History Channel’s star Rick Harrison girlfriend made a debut appearance on his Instagram back in June 2023. Harrison has a long history in dating, marriages, and relationships.
Born on March 22, 1965, in Lexington, North Carolina, Rick Harrison was always fascinated with historical study. In his early days, he worked for his father, Richard Benjamin Harrison Jr., in his second-hand store, the Gold & Silver Coin Shop in Las Vegas.
Years later, the father-son duo upgraded the second-hand shop into a pawn shop. By 2005, Harrison and his father were disbursing roughly $3 million in loans annually, generating about $700,000 in interest income.
Harrison spent about four years trying to pitch his idea of making a television show about a pawn shop. After making some changes, History Channel was finally on board with Harrison.
The History Channel’s Pawn Stars garnered the second-highest ratings in January 2011 after Jersey Shore, a reality show.
Harrison released a memoir titled “License to Pawn: Deals, Steals, and My Life at the Gold & Silver” on June 7, 2011. A week after release, his book debuted at No. 22 on The New York Times Best Seller list.

Who Is Rick Harrison Girlfriend, Jen Brawley?
History Channel’s Pawn Stars Rick Harrison had been quiet for over a year about his personal life after his divorce from his ex-wife Deanna Burditt.
However, on Instagram in June 2023, he posted a blurry photo with his new romantic interest, Jen Brawley. Since then, fans have been curious about the new romance.
Thanks to the tagged picture he posted, we know Rick Harrison girlfriend is Jen Brawley. Her Instagram page has a photo of her flying a unique orange propeller plane. Harrison’s commented on the post, stating, “That’s my girl”, confirming their relationship status.
Brawley currently works as an operation manager at the Las Vegas Raiders- The Raider Image, a football team’s store. Fans assume their shared involvement in retail is a reason the two were attracted.
If that is the case, it surely is good news for Harrison, as his last marriage ended because their “tastes, mental dispositions, views, likes, and dislikes have become so divergent that they have become incompatible in marriage.”
More About Rick Harrison’s Dating And Relationship Timeline
It is quite common for people in showbiz to get into and out of relationships frequently. The story is no different for Rick Harrison, either.
Before dating Jen Brawley, Rick Harrison girlfriend, he was married and divorced three times!
Long before his Pawn Stars fame, Rick Harrison was married to Kim Harrison. The couple were married in 1982, during which she gave birth to two sons, Corey and Adam Harrison. Both the sons have made appearances in their father’s TV show.
While Rick is training Corey, hoping he’ll take over someday, we have not seen Adam in quite some time.
Corey revealed to HuffPost that his brother has changed his line of work and is a plumber now.
Rick and Kim separated quickly in 1985. Not much is known about her since it was way before Rick Harrison was in the limelight.
However, a cute Instagram post by Corey Harrison revealed that despite being separated from her husband, she is still close to her sons.
Rick states in his biography that he was working very hard to find a job and make ends meet after his divorce from Kim. While getting his life back on track, he met Tracy, who would go on to be his wife for the next 25 years.
Rick and Tracy met through common friends. They quickly became fond of each other and tied the knot in 1986. The two were in a loving relationship for 25 years until they separated in 2011.
During their time together, Tracy and Rick had a son named Jake. She was also an incredible mother to Corey and Adam.
Two years after his marriage with Tracy ended, Rick was already married to Deanna Burditt. The two had a private wedding with only 180 people.
Like Rick, this was also Deanna’s third marriage. Rick joked about their situation, calling it ‘the perfect symmetry’.
“I’ve got three boys. She’s got three girls. We’re basically the Brady Bunch”, he said.
However, ‘the perfect symmetry’ did not last long. According to a report in 2021 by TMZ, Rick and Deanna had secretly divorced in 2020.
Rick disclosed the reason for their separation in some legal documents obtained by the gossip column.
He stated that their “tastes, mental dispositions, views, likes, and dislikes have become so divergent that they have become incompatible in marriage.”
Although it is claimed that Deanna requested alimony, a settlement was struck in September 2020. Rick explained in his divorce petition that it “didn’t work out, and [the divorce] was a mutual decision.”
