Richard Harrison from 'Pawn Stars' cut son out of his will
The late star of the reality show Pawn Stars Richard 'Old Man' Harrison is said to have left out one of his children from his will. Initially, Christopher Harrison had been part of the will until last year.
According to The Blast, the circumstances that caused Christopher to be removed haven’t been stated. Richard died on June 25, from Parkinson’s Disease.
Richard 'Old Man' Harrison’s original will named his wife, JoAnne, and their three children, Joseph, Rick, and Christopher, as beneficiaries. However, in 2017, Richard, 77, amended the document and excluded Christopher from the will.
Rick, one of the star’s sons who worked with him on Pawn Stars said, "The family had previously discussed this information and it is a private matter." He was also responsible for opening the Gold & Silver Pawn store with his father in 1988.
