(KCENTV) Two former co-owners of Magnolia Realty filed a lawsuit against HGTV Fixer Upper star Chip Gaines for buying their stakes in the company two days before announcing the hit television show.
John L. Lewis and Richard L. Clark are demanding more than $1 million and their ownership stakes back -- or compensation for what their stakes would be worth now.
The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in McLennan County's 170th Judicial District Court. It names Fixer Upper production company High Noon Production, LLC. -- along with Scripps Networks and Scripps Networks Interactive, which operate cable network HGTV.
