There is troubling brewing for VH1 producers - several cast members of Love & Hip-Hop: New York held off participating in photo and video shoots in a bid to renegotiate their contract.

TMZ reported that the entire cast of Love & Hip-Hop New York were scheduled to film a preview trailer for next season, but half of them did not attend because they are protesting their recent contract negotiations.

A source said the cast mates that did show up to the shoot eventually left because they too felt they had been stiffed with their revised contracts. The protesters are seeking a raise, according to a report Some of the show's stars want their rate of pay double that they initially negotiated.

The insider added that the LHHNY stars are also disappointed with the way they were portrayed in season 3. They reportedly would like to contribute in the decision-making process of what will end up in the final edited version before it is aired.

Sources connected to the show also revealed that VH1 producers have met with the disgruntled cast mates in secret meetings. The workers on strike plan to "stick to their guns" and hold out as long as necessary until they get what they want.

The show's executive producer Mona Scott-Young, who hosts the reunion shows for LHHNY, is reportedly is not involved in the process that includes salary negotiations.

A rep for VH1 has yet to comment on the report.
