Rumor is that a legal conflict opposes father & son and that a court legal battle just got started. As you already know Paul Jr. left the show “American Chopper” in June 2009 after a live TV non-scripted argument with his father and then went to start his own design company.
The object of the litigation would be about stock options in Orange County Choppers Holdings Inc. that Paul Teutul Jr. promised to sell to his father if he would leave the show and the OCC company.
It seems that Paul Jr, refuses to release these stock options and that Senior is obliged to sue his son to have this agreement being enforced by the court. I know this story since 10 days, was hesitating to publish it for a simple reason. I am still wondering if it can be a new TV reality show trick to boost the audience for the sixth season of “American Chopper”? Not sure, but if some things about OCC are not 100% believable, it’s their fault (photography of the past…)
