Chip and Joanna Gaines are facing a million dollar lawsuit over a fence, RadarOnline.com has learned!
The Fixer Upper stars are being sued by Head Properties, LLC for putting a barricade between their properties ahead of Magnolia's Silobration early last month.
Head Properties reported in the explosive suit obtained by Radar that they purchased the property next to the Magnolia Silos in July 2016. They were aware that the former owner had signed a one-year lease in October 2015 to allow part of the property “to be used as a parking lot for Magnolia Market," and that the lease expired on September 30, 2016.
They began negotiations to renew the lease with Chip when they bought the property, but were unsuccessful.
"Plaintiff continued to allow access, without charge, to Defendant Magnolia Silos, LLC and its numerous patrons who continue to park on the property while shopping at Magnolia Markets," the complaint read. “Nevertheless, Plaintiff was expecting to begin charging a parking fee to these visitors starting on Monday, October, 3, 2016."
"However, on the morning of Monday, October 3, 2016, Defendants erected a barrier across the 7th Street alleyway at the intersection of Webster Avenue, effectively blocking any traffic, pedestrian, motor vehicle or otherwise, from using the 7th Street alleyway to access Plaintiff's property."
In turn, Head Properties asked a judge for a temporary restraining order requiring Chip, 41, and Joanna, 38, to remove the fence in question. They also asked for a permanent injunction “enjoining Defendants from blocking or otherwise erecting a barrier to prevent access to Plaintiff's property."
The company also asked for damages between $200,000 and $1 million.
Magnolia filed a denial on October 31, 2016 and requested that the temporary injunction be denied on November 3, 2016.
David G. Tekell, the lawyer for Head Properties, told Radar exclusively that they are still “waiting on the judge's decision."
He insisted that his client did not want to discuss the matter any further, simply stating, “some cases settle. Some cases go on."
