Roseanne Barr has a fight on her hands to be paid her full compensation from her canceled ABC sitcom. ABC executives believe the star has brought the network into disrepute and has breached her contract obligations with her racist tweet, a source with knowledge of the situation claims. It's understood senior ABC figures are keen to block any payments due to Barr amid the embarrassment her incendiary tweet has caused the network. It has been reported the star raked in an estimated $250,000 per episode of the show and will likely lose more than $3 million in the wake of the scandal.
