Porn stars owners being sued in Las Vegas for breach of contract.
Las Vegas promoter Wayne Jefferys alleges breach of contract by the Las Vegas Gold and Silver Pawn shop as well as it’s owners.
He was fired in January 2011 after executives with A&E found out that he had allegedly leaked information about a spinoff series called “Cajun Pawn Stars”.
A&E executives were angered by the breach and then allegedly convinced the owners of the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop to terminate Jefferies employment as their manager.
That is the basis that Jefferies is suing for breach of contract.
He is seeking an unspecified amount of money for damages from the executives of A&E and the History Channel as well as the cast.
Jefferies says that he is the one who helped the crew of the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop get their contract with A&E and the History Channel back in 2007.
Jefferies claims that the success of the reality show resulted from his efforts and he also said that the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop owners had previously tried to make a deal for a reality TV show that had the same premise but the earlier show idea didn’t get picked up.
Jefferys is being represented by two powerhouse attorney’s; Richard Schonfeld and David Chesnut.
Pawn Stars is in its six season and has become a huge ratings hit.
It is the second highest rated reality TV show according to in enstarz, right behind Jersey Shore.
The series, which debuted on July 26, 2009, focuses on the daily activities at the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas.
