Chip and Joanna Gaines' Magnolia Market failed to keep its customers safe, according to a shocking new lawsuit!

A woman was visiting the famed Silos on June 14, 2016 when she "suffered serious permanent bodily injuries as a direct result of the dangerous condition created by the height and steel rods used for the canopies which are affixed to picnic tables located in an outdoor dining area," according to court documents exclusively obtained.

"When attempting to sit down at said tables Plaintiff's had hit the low hanging and concealed steel rods thereby causing Plaintiff to suffer serious bodily injuries," the suit explained.


The woman claimed Chip and Joanna "negligently allowed the area to become dangerous" and wants $100,000 to $200,000 in damages for "reasonable and necessary medical expenses in the past" and future, physical pain and mental anguish.

The suit was filed on Feb. 13, 2017 — and the Fixer Upper couple has yet to respond.

Meanwhile, Chip, 42, is set to open his own section in the Magnolia Silos. It is unknown if the lawsuit will affect the opening date.

Joanna, 38, and Chip are currently battling their Silos neighbor over a fence they put up on the property as well.
