Nick Cannon is reportedly planning to sue Viacom for $1.5 billion after the network dropped him last month over anti-Semitic comments.

Since he was dropped, Cannon has been demanding the rights to his MTV show Wild ‘N Out -- a show he created.

According to information obtained by the Shade Room, Cannon is suing Viacom for $1.5 billion.

"It is just that simple, Wild 'N Out belongs to Nick!" his team told the outlet. "The show was created by Nick Cannon with his idea and original thought. Wild'N Out has brought billions of dollars in revenue to Viacom since 2015. And Nick deserves and has earned everything it is worth."

Cannon's team continued, "If Viacom believes in growth, equality, education, then Viacom will do what is right and pay Nick what they owe, and give him his $1.5 billion brand."

Twitter thinks that if Cannon created the show, he should be given the rights. MTV should not be allowed to profit off his creation after dropping him.
