Paul Teutul Sr. couldn’t let his bitter feud with his son go, and he's now shut him out of the bike shop, has exclusively learned.

Paul Sr. ended up recruiting a German fabricator to build the bikes instead of his own son,” a family source told

“The guy doesn’t speak one word of f***ing English, at all," continued the insider. "He’s going to be in the new season, and Paul Jr. feels like his dad hired him to replace him."

While Paul Sr.recently reunited with his sons to shoot new episodes of American Chopper, it's "because he needs the money," revealed the source, who warns Paul Sr. might want to think twice about cutting his son loose.

Paul Jr. puts everything together — he’s the brains and the creative artist behind the bikes," insisted the source. "Paul Jr. is the reason OCC has been so successful."

But “Paul Sr. has a real f**king big ego," blasted the source. "He doesn’t want his son to shine more than him."

In his 2017 book, The Build, Paul Jr. revealed that he and his dad have 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 wrote. “When I reflect back over my life, I cannot say that my father and I have ever had a good relationship.”

Paul Jr. also noted: “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.”

Despite the bad blood and drama between father and son, the show will go on.

“Paul Jr. is willing to do anything for his dad,” the family insider said.

American Chopper returns to Discovery on May 28.
