Gabrielle Union Sues BET:
Actress Gabrielle Union is suing the BET network, claiming they are unfairly trying to extend her contract on the series “Being Mary Jane.”
Union filed suit against BET and Breakdown Productions Inc. on Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court. She is alleging breach of contract and negligent misrepresentation.
According to court documents, the actress maintains that she agreed to sign on for the BET drama with the understanding that the series would shoot no more than 13 episodes per season. Union did not want to commit to more episodes to allow for her other work in film.
The complaint states that Union was assured during a meeting in 2012 with series creators Mara Bock Akil and Salim Akil that they “would never be able to produce more than 13 episodes of the series per season.” BET later confirmed that the show would film between 10 to 13 episodes per season, Union claims.
Donald Trump Threatens To Sue New York Times Over Sexual Harassment Report:
Lawyers for Donald Trump have called on The New York Times to retract a bombshell report in which two women claimed that Trump had touched them inappropriately.
The Times story featured two women, Jessica Leeds and Rachel Crooks, who said that Trump made inappropriate physical advances on them despite the fact that they had never met before. CNN has not been able to independently confirm their accounts.
“Your article is reckless, defamatory and constitutes libel per se,” Marc E. Kasowitz, a lawyer representing Trump, wrote in an open letter to Times executive editor Dean Baquet. “We hereby demand that you immediately cease any further publication of this article, remove it from your website and issue a full and immediate retraction and apology. Failure to do so will leave my client with no option but to purse all available actions and remedies.”
