Gabrielle Union Sues BET for Being Mary Jane Breach of Contract — BET RESPONDS!

Gabrielle Union is not here for BET and their games with her money ! The 42-year-old Being Mary Jane star is suing BET network for breach of contract. Unions camp claims BET is attempting to pull a fast one by condensing two seasons together in efforts not to pay Union her negotiated fee increase per season.

Here’s a little background, about Unions contract from her camp. Apparently Union makes $150,000 per episode of Being Mary Jane for season 4. She was told that there would never be more than 13 episodes in a season and each season she would get a raise. So, for season 5 she is set to make $165,000 per episode. Well, rumor has it that BET filmed 10 episodes for season 4 and 10 episodes for season 5 and is combining the two seasons into one. This, would allow BET to only pay Union $150,000 for 20 episodes AND extended her contract for another season.

Gabby is not having it! Not like she needs the money, but no one needs a big corporation like BET trying to skim your pockets either. So, Union is suing the station for a minimum of $3 million and for BET to formally make each season 13 episodes max! The lawsuit was filed on Tuesday in Los Angeles and Union is not playing around she has high profile lawyer Marty Singer whose represented the likes of Bill Cosby and Angelina Jolie to name a few.

According to JEZEBEL Singer states,

“We filed this lawsuit because of BET’s outrageous conduct toward its No. 1 star on its highest rated show.”

BET responds to the lawsuit by saying,

“We filed this lawsuit because of BET’s outrageous conduct toward its No. 1 star on its highest rated show.”

There is no word as to if the show will continue to film past season 5.
