According to the court documents, Cat alleges she met with Halle in July 2019 to discuss the actress’ new movie.

The UFC star claims that Halle instructed her to keep her schedule clear in order to participate in the movie.

Not long after, UFC came to her with a fight offer. Cat claims she met with Halle to discuss the offer and the actress suggested she pass on the fight in order to be in the film, citing liability concerns from the movie’s insurer.

She ultimately decided to turn down the fight, at which point UFC released her from her contract.

Cat alleges that once she informed Halle, the John Wick star said Cat could no longer be involved with the film as she was no longer a UFC fighter. She reportedly added that Halle has cut off all communication with her.

She is suing for damages, claiming that she relied on Halle‘s alleged promise that she would be involved in the movie.

Halle is directing and starring in Bruised, which centers on a disgraced MMA fighter who finds redemption in the cage and the courage to face her demons when the son she had given up as an infant unexpectedly reenters her life.

The actress recently revealed that she broke multiple ribs during her first day of filming for the movie.
