The legal battle between Tomi Lahren and her (former?) boss Glenn Beck continues after Lahren responded yesterday to a scathing Daily Caller expose on her recent suspension from his conservative media outlet.
The article, authored by DC associate editor Peter Hasson, describes Lahren’s bitter separation from The Blaze, starting with her appearance on ABC’s “The View” and ending with her most recent shot at her former employer. Lahren is demanding a judge hold Glenn Beck and The Blaze accountable after employees anonymously slandered against her for Hasson’s article.
This comes three days after both Lahren and The Blaze employees were made to sign a non-disparaging agreement, aimed at keeping both sides from publicly criticizing each other.
“It took no less than 48 hours for [Beck and The Blaze] to violate this Court’s order,” Lahren’s attorney demanded. “This Court should immediately get to the bottom of what appears to be a very transparent attempt at a public smear campaign by Defendants.”
Hasson’s sources at The Blaze accused Lahren of getting “high off of creating a hostile work environment,” expecting royal treatment from staffers, butting heads with other personalities on the network, and constantly complaining when she didn’t get what she wanted. One source said she demanded her floor crew to constantly heat her butt pads. Another said she especially disliked Dana Loesch, with whom she often avoided even being in the same room.
Hasson tells me neither Tomi nor The Blaze have come after him personally for his coverage.
Lahren sued Beck for ‘wrongful termination’ after he suspended her show over her controversial comments on “The View,” and insisted on continuing her show from her home in Dallas. She is still on contract with the network until September, but that is not stopping her from charging at her former employer and coworkers at full force.
“At least they’re talking about me,” sources quoted her saying frequently. If that was her plan all along, it worked.
