NeNe Leakes has officially dropped her discrimination lawsuit against Bravo, Andy Cohen, and NBC Universal, the network’s parent company.
According to reports, the former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star filed documents on Friday to have the case dismissed without prejudice which means she will be able to reopen the case at a later time and date.
The documents also state that “the parties who are involved in the case have agreed to not seek recovery of costs or attorneys’ fees.”
The decision to have this case dismiss reportedly comes after Leakes had been in negotiations with Cohen, NBC Universal, and Bravo to potentially have the case settled out of court.
Although the lawsuit has been dropped, Leakes continues to stand by her claims of discrimination. Last month, she addressed the abuse that she received.
“Everybody can see what they did to me! Nobody is stupid,” she tweeted in response to fans on Twitter.
NeNe went on to say that the way she was treated has been ongoing for years and then targeted Cohen. “He stopped me from working because I was a threat to his career! Yet he was able to abuse me for years,” she wrote on Twitter.
NeNe Leakes first filed the lawsuit back in April, claiming that she was racially discriminated against by former co-star Kim Zolciak-Biermann, however, no lawsuit was brought against her.
Leakes also claims that she has been blacklisted from getting other jobs because she chose to speak out against the abuse she received.
What are your thoughts on this matter? Reps for Cohen, Bravo, and NBC Universal have not commented on this matter.
