Looks like one of Lisa Vanderpump's staffers is going to have to tip out a lot more to their agent!
On Wednesday, it was revealed that Vanderpump Rules star Tom Sandoval got a pretty decent raise in his salary for being on the Bravo reality show… only to go and try to cut his former agent Peter Young out of the equation. Uh oh!

Well, the owner of STG talent agency is having NONE of it as he supposedly helped the Sur bartender get his five year contract. Apparently, Tom didn't make very much while starring on VPR during the first two seasons. Young has since noted that he only snagged 10% of the Bravolebrity's initial $38,000 salary.
In legal documents filed by the industry professional, Tom supposedly decided prior to season three that he no longer wanted to pay Mr. Young and renegotiated his pay on his own. That's gotta hurt!
Obviously, now that Sandoval is making around $15,000 per episode, Peter wants a cut of that money since he helped establish the 32-year-old's career. And it seems as though the state labor commission agrees with him, as they've ordered Tom to pay up!
Still, the reality TV star is appealing the ruling.
Good luck, bro!
