Negotiations between NBC and Megyn Kelly over Kelly’s departure are playing out in the social media spotlight, with Kelly’s attorneys asking for top NBCU brass to step in if current NBC News chief Andy Lack can’t quash the leaks. “Despite my efforts to handle this process confidentially, NBC News is allowing the media to run with completely false and irresponsible reports that disparage Megyn by erroneously claiming she has ever asked for more money than her contract requires,” lawyer Bryan Freedman said yesterday after several online outlets reported Kelly was seeking an additional $10 million over the remainder of her estimated $69 million three-year contract with NBCU. “Unlike Mr. Freedman, who has repeatedly commented to the media throughout the negotiations, we respect the confidentiality of the process, and will have no comment until it reaches its conclusion,” responded NBC. In a plot twist, Kelly herself took to twitter to slam The Daily Mail for invading her family’s privacy.
