Cannon Rep Denies Billion-dollar Viacom Lawsuit


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.”

But on Wednesday evening, Nikki Liberatore, who identified herself as a representative of Cannon, contacted The Daily News refuting the reports.

After Cannon caused a firestorm for his June 30 podcast interview, 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.
