Indeed, Sr. had his son film episodes of the upcoming American Chopper with him for one reason and one reason only the family insider said.

“Paul Sr. is broke. His house is in foreclosure, he has multiple lawsuits against him. He had to do something for money. So, he filmed with Paul Jr. just for the show. There is nothing real about their relationship. He did it all for money and fame.”

Paul Jr. blamed his father for their broken relationship the family insider told

Paul Teutul Sr.

“He has told other family members that his dad has serious mental issues and he wished he would get help.”

In his 2017 book, The Build, Paul Jr. revealed that he and Paul Sr. always fought.

"I think we have tried more at certain times than others to get along well, but our relationship has always been one of adversity,” he penned. “When I reflect back over my life, I cannot say that my father and I have ever had a good relationship.”

Paul Jr. wrote: “I think my father became somewhat of a monster because of the show; he took on the persona of “Senior” after we became big. I once ran across a list of ten descriptions of a parent. If a check mark could be written next to three of the then, then the parent could be considered narcissistic. I checked all ten for my father.”
