Fired Host Chris Cuomo Preparing To Sue CNN And Just Lost A Major Book Deal

The hits just keep coming for Chris Cuomo. Not only was he fired by CNN, he also just lost a major book deal in the process.

Now he is planning to sue CNN for millions, which could get ugly if he decides to start pointing fingers at people from CNN.

Some of the higher-ups could be exposed, as well as some of his former on-air colleagues.

The New York Post reports:

Cuomo, 51, has hired lawyers and is preparing to file the lawsuit over the remainder of the four-year contract he signed last year — after a bitter back-and-forth about what the network knew of his secret efforts to aid his embattled brother, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said sources familiar with the matter.

His contract was reportedly worth $6 million annually, leaving between $18 million and $20 million that he would be owed, sources said, adding that Chris Cuomo would also likely seek damages.

But CNN has “no intention of paying [Chris] Cuomo a penny,” an insider said.

“If he gets a settlement, there would be uproar,” the source added.

Another source said, “CNN has a standard morality clause in their contract that says if the employee does anything of disrepute, they can be immediately fired.”

The loss of the book deal has to hurt. Especially now.

How the tables have turned.
