The ‘Old Man’ from Pawn Stars cut one of his children out of his will, according to US reports.
Star of the Vegas-based show Richard Harrison, who died last month aged 77, has three sons Rick, Christopher and Joseph.
His original will named all three along with his wife JoAnne Harrison.
However, in 2017 he amended the will to exclude his youngest son Christopher, according to court documents obtained by The Blast.
“I would like to express my love and affection for Christopher Keith Harrison,” the will reads, “however, for purposes of this Will, I have intentionally and with full knowledge failed to provide for him and his issue.”
It’s unclear why Christopher was later cut out of the will.
The documents don’t state how much Harrison’s estate was worth at the time of his death.
His son Rick announced the sad news of his dad’s death last month.
"He passed away this morning surrounded by those he loved," wrote Rick.
"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.
"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 humour."
He added: "We appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers and ask that we are provided some privacy at this time."
Richard was a former navy officer but rose to fame as the wise patriarch of the History Channel reality show which followed the working lives of three generations of one family working in a Las Vegas pawn shop.
Richard had appeared on the show since 2009, when it launched, although he made far fewer appearances in later years due to his age and declining health.
