BET is finally speaking out about being slapped with a $1 million lawsuit by Being Mary Jane star, Gabrielle Union.

As previously reported, Union and her attorney, Marty Singer, filed documents on Tuesday for what they are calling breach of contract.

In the lawsuit, obtained by HipHollywood, Singer claims that BET agreed to never produce more than 13 episodes per season of their hit show, Being Mary Jane, but now, executives are trying to combine Seasons 4 and 5 to get as much out of Union as possible.

Per the documents, the network is trying to tape two 10-episode seasons back to back to “cram all of the episodes into a single season in order to fraudulently extend the term of Ms. Union’s contract.”

Union hasn’t directly responded to the suit; BET, however, did release a statement that read:

“While we hold Gabrielle Union in the highest esteem, we feel strongly that we are contractually well within our rights and are committed to reaching a swift and positive resolution in this matter.”

Singer tells HipHollywood exclusively, “We filed this lawsuit because of BET’s outrageous conduct toward its number one star on its highest rated show.”

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
