Simon Cowell's company involves lawyers after Gabrielle Union 'AGT' firing

The article also claimed that Union expressed concerns over an incident during auditions in which she believed a white male performer crossed a line in portraying people of colour.

Union and Julianne Hough joined AGT's 14th season as judges, replacing Mel B and Heidi Klum.

And, he said Monday's episode of The conversation that AGT It was a great show to work with, but she has nothing good to say about NBC. Though the Bring It On actress hasn't shared details around why she was let go, her husband, Dwayne Wade, did confirm that it was untimely. Then Variety, citing anonymous sources described as "multiple insiders familiar with the show", reported last week that Union urged producers to report to NBC's human resources department a racially insensitive joke delivered by a guest during an interstitial segment.

It's unfortunate that @nbc the same network that protected disgusting men like Matt Lauer and punished women for speaking out or not putting up with it...has not changed their practices or culture.

We're digging into "Dancing With the Stars" victor, "America's Got Talent" had two major exits, Dog the Bounty Hunter is in a new movie role and Angelina Pivarnick's wedding got messy when her "Jersey Shore" stars roasted her in their speeches!

According to Page Six, executives from Syco - along with NBC and Fremantle, the production companies behind AGT - will meet with lawyers after the talent show was accused of discriminatory workplace practices by Union's husband, former National Basketball Association star Dwyane Wade.

"She went on to allege that judge Howie Mandel, who still appears on Simon Cowell's TV talent show, was hired and offered a private plane, while she would fly commercial to live auditions".


Osbourne said there was no one in the panel when she was on AGT so I honestly couldn't talk about that.

"We remain committed to ensuring a respectful workplace for all employees and take very seriously any questions about workplace culture", the statement said. "But when I was there it was, you know, a great show to work on", she continued.

Meanwhile, actress Elizabeth Banks tweeted her support of Union and the investigation.

In a previous statement, the three companies said "America's Got Talent" has a strong record of inclusivity, and judge turnover is common.

'The judging and host line-up has been ceaselessly refreshed over the years and that's one in every of the causes for AGT's enduring reputation.

NBC said in a statement to CNN on Monday they are working with Union to "hear more about her concerns". TIME'S UP applauds Union for her courage and once again calls on NBC to take these allegations seriously and take concrete steps to foster a safe and equitable workplace.

So many tears, so much gratitude. Humbled and thankful, forever ❤.
