The beautiful and talented “Being Mary Jane” star is suing the BET network. Union is filing a lawsuit against BET due to breach of a contractual agreement. Union states that BET is adding more episodes into one season with lesser pay. Via The Hollywood Reporter.
Union’s lawsuit states that she’s currently signed on to do no more than 13 episodes a season, but BET now wants to combine seasons 4 and 5 into one, which would also eliminate a pay raise from $150,000 to $165,000 that she was going to get in season 5.
BET has issued a statement about Union’s lawsuit:
While we hold Gabrielle Union in the highest esteem, we feel strongly that we are contractually well within our rights and are committed to reaching a swift and positive resolution in this matter.
