Being Mary JaneTalented actress, Gabrielle Union of “Being Mary Jane,” filed suit against BET network for breach of contract after their attempt to shoot two season in one to avoid paying her $15, 000 per episode increase for season 5.  She currently makes $150,000 per episode, read on for more.

Filed today in Los Angeles Superior Court, the 17-page suit (read it here) claims that although Union’s contract calls for no more than 13 episodes a season, BET ordered 10-episode fourth and fifth seasons of the series to be shot back-to-back. Union says she and the network agreed to those terms, as long as she got a break in filming.

Being Mary Jane has seen a series of negotiations between star and network since the show launched in 2013. Union and BET made a deal for maximum 13-episode seasons so the actress could continue to pursue movie roles.
