There's bad news for the cast of the History Channel's hit "Pawn Stars" as they're being sued.

Wayne Jefferies, the ex-manager of the "Pawn Stars" cast, is suing for an alleged breach of contract, according to TMZ.

The reality television show stars the workers and owners of the Las Vegas Gold and Silver Pawn: Rick Harrison with his son Corey, his father the Old Man, and fan favorite Chumlee. Each episode shows unique antiques and artifacts that are bought and sold every day.

Jefferies says that he helped the crew of Gold and Silver pawn get their contract with A&E and the History Channel in 2007.

In a report by Jefferies he states that the success of the show came from his efforts citing that the Gold and Silver owners had previously tried to make a deal for a reality television show of the same premise, but it didn't get picked up.

In early 2012, A&E found out that Jefferies had leaked information on a spinoff series called "Cajun Pawn Stars" causing network executives to caution keeping him as the manager of the original cast. The network then supposedly convinced the owners of Gold and Silver to let Jefferies go as their manager which Jefferies is using as due reason for a breach of contract.

Jefferies is seeking unspecified amount for damages from the cast as well as executives from A&E and the History Channel.

The hit series "Pawn Stars" is in its sixth season. The show has become a sensation as it sits on top of the ratings for all other History Channel series and is the second-highest rated reality show. The show can be seen Monday nights at 10pm on the History Channel.
