“We’ve reached an amicable resolution. NBC Entertainment appreciates the important concerns raised by Gabrielle Union and remains committed to ensuring an inclusive and supportive working environment where people of all backgrounds can be treated with respect,” a joint statement from NBC and Gabrielle’s spokespeople said.

“Reported at length by Variety, Union was ousted as a judge on the Simon Cowell-produced show after complaining of racism, health violations in the form of Cowell’s on-set smoking, and her labelling as difficult in advocating for a functioning and dignified work environment,” the outlet reported.

In an internal investigation that was never formally completed, distributor NBC and producer FremantleMedia “found no evidence of systemic racism but made significant changes to the human resources reporting process for employees at numerous parties involved in the show,” they also reported.

Gabrielle recently opened up about her hardest time in Hollywood.
