Pawn Stars star Rick Harrison allegedly divorced his wife Deanna last year.

On August 16, TMZ reported that they discovered legal documents that they obtained concerning their divorce. Rick apparently filed for divorce in Clark County, Nevada on July 1, 2020. They were married for almost seven years.

According to the legal document, the couple’s “tastes, mental dispositions, views, likes, and dislikes have become so divergent that they have become incompatible in marriage.” Apparently, there was no hope for any sort of reconciliation or a way to continue their relationship.

Deanna first requested alimony. However, according to the latest document, they reached a settlement in September 2020. This includes alimony, support, and property.

The former couple didn’t have any children together. Rick told the outlet, “I got 3 great daughters out of it,” as Deanna had now adult children from a previous relationship. Deanna and the Pawn Stars star were both divorced twice before tying the knot.

“[The marriage] didn’t work out and [the divorce] was a mutual decision,” he added.

Back in 2012, the couple announced their engagement. They wed in an intimate ceremony in Laguna Beach, California on July 21, 2013. Fellow Pawn Stars member Austin “Chumlee” Russell was the ring bearer. Additionally, Counting Cars star Danny Koker performed the ceremony after becoming an ordained minister.

‘Pawn Stars’ New Season

Rick Harrison has been on the show since its inception. It first debuted back in 2009 on The History Channel. The first episode of the new season debuted on Saturday, August 14 at 9 PM ET, 8 PM CT.

In an interview with Fox News, Harrison believes that he realized what makes his show so popular amongst its fan base.

“First off, most reality shows are pretty much scripted,” he explained. “Mine is not. And it’s truly different every week.”

Another aspect that he believes helps in viewership is its spontaneity. He never knows what will turn up in his shop. Some of it is even educational and it makes learning history, fun!

“You can have a show about motorcycles or cars, but there’s only so much you can do with a motorcycle or a car every week,” he admitted. “And people want to learn, but they don’t want to feel like they’re sitting around with a professor.”

Although they do get the regular odd or unusual items, it never gets old for the crew.

“I get so much weird stuff,” he said with a chuckle. “Weird is normal to me. I mean, you end up with things like a 100-year-old bicycle with wooden wheels. But I love it. There’s always a history lesson behind it. And I give it a Rick Harrison spin to it. And you always get a laugh out of it.”

He plans to continue the show “as long as it’s fun and I still have a blast.”

“One of the greatest things about my show is that it continues to be interesting. It continues to surprise me,” he concluded.
