According to TMZ, Judy has had problems with CBS that escalated when former CEO Les Moonves, 70, resigned from the company in September 2018 after multiple allegations of sexual abuse.

Following the studio head’s exit, the outlet claims new management took over and began to have disagreements with the TV star.

Despite being a part of her contract, Judy reportedly pitched new show ideas to be developed with the network but was turned down numerous times.

She was reportedly more successful with her pitch attempts when the company was still spearheaded by Les.

Judy dropped the shocking news on The Ellen Degeneres Show on Monday but said she wanted to continue in TV.

The outspoken personality teased her new show Judy Justice and did not say where it will air but made certain it will NOT be CBS.

Speaking about the shake-up, Judy said: “I’ve had a 25-year-long marriage with CBS, and it’s been successful; next year will be our 25th season, silver anniversary.

“And CBS sort of felt, I think, they wanted to optimally utilize the repeats of my program, because now they have 25 years of reruns; so what they decided to do was to sell a couple of years’ worth of reruns.
