Gabrielle Union and NBC settled a dispute over her dismissal as a judge from "America's Got Talent." She had accused NBC of firing her after she spoke out against sexism and racism on the show's set.
- Union appeared on "America's Got Talent" for one season before her contract wasn't renewed.
- In June, Union filed a complaint with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing in which she provided accounts of racist comments made by producers about her hair.
- NBC said a third-party investigator determined in May that her allegations weren't true and they played no role in her termination.
- Union accused fellow judge Simon Cowell of smoking on set and guest star Jay Leno of making derogatory comments about Korean food.
- Both Union and NBC released a joint statement saying they reached an "amicable resolution," however additional details weren't provided.
