison, Richard "The Old Man" Harrison, Richard "Big Hoss" Harrison, and Austin "Chumlee" Russell as clients in 2007 and again in 2009.
According to the talent agency, they played a part in the deal that led to Pawn Stars, which premiered July 19, 2009 on History.
However, just six months later, the stars of Pawn Stars terminated their contracts with Venture IAB after alegedly being influenced by two Pawn Stars execs, Mary Donahue and Nancy Dubuc, to sign with a friend of theirs, Michael Camacho.

Now that Pawn Stars is a huge hit, the talent agency is a
little lot miffed about losing out on that paycheck. Can you blame them?
According to the court documents, Venture IAB Inc. is seeking $5 million in lost commissions and damages from The History Channel, Mary Dobahue, Nancy Dubuc, and Michael Camacho.
In response to the lawsuit, Michael Camacho said, “I was in charge of unscripted television at UTA when his agency signed several of the principal characters of Pawn Stars. I have never met or spoken to the former agents or the clients and was unaware of any claim.”
