Settlement Frees Tomi Lahren From Glenn Beck's Network

The agreement gives Lahren rights to her Facebook page minus the videos she made for The Blaze.

Tomi Lahren and Glenn Beck have settled their lawsuits against each other, allowing her to work for outlets that compete with Beck’s network, The Blaze.

The Dallas Morning News reports that the 24-year-old conservative firebrand will be freed four months early from her contract, which was set to expire in September.

Lahren will get to keep her Facebook page and its 4.3 million followers, but videos she made for The Blaze will be deleted from the page.

Lahren’s lawyer, Brian Lauten, released this statement:

“Ms. Lahren is relieved to have this litigation behind her. She looks forward to connecting with her audience and fan base on the pressing political issues facing our country in the days to come.”

Beck had been set to testify Thursday.

The settlement comes after a rancorous feud between Beck and Lahren, both of whom accused the other of “bad behavior” and misconduct. 

Lahren initially filed suit, claiming her show “Tomi” was taken off the air because she expressed support for abortion rights on “The View” on March 20.

Beck filed a counterclaim accusing Lahren of being “inappropriate and unprofessional” to the floor crew on the show, according to LawNewz.com, claiming she griped constantly about her lighting, the temperature in the studio and the way her shows were shot, edited and directed.

Things got so ugly that the judge hearing the case ordered both sides not to disparage each other in public.

The Daily Caller published what it claimed was an “inside look” at Lahren’s interaction with Blaze employees, including a report that Lahren made staffers heat up a “butt warming pad” in a microwave before every show.

Lahren blamed Beck for the story and called it “a very transparent attempt at a public smear campaign,” according to the New York Daily News.
