Chip Gaines, the Waco entrepreneur who stars with wife Joanna in the HGTV show "Fixer Upper," is accused of allegedly defrauding his former real estate partners by buying them out just days before announcing that the television show had been picked up by a major network.
John Lewis and Richard Clark filed a lawsuit Thursday against Chip Gaines in state district court in Waco — about 100 miles north of Austin — seeking more than $1 million, the Waco Tribune reports.
Gaines’ attorney denied wrongdoing.
