Richard “Old Man” Harrison Cut Son Out of Will Before Death

If you’re a fan of the popular History Channel series Pawn Stars, then you probably know that the men of the Harrison family don’t always get along.

But while the on-camera conflicts are mostly good-natured, it seems there’s some serious bad blood behind the scenes.

Family patriarch and beloved Pawn Stars co-star Richard “Old Man” Harrison passed away last month at the age of 77.

Now, new information about Harrison’s will has prompted questions about his relationship with his children.

Harrison worked alongside his middle son, Rick Harrison, with whom he co-owned Gold & Silver Pawn Shop from 1989 until his death.

But it’s his relationship with youngest son Chris that’s making headlines this week.

For reasons that remain mysterious, Richard Sr. cut Chris out of his will entirely.

“I would like to express my love and affection for Christopher Keith Harrison,” reads the document obtained by Fox News. 

“However, for purposes of this Will, I have intentionally and with full knowledge failed to provide for him and his issue.”

The Harrison family has declined to elaborate. 

“The family had previously discussed this information and it is a private matter,” Rick Jr. said in a statement released today.

The younger Harrison previously paid tribute to his father in a moving eulogy:

“Richard Benjamin ‘The Old Man’ Harrison passed away this morning surrounded by those he loved. He will be tremendously missed by our family, the team at Gold & Silver Pawn and his many fans the world over,” reads a press release issued by Rick Jr. at the time.

“He was my hero and I was fortunate to get a very cool ‘Old Man’ as my dad. 

“That I got to share him with so many others and they got to see what a great family man he was is something I am grateful to have experienced with him.”

Harrison added:

“He lived a very full life and through the History television show Pawn Stars touched the lives of people all over teaching them the value of loving your family, hard work and humor.

“We appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers and ask that we are provided some privacy at this time.”

Richard Harrison, “Old Man” from Pawn Stars, Dead at 77

Very sad news today out of the television world:

Richard Harrison, the co-owner and founder of Rick Harrison’s Gold & Silver Pawn Shop and a lead cast member on History Channel’s Pawn Stars, passed away on Monday morning.

He was 77 years old.

Harrison was known as “Old Man” to all involved and to all who watched this long-running reality series, and his death was confirmed by his son today in a lengthy and emotional statement.

It reads as follows:

Richard Benjamin ‘The Old Man’ Harrison passed away this morning surrounded by those he loved. He will be tremendously missed by our family, the team at Gold & Silver Pawn and his many fans the world over.

He was my hero and I was fortunate to get a very cool ‘Old Man’ as my dad.

That I got to share him with so many others and they got to see what a great family man he was is something I am grateful to have experienced with him.

He lived a very full life and through the History television show Pawn Stars touched the lives of people all over teaching them the value of loving your family, hard work and humor.

We appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers and ask that we are provided some privacy at this time.

We do not know Harrison’s cause of death at the moment.

He hadn’t appeared much at all over the course of the past couple years on the aforementioned show, however, hinting at some kind of illness.

Old Man moved to Las Vegas way back in the1980s and opened the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop with his son, Rick, in 1989.

Producers eventually convinced the father and son to star in a show about their lives and their business, with Old Man cementing himself as a fan favorite ever since Pawn Stars premiered in July of 2009.

Says History Channel executives in a statement:

“We are deeply saddened by the loss of our friend Richard ‘The Old Man’ Harrison, a beloved member of the HISTORY and ‘Pawn Stars’ family. 

“He will be greatly missed for his wisdom and candor.”

A veteran of the United States Navy, Harrison was beloved for his witty comebacks, tough demeanor… and for his keen eye for picking treasures out of trash.

He had an impressive knowledge of history and often talked about his military background.

The pawn shop itself also shared a message on Facebook on Monday.

This is what it says:

It is with heavy hearts that we acknowledge the passing of Richard Benjamin Harrison (known as ‘The Old Man’ to Pawn Stars fans the world over) this morning. He was surrounded by loving family this past weekend and went peacefully.

The team at Gold & Silver Pawn and the Pawn Stars family is grieving his loss.

He will be remembered as the best father, grandfather and great-grandfather you could have by his family and by fans as the sometimes grumpy (always loving, however), often wisecracking, and voice of absolute reason on the History television show Pawn Stars.

Services are pending and the family appreciates your prayers and kind words.

Pawn Stars is currently in Season 15.

We send our condolences to the friends, family members and loved ones of Richard Harrison.

May he rest in peace.

Chris Harrison Teases “Most Ridiculous Fight” in History on Bachelorette Premiere

DING! DING! DING!

According to Chris Harrison, it is about to be on next Monday night.

Between whom? This is the question we’re now left to ponder.

Earlier this week, the reality show host with the absolute most stopped and talked to Entertainment Tonight about the May 28 premiere of The Bachelorette.

It will kick off at 8/7c on ABC, but it sounds as if we ought to say the show will PUNCH off instead.

Just consider how Harrison teased the premiere in his chat with the aforementioned gossip and news outlet:

“Maybe the most ridiculous fight you’ve ever seen in the history of our show, which is saying a lot.

It’s just magnificent to watch.

“It’s going to be one of those [seasons where] you’re watching through your fingers because you’re embarrassed for everybody involved, but you can’t stop watching.”

Now THAT’S what we call a tease.

Is it any wonder Chris Harrison is the very best at what he does?

While recent The Bachelorette spoilers have actually revealed the final four men chosen by Becca Kufrin, ABC announced the FULL list of all 28 suitors on Thursday.

We’ve posted their official portraits above and referenced their official occupations.

There are multiple football players… one sports analyst… a guy who plays the banjo… and some dude who says he’s a social media participant.

We somehow doubt the latter is involved in this fight.

“The arrivals are great because, for the guys, it’s very much out of our comfort zone to make these grand entrances,” Harrison also said of the premiere, adding:

“We make fools of ourselves, that’s what we do. And some of these guys do just that.”

Kufrin, of course, has quite the backstory when it comes to this franchise.

She was proposed to by Arie on the season finale of the latest Bachelor season — and then dumped by Arie on the After the Rose Special.

Becca responded in that moment the same way anyone in her situation would respond (Are you f-cking kidding me, she asked Arie many times), but has since handled the public break-up with maturity and grace.

“He’s a good person, I don’t think he’s a monster and purposely did this to hurt me and make me feel this way,” Kurfin told People Magazine shortly after The Bachelor season concluded, adding at the time:

“I don’t think he thought it through, but I don’t think he did it maliciously to break my heart.”

Whatever.

The guy seems like a giant douchebag in our opinion.

But Arie is the past and one of the 28 men featured above is the future.

“Let’s do the damn thing,” Kufrin excitedly says in the following Bachelorette preview, making it clear that she’s ready to move on.

And if she’s ready to move on, so we are. Let’s do the damn thing indeed!

Check out the fun teaser now:
