United Talent Agency To Donald Faison, “Pay Up”



Actor Donald Faison is wrapped up in a legal battle after a lawsuit was filed against the talented actor for not paying his agents.

Faison, who made nearly $75,356 per episode on the hit show Scrubs, allegedly stopped paying United Talent Agency their 10% commission after Episode 3 of Season 9. The agency claims they initially got Donald the gig back in 2001 are angry that he has not paid up. “Faison has not only turned his back on the people that helped slingshot his career, but on his contractual obligations to those people,” UTA wrote in the lawsuit.

The group also alleges that Faison failed to pay them after they booked him to appear on a pilot episode of the ABC sitcom, The Law. The actor made nearly $60k.

HipHollywood reached out to United Talent Agency for comment, but no word back.

UTA is seeking more than $70k in damages.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
