Chris Cuomo is demanding $125 million in cash from CNN who fired him over his part in his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's scandal.
"As a result of Turner's indefensible choice to unceremoniously fire him, Cuomo has been damaged in countless ways," his attorneys wrote according to Deadline.
"Cuomo has had his journalistic integrity unjustifiably smeared, making it difficult if not impossible for Cuomo to find similar work in the future and damaging him in amounts exceeding $125 million, which includes not only the remaining salary owed under the Agreement, but future wages lost as a result of CNN's efforts to destroy his reputation in violation of the Agreement," the filing adds. "Cuomo now seeks to recover the full measure of his damages against Turner and CNN."
Cuomo says he was wrongly fired and insists that he did not cross any journalistic ethics lines to help his brother out of the pr nightmare. Andrew Cuomo was accused of sexual harassment by several women.
