Glenn Beck files counterclaim against Tomi Lahren

The drama between Glenn Beck and his Blaze Network’s top star Tomi Lahren took another drastic step toward an inevitable explosion.

The Blaze filed a countersuit to Lahren’s lawsuit that alleged she was wrongfully terminated by his network after she appeared on ABC’s “The View” and revealed that she is a pro-choice conservative.

The countersuit alleges that the conservative firebrand abused the staff and violated her contract, according to CNN.

It said she was “inappropriate and unprofessional” with her show’s crew and that she frequently complained about the conditions in her studio, according to the 35 page counterclaim.

“Lahren turned down a number of advertisers on TheBlaze for unexplained reasons, limiting any chance for TheBlaze to recoup its investment into her and her show,” the suit claimed, adding that it had to address her “word choice on air” because she bordered on being profane.

The countersuit said Lahren’s “employment agreement with TheBlaze remains in full force and effect” and “she continues to be employed (and paid) by TheBlaze, and she has access to her social media accounts, as well as a Facebook page TheBlaze created and maintains.”

“When TheBlaze informed Lahren that her show was suspended for one week, it also advised her that it would continue to honor her contract (as it has and continues) and would invoke its rights to ‘pay or play’ (which means they pay her but keep her off the air),” it said.

“TheBlaze has had employment issues with Lahren for well over a year,” it said, and claimed that her appearance on “The View” was “simply the latest in a series of events that led TheBlaze management to conclude TheBlaze did not intend to extend her contract beyond the end of its term in September 2017.”

The network was also angered by Lahren’s appearance on ABC’s “Nightline” where she asked her employer to “Let me go. Let me move on,’”

“All of these statements violated Lahren’s obligations in the Employment Agreement.  Thus, Lahren not only breached her Employment Agreement, she repeatedly misstated facts in order to increase coverage of her lawsuit,” The Blaze’s lawsuit claimed.
