Gabrielle Union filed a 1 million dollar lawsuit on Tuesday against BET over her Being Mary Jane contract as she claimed BET combined seasons four and five of the show to extend her contract and lower her pay.
Union’s attorney Martin Singer claims the network is combining seasons four and five to avoid paying his client’s contractual raise and to extend its option to engage her services for another year. Under her contract, Union is set to receive $150,000 per episode for season four and $165,000 per episode for season five.
The actress is suing the network and Breakdown Productions for breach of contract and negligent misrepresentation.
