Sharon Osbourne is reportedly set to receive a big payout after exiting CBS' "The Talk."
According to Page Six, Osbourne will walk away with a minimum $5 million - $10 million from her former employer. CBS has vehemently denied the report, telling Yahoo Finance via email that the report "is wrong."
The talk show host officially exited the show last week, after defending Piers Morgan's controversial comments about Meghan Markle and her allegations of racism in the royal ranks.
Osbourne also faced claims of racist behavior herself. A damning report, which cited multiple sources, including former co-host Leah Remini, alleged Osbourne used racist slurs when talking about her colleagues.
The news follows reports that Osbourne was planning to sue CBS over her messy departure. According to The Daily Mail, the 68-year-old was seeking damages as well as the remaining two years of her contract (roughly $3 million) to be paid out by the network. It raises questions about whether the dispute would ultimately end up in court — and whose argument would prevail.
"The studio may stand strong because they have a lot of public sentiment and opinion on their side," LA-based litigation attorney Sean Andrade told Yahoo Finance.
"These types of contracts have different provisions like morality provisions that will allow [CBS] to take action if the person does not essentially act the way they believe someone should act who is in the public eye," he continued.
