Gabrielle Union Settles Breach of Contract Suit with BET

Actress Gabrielle Union settled a multi-million dollar lawsuit against BET, alleging breach of contract and negligent misrepresentation. Her season 4 pay was $150,000 an episode and her season 5 was set at $165,000 an episode. She stated that BET was trying to force two seasons worth of content into the fourth season and “fraudulently extend” the terms of her contract. Extending the contract would effectively lower her pay.

Union settled outside of court for an unspecified amount. BET announced that they are happy to have Union working with them and that the fourth season is starting in January 2017. If you have a breach of contract suit contact the Patterson Law Firm at (312)-223-1699.
