Gabrielle Union and BET Settle Feud Over 'Being Mary Jane' Salary

'Being Mary Jane' is set to return early next year after The 'Birth of a Nation' star and BET 'reached an amicable agreement.'

AceShowbiz - Gabrielle Union has settled her dispute with BET. The actress previously filed a lawsuit against the network, accusing them of trying to avoid paying her contractual raise by taping two seasons of "Being Mary Jane" back-to-back.

"BET Networks is pleased to announce that they have reached an amicable agreement with Gabrielle Union and look forward to sharing the new season of Being Mary Jane with its loyal fans beginning January 10, 2017," they said in a statement.

Gabrielle Union sued BET "for breach of contract and negligent misrepresentation." She claimed they tried to pay her less money by cramming season 4 and season 5 into a single season. She sought at least $1 million in damages and demanded her contract be amended so that no more than 13 episodes could be produced each season.
