HGTV ‘Fixer Upper’ Star Sued for Fraud

HGTV has several home improvement, renovation and fixer upper shows that are big hits with a large television audience. I know, my wife watches a lot of them and when I told her that ‘Fixer Upper’ star Chip Gaines was being sued for defrauding former business partners, she was shocked, especially since Gaines professes to be a Christian.

“Fixer Upper” star Chip Gaines is being sued by two former business partners in a million-dollar fraud lawsuit.

According to court documents obtained by KWTX, John L. Lewis and Richard L. Clark, former co-owners of Magnolia Realty, claim Gaines bought them out of the company two days before HGTV picked up “Fixer Upper” which “prominently featured the ‘Magnolia’ brand name.”

Lewis and Clark filed their 24-page lawsuit Wednesday in state district court in Waco, Texas, and are seeking more than $1 million in damages and non-monetary relief, KWTX reports.

IF Gaines is guilty, then remember that everyone one of us, including Christians are sinners and subject to temptations. Don’t judge the religion on the action of Christians, because if you do, no religion will be good enough for you.
