According to her lawyer and documents filed, Gabrielle Union is suing BET for breach of contract over ‘Being Mary Jane.’ Union’s lawyer says that hey filed the lawsuit as a result of BET’s “outrageous conduct toward its No. 1 star on its highest rated show.” According to reports in her contract is said there would be no more than 13 episodes a season so that she could continue filming movies. Both sides had originally agreed to film 10 episodes for both seasons 4 and 5 to be shot back to back as long as there was a break in between.
In the lawsuit, Union is asking for more money saying that her contract also states that she is to get more money for season 5than she did in season 4. Based on the reports it sounds like they are trying to film season 4 and 5 as one season and then pay her the season 4 rate.
