(A&E/Jeremy Cowart) "Storage Wars" star Darrell Sheets is reportedly threatening to leave the hit A&E show over a salary cut. TMZ reports the network plans to cut Sheets' pay in half from an approximated $30,000 to $15,000 per episode and the reality star is not happy about it. According to the gossip site, Sheets believes the network is phasing him out to make room for new guys who will work for less.

A rep from A&E told TMZ the show will go on with or without Darrell.
