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.
