Freedman made headlines when Gabrielle Union hired him to represent her after she was let go from America’s Got Talent in 2019 amid allegations of racism, sexism and toxicity on the set of the NBC show. The actress reached a settlement in 2020, releasing a joint statement: “We’ve reached an amicable resolution. NBC Entertainment appreciates the important concerns raised by Gabrielle Union and remains committed to ensuring an inclusive and supportive working environment where people of all backgrounds are treated with respect.”
