Tucker Carlson accuses Fox of breach of contract, fraud

Tucker Carlson accused Fox News Network of fraud and breach of contract.

Tucker Carlson accused Fox News Network on Tuesday of fraud and breach of contract after he was ousted from the network late last month.

Carlson's lawyer Bryan Freedman sent a letter addressed to Fox News' Viet Dinh and Irena Briganti alleging that the network’s executives intentionally broke promises made to Carlson "with reckless disregard for the truth", according to a report.

According to the letter, these "material representations" the network made to Carlson were intentionally broken which constitutes fraud, Axios reports.

Lawyers also allege that Fox News broke an agreement with Carlson to keep his private communications confidential, not use them “to take any adverse employment action against him."

"These actions not only breached the covenant of good faith and fair dealing in the Agreement, but give rise to claims for breach of contract, and intentional and negligent misrepresentation," the letter reportedly states.

Fox News was also accused of damaging the former host's reputation by settling with Dominion Voting Systems after allegedly agreeing to handle the lawsuit in a way that would not "indicate wrongdoing" on Carlson's part.

As a result, Carlson's lawyers say Fox News' breach of contract terminates the noncompete clause thus paving the way for the conservative media starlet to launch his own business endeavors, which Carlson did on Tuesday.

The former Fox News host announced that he will soon be relaunching his own show and streaming it exclusively on Twitter.

Carlson made the announcement in a post to Twitter, simply captioned "We're back."

Carlson reportedly spoke with Twitter CEO Elon Musk about working together this past week, according to one report.

Axios reported on Sunday that "Carlson and Elon Musk had a conversation about working together, but didn't discuss specifics." 

"The idea that anyone is going to silence Tucker and prevent him from speaking to his audience is beyond preposterous," said Bryan Freedman, the lawyer representing Carlson in the dispute between Fox and the anchor.
