"No one called or emailed?"

The lawsuit alleges that Chip bought out his then–business partners for $2,500 without filling them in on the fact that Fixer Upper had been picked up to air.

In the lawsuit, the business partners — who partnered with Chip in Magnolia Realty — claim they were bought out on May 6, and Chip announced the TV show publicly on May 8.

And Gaines' lawyer told People, "We are confident that these claims will be found to be meritless, and it is disappointing to see people try to take advantage of the hard work and success of Chip and Joanna Gaines."

UPDATE

HGTV provided a comment to BuzzFeed: "We are aware of the pending lawsuit in Texas, but we don't share information about or comment on pending litigation."
