Gabrielle Union and 'America's Got Talent' Reach 'Amicable' Settlement Over Workplace Toxicity Claims

Gabrielle Union previously made explosive allegations against NBC and the toxic workplace of America’s Got Talent.

“We’ve reached an amicable resolution. NBC Entertainment appreciates the important concerns raised by Gabrielle Union and remains committed to ensuring an inclusive and supportive working environment where people of all backgrounds can be treated with respect,” a joint statement from NBC and Union’s spokespeople said.

The actress complained about racism and health violations at the Simon-Cowell produced series while she served as a judge, and sued for defamation after being labeled as difficult for speaking up.

An internal investigation was launched but never completed and there weren’t any signs of systematic racism found. However, significant changes were made in the human resources department.

Gabrielle Union filed a harassment complaint after accusing ousted NBC Entertainment Chairman Paul Telegdy of threatening her for speaking forward.

But she stayed ten toes down and had a solid support system. In a Variety cover in May, the Bring It On star broke her silence about speaking up as a Black woman.

“Do I cave? I didn’t feel like myself; I’m shape-shifting to make myself more palatable. I’m contorting myself into something I don’t recognize. I had to look at myself and say, ‘Do you want to keep it easy? Or do you want to be you, and stand up?’ Because I’m not the only one being poisoned at work,” she said.

Jonathan Majors’ Tearful Speech at Impact Awards, A Journey of Accountability and Redemption

Jonathan Majors

Jonathan Majors delivered a heartfelt and emotional speech after receiving the “Perseverance Award.” The moment marked a significant step in his journey following his domestic assault and harassment conviction last year. While acknowledging that perseverance doesn’t excuse his past actions, Majors emphasized his commitment to learning from his mistakes and moving forward in his life and career.

“I’m imperfect,” Majors said, his voice breaking. “I have shortcomings, I acknowledge them. Perseverance means persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay. The God I serve has put me in a position where I’ve had to embody that word more than I wished or wanted. We live in a world that props up men, Black men in particular, as either superheroes or supervillains. But I’ve come to realize, I ain’t none of that… I’m just that guy whose faith has been tested. It has been strengthened by this testimony.”

Majors’ conviction did not result in a prison sentence, but he was mandated to complete a year of domestic violence counseling. Despite the resolution of his case, the topic remains hotly debated on social media, with many questioning the broader implications and outcomes. The actor is also facing another lawsuit related to the incident, adding complexity to his legal situation.

In a sign of professional resilience, Majors recently secured a role in Martin Villeneuve’s upcoming revenge thriller, “Merciless.” This new project may draw comparisons to his real-life circumstances, but it also represents a fresh opportunity for Majors to rebuild his career and personal life.

Teyana Taylor & Iman Shumpert Race Against the Clock to Finalize Divorce

Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert

A judge has mandated that Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert finalize their divorce settlement by noon on June 27, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ. If they miss this deadline, the judge will remove the case from the docket, although they can restart the process if needed. This week, the former couple spent Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday in court addressing unresolved issues such as a final judgment, a parenting plan, and child support details.

This legal urgency unfolds amid intriguing social media interactions between Taylor and Shumpert. For instance, Shumpert recently praised Taylor’s Met Gala look on Instagram, hinting that she doesn’t need his approval to recognize her beauty. Behind the scenes, the situation is reportedly more complex, with allegations of financial disputes, utility cutoffs, and Shumpert’s alleged childcare under the influence. Publicly, however, they’ve maintained a civil front.

Adding to the online buzz, YG faced backlash for commenting on Taylor’s Instagram post despite his relationship with Saweetie, though his remark wasn’t overtly flirtatious. Since their split, neither Taylor nor Shumpert has publicly entered a new significant relationship.

In the rumor mill, Taylor was briefly linked to Leonardo DiCaprio, but nothing substantial materialized. As the deadline looms, fans hope this signals an amicable resolution for Taylor and Shumpert. If not, they still have a chance to revisit the settlement process.
