Shad Moss, aka Bow Wow, claims Black Entertainment Television network is running out of money.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, Moss wrote "The network running out of money man…. won't be no more hip hop awards either. Mark my words."
Moss made the statement in response to Gabrielle Union's breach of contract lawsuit filed against the once black-owned network.
In her lawsuit, Union charged that BET wants to pay her less money per episode than contractually agreed upon by combining seasons 4 and 5.
Union's contract calls for BET to pay her $165,000 per episode in season 5 of Being Mary Jane. But Union's lawyer alleges the network is taping seasons 4 and 5 back-to-back to “cram all of the episodes into a single season in order to fraudulently extend the term of Ms. Union’s contract."
Read Moss's full statement below:
“The network running out of money man…. won’t be no more hip hop awards either. Mark my words. Also when folks saw the exit to get out of there they ran to REVOLT. BET don’t even have the staff that kept them hot and made them who they were. Its people behind the scenes you’ll never know who came up with the shows that made BET WHAT IT WAS> It’s a new day now. They can’t compete with the worldstar viewers.”
Bow Wow's statements came as a surprise because he was once dubbed "Mr. 106 & Park" for his frequent appearances on BET's cancelled video streaming music show.
