The longtime general counsel of Black Entertainment Television (BET) has a starring role in actress Gabrielle Union’s contract case against the network. In a 17-page complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Union alleges she was duped into working on more episodes of her BET Networks show Being Mary Jane — without a break between seasons four and five to allow her time to continue to pursue her film career between the TV production schedule. “It is outrageous that BET would treat one of its biggest stars in this manner after all she has done to support the network and contribute to its success,” the lawsuit states. Union v. Black Entertainment Television LLC, SC126543.
