Glenn Beck And The Blaze Are Countersuing Tomi Lahren

TheBlaze and Glenn Beck files countersuit against Tomi Lahren

The Blaze wants a judge to prohibit Lahren from making any public appearances without the company's approval and stop her from making disparaging comments about Beck and The Blaze. Claiming that they merely exercised the "pay or play" clause in Lahren's current contract, TheBlaze is also saying that none of this should have gone to court in the first place because of the arbitration aspects of her employment deal. But the producer confirmed that she and Lahren are "not in talks". She had originally sued for "wrongful termination" after she announced she was pro-choice on The View.

Both Lahren and Beck filed court documents on Monday accusing the other of "bad behavior" and misconduct.

According to The Dallas Morning News, Lahren lawsuit-glenn-beck-the-blaze-2017-4" target="_blank">filed a lawsuit Friday alleging her show was canceled after her abortion comments on "The View," but The Blaze wanted to keep paying her "presumably hoping they could find an exit strategy to sanitize their unlawful conduct".

Lahren hasn't appeared on The Blaze since her suspension.

The suit also alleges that Lahren's bosses ordered her to stay silent on social media, where she has millions of followers.

Lahren says she was told she would continue to be paid, and that she must "go dark" on social media.

"I'm for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well", Lahren said.

TheBlaze maintains that it has been encountering difficulties with Tomi Lahren for at least a year because she was allegedly acting like a diva.

"Lahren went from calling those who are pro-choice "straight-up baby killers" (as late as December 2016) to stating that she would be a hypocrite, as a conservative believer in small government, to not be pro-choice". In her lawsuit, Lahren claimed she was terminated because of her public pro-choice stance. Now, The Blaze's countersuit says that Lahren is "suspended but still employed, and is receiving pay and benefits", but by claiming that the site fired her over her (sudden and inexplicable) beliefs, she is "negatively impacting its reputation".

Lahren's lawyer says she never signed the nondisclosure agreement. At only 24, she has said some pretty outlandish things which you probably wouldn't expect from someone her age.

Many employees have overheard Lahren complaining about TheBlaze, saying that she will sue TheBlaze and "that she could own TheBlaze when she is done", the filing says.

"That is the reason why TheBlaze decided that it would not extend Lahren's employment agreement beyond its expiration in September 2017 even before her appearance on 'The View, '" the 35-page counterclaim states.

Beck and the Blaze also said that Lahren's comments were "offensive" to numerous Blaze's supporters and followers "because they imply that only a hypocrite would believe in the Constitution or conservative values but not be pro-choice".
