Now Gabrielle Union has filed a lawsuit against the network...

Last week NBC announced the conclusion of their investigation into Gabrielle's claims and found no instances of racial discrimination or sexism [click here if you missed that].

This week Gabrielle filed a lawsuit against NBC, America's Got Talent and its producers for discrimination, retaliation, hostile work environment, unequal pay and emotional distress.

Gabrielle claims she was subjected to racist jokes, racist performances, sexual orientation discrimination, and excessive focus on female judges’ appearances, including race-related comments.

NBC has denied the claims and insists Gabrielle was not fired, but admits her contract was not renewed.

Union is seeking unspecified damages.
