Gabrielle Union Suing BET


Actress Gabrielle Union is suing BET for trying to fraudulently extend her contract for 'Being Mary Jane...'

According to reports Gabrielle Union agreed to shoot no more than 13 episodes of Being Mary Jane per season at $150k an episode, but was informed one week before principal photography for season 4 that BET intended to tape two 10-episode seasons back-to-back in order to "cram all of the episodes into a single season," negating her $15k per episode season 5 pay raise.

Union is seeking at least $1 million and an order that her contract be amended to reflect that there be a maximum of 13 episodes per season.

BET could have been suid a million times but have not...yall think she could possibly win esp since 13 episode seasons where not in writing?

Yes to sue BET is to sue (the Joo-ish owned) Viacom and that maybe a difficult feat, even if all Gabby-Jane's ducks were lined up i.e., in her legally binding contract that she only agreed to 13 eps per season and the desired payrate and there was no stipulation of changes.

Gabby is too seasoned not to have an air tight contract. There's no way my contract says one thing(up to 26 episodes) but I verbally agree to no more than 13. That's a big damn difference. It's time for a new agent & lawyer

@8:42 although I'm not enamored with Gabby's one dimensional acting talent. She is easy on the eyes & seems down to earth

Damn, that girl is all kinds of fine.

I eat her groceries front and back.

She is too good for the EBT network anyway.

I see the Gabrielle Union haters are present (@12:11, @8:42 & @8:43). Y'all are so pathetic. Just because your job options are limited, doesn't mean that other people should take anything that's thrown their way. You can tell that all of y'all are unemployed or working minimum wage jobs that you hate.

Union has every right to sue VIACOM because they did not keep their end of their contractual obligation. It has nothing to do with her professionalism. She is still obligated to film 13 episodes but they will need to cut her a check for the extra 7 episodes beyond the 13.

she should of been on that to begin with

Maybe they're just tired of her and the show so they're accelerating it to get rid of her.

Plus those 7 episodes should be involved in season 5 but with a pay rate of 165K instead of 150K
