Similar to his father, Corey Harrison doesn’t have the best of record when it comes to his married life. From summer flicks to a disoriented married life, Corey has been married and divorced twice. Even though Corey first rose to fame for being the son of Rick Harrison, he has since gone on to make a name for himself. An American businessman and reality television personality, Corey is currently known as a cast member of the History TV series Pawn Stars. The series documents the work of Corey and Rick at the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas.
Corey Harrison was born to the family of Harrison, the co-owners of the pawn shop on April 27, 1983, in Las Vegas, Nevada. He has two brothers, Adam and Jake. He began working at the shop at the age of nine, learning the ropes from his father and grandfather.
Rick Began his professional career at his fathers shop where he rose to the manager position. The shop’s daily business and its 30 workers were under the control of Corey, who earned the name “Big Hoss”. He bought more stuff than anyone else in the shop, and Rick was preparing him to take over the shop someday. He often clashed with his dad and granddad over how well he knew what the shop had, what he had to do as a boss, and how good he was at selling, especially when he spent a lot of money on items. Harrison informed his father and grandfather that he will pursue a career at another enterprise if he is not granted a 10% share in the shop. He continued with the shop after he was awarded a salary increase and a 5% share, with the potential of a larger share in the future.
In 2009, Corey and his family became the stars of Pawn Stars, a reality TV show that showcases their daily interactions with customers and their rare and valuable items. The show became one of the most popular and highest-rated programs on History Channel, and made Corey a celebrity. He also appeared as himself, alongside his dad Rick and Chumlee in “iLost My Head in Vegas”, an episode of the American TV series iCarly.
Corey Harrison has amassed a fortune from his family’s pawn shop. He is one of the main cast members of the hit show “Pawn Stars”, which showcases the daily operations and transactions of the World Famous Gold and Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas. He is also an author of a book titled License to Pawn: Deals, Steals and Life at the Gold and Silver. His net worth is estimated to be around $4. million.

He lost over 190 pounds and improved his health and appearance.
High School Love
Corey Harrison met his first wife when the pair were attending high school. They fell in love early on and decided to tie the knot in 2009. However, six years into the relationship and things started to fall apart. In 2015, Charlene Harrison and Corey filed for divorce and separated soon after. While the reason for divorce was not disclosed to the media, it was rumored that Corey’s busy schedule and tendency to party was to blame. As the pair had no children, the divorce was finalized in a span of a few months.
Following his divorce from Charlene, Corey dated Roxy Gonzalez for a while but the pair called things off soon after. Corey then tied the knot to his second wife, Korina ‘Kiki’ Harrison in 2017. However, the relationship lasted only for a single year and the pair decided to call things off in 2018. Talking to Blast, Corey Harrison revealed,
“Karina and I love each other very much. With our competing work schedules, we just weren’t able to make the marriage work but remain good friends and want only the best for each other.”
The pair filed for a joint petition which was sealed just weeks after. Kiki was pregnant during the time and the child was due on the 23rd of October. They planned to name the baby Richard Benjamin Harrison, after Richard “Old Man” Harrison. While the pair first announced the news via Instagram, Corey quickly deleted the post after. Since then, there has been no news of Kiki and their child.
Even though Kiki and Corey filed for divorce in 2018, things look to be on for the pair. The news broke out after Kiki posted a picture of her new “Harrison” tattoo under the caption,
“Sometimes you need that girl that will ride for you and a year and a half after you leave to make you realize it’s time to come home I love you @kikinejo #harrison.”
While the pair are yet to confirm or deny the news, Kiki and Corey Harrison seem to be back on. On his end, Corey posted a photo kissing a mystery woman who looked much like his ex-wife Kiki. The image sent fans into meltdown with rumors that the pair were back together. The rumors were also fueled by the fact that Korina had not changed her last name from Harrison.
