'Love & Hip Hop, New York'

Stars REVOLT

Massive Contract Disputes

Big trouble on the set of VH1's "Love & Hip Hop, New York" ... TMZ has learned, the stars of the show are refusing to go to work ... and it's all because they think they're getting shafted in contract negotiations.

Sources close to the show tell us, all cast members were supposed to be present Tuesday in NYC to film a trailer for the upcoming season, but only half of the cast showed up. The other half stayed home in protest because negotiations for their new contracts had gone sour.

We're told the half that did show up then got upset ... believing they too were entitled to revised contracts ... and stormed off.

We're told most of the cast members want more money -- as much as double their last contract -- but there are other problems too ... some are pissed at how they were portrayed last season and they want more say in what footage gets aired.

We're told emergency meetings have since been called with the angry cast members ... and they're hoping to get what they want by the end of the week.

If they don't ... we're told the cast members plan to stick to their guns and continue their strike for as long as necessary. We reached out to VH1 for comment -- so far, no word back.

Replace them. It shouldnt be hard to do, they are not a high caliber group of celebrities. No one even talks about NY, only feeds I see are when people are watching Atlanta. The cast of NY are repetitive, boring, and desperate. The fact that they are asking for a raise when they are NOT

Just cancel the show: No one is interested in that cast. They shouldnt even feel comfortable asking for more money, when they are not providing any entertainment. They are boring and repetitive. None of them are well known and those that were, have faded completely. The only threads I see about the NY cast is "they are still on?"
