Since 2009, the popular show has been delighting audiences with the strange things and clientele that come into the shop, as well as Rick and his staff’s funny responses to them. As a result, viewers are eager to learn more about Rick’s life outside of the show, particularly his family. So let’s get to know him a little better, shall we?
Ex-Wives of Pawn Stars’ Rick Harrison
Richard Kevin Harrison, also known as Rick, was born on March 22, 1965, in Lexington, North Carolina, to Richard Benjamin and Joanne Rhue Harrison. He and his fiancée Kim were expecting their first kid together when he was 17 years old, but she miscarried. In 1982, the couple married in a private ceremony and had two boys named Corey and Adam. Rick and Kim split up in 1985.
Rick married Tracy, his second wife, in 1986 after meeting her on a blind double date. He met her eight or nine months after his first divorce, according to his memoir, ‘License to Pawn.’ His acquaintance was dating her cousin, and he accompanied her on one of their dates. Tracy moved in with Rick after six months of dating and quickly became friends with his sons Corey and Adam. They married eight months later, and she not only raised the boys as a hands-on parent, but she also assisted her husband with his company.
Tracy was quite popular with the clients at the shop, according to Rick’s account, because of her good judgement and patience. She worked in the store until the pair received their son Jesse in 2003, and she and Rick split in 2011 after nearly 25 years of marriage. The reasons for his split from Kim and Tracy are unknown, and they have kept out of the spotlight since then. Rick met Deanna Burditt, a well-known attorney, and media personality, in 2011.
Rick proposed to Deanna on February 14, 2012, a year after their first date at the Aureole Restaurant in Las Vegas. They married on July 21, 2013, at Laguna Beach, California, in front of their closest friends and family. Rick revealed in a 2012 interview that Dianna’s three girls from her previous marriage get along swimmingly. “Perfect symmetry… I have three sons. She has three daughters. “Basically, we’re the Brady Bunch.”
Rick and Deanna unfortunately filed for divorce in July 2020 and settled in September 2020. Rick stated in their legal paperwork that they had irreconcilable disagreements owing to differing tastes, views, and mental dispositions, according to TMZ. He does, however, regard Deanna’s daughters to be his own.
Girlfriend of Rick Harrison
Rick Harrison is currently dating Tauna Harris, a realtor and interior designer living in Las Vegas. Rick occasionally publishes images with Tauna on Instagram, despite the fact that little is known about how and when the couple met. In February 2022, she initially appeared on his feed.
Tauna enjoys travelling and regularly shares photos of her job projects and vacations on social media. She also publishes design suggestions on her blog on a regular basis. Rick and Tauna keep their romance discreet, preferring to keep the focus on their profession.
The Children of Rick Harrison
Rick and his first wife Kim Harrison, have two sons, Richard Corey Harrison and Adam Harrison, as previously stated. Corey, who was born on April 27, 1983, started working at the company alongside his father and grandfather when he was nine years old. He is now the shop’s day-to-day operations manager, and in 2012, he was given a 5% ownership stake in the company. Along with his father and best buddy Chumlee Russell, he is one of the major cast members of ‘Pawn Stars.’
On a personal note, Corey married Charlene, his high school sweetheart, in 2009, but the pair divorced in 2015. With his second wife, Korina “Kiki” Harrison, he had a son named Richard Benjamin Harrison. Due to their busy work schedules, Corey and Kiki married in May 2017, then divorced in September 2018. In October of 2018, their son was born.
Adam Harrison, Rick’s second son, was born in 1985 and preferred to stay out of the spotlight. Despite the fact that he worked at the shop with his family, he has opted out of appearing on the show. Adam was employed as a plumber as of 2016. Rick and his second wife Tracy have a third son, Jake, who was born in 2003.
While working a summer job at the company, the young adult first appeared with his family in season 18 episode 12 of ‘Pawn Stars.’ Despite the fact that he is learning the ropes of the business from his father and brother, he is unsure whether he wants to pursue it full-time in the future.
