The lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court claims that Allison Gibson's share of the profits was lowered from 10 percent to 7.5 percent when she exited the show before the second season. She says she's owed at least $1.1 million in damages from the improper profit calculation. Among other things, the lawsuit alleges fraud. Gibson previously sued the company for an audit period that ended in 2006. It's currently on appeal.
"Ms Gibson's complaint, like the one she filed previously, lacks merit and includes claims she previously lost on in court," a rep for 20th Century Fox told THR in a statement. "We anticipate a similar outcome in this case."
Reba, which aired for six seasons, ended in 2006.
