Dec. 1, 2019: SAG-AFTRA Launches Investigation Into Union's Departure
On Sunday night, a spokesperson for SAG-AFTRA revealed to Variety that the performers' union had covertly launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Gabrielle Union's departure from AGT.
"It is our practice to work closely with members who reach out to us and their representatives in instances like this, as that usually affords the best protection and best resolution for the affected member," the union said in a statement. "Our enforcement action is usually handled confidentially to protect the member involved, and we typically do not publicize these matters unless the member requests that we do so. While we have taken steps to investigate this matter, we have nothing to report now."
