Representatives for Nick Cannon disputed a report that the comedian is suing ViacomCBS.
A report out this week said that almost a month after ViacomCBS severed ties with Cannon following anti-Semitic remarks, the comedian was suing the media conglomerate for $1.5 billion over the rights to the popular improv comedy series “Wild ‘n Out.”
”These reports are inaccurate. Nick’s focus right now is on unifying communities and combatting bigotry, racism and hate of all kinds, not seeking personal financial gain,” the entire statement read from Dan Klores Communications.
After Cannon caused a firestorm for his June 30 podcast interview with ousted Public Enemy member Professor Griff, ViacomCBS cut decades-long ties with the creative force behind the long-running MTV/VH1 sketch comedy series.
Although the 39-year-old “Drumline” star said he still has his job as host and producer of Fox’s hit talent competition series “The Masked Singer,” he issued a lengthy apology for the controversial comments.
