Security forces exchanged fire with the assailants and sound of an explosion was heard almost two hours after the attack began. The number of those who died and were injured is not yet clear, though reports have said some guards are confirmed dead.

Nye says that the audit finally got off the ground in May of 2016, but he alleges that the defendants didn't include documents like licensing agreements and digital sales information. The host says that he tried to get an explanation but was thrown around for years, resulting in him hiring an external auditor.

This has led the lovable Bill Nye to file a lawsuit against Disney, as he has not been paid a significant amount of money which he was owed.

According to the complaint, the limited documentation provided to auditors showed revenues were skewed and royalties went unreported.

"The defendants, and each of them, have engaged in an ongoing, deliberate conspiracy to decive Mr. Nye and the BNSG Owners, and deprive them of their rightly owned share of the Net Profits from the BNSG series and derivative works", writes Rainey.

The suit estimates the company and its branches made over $28 million in "ill-gotten profits" off the show.

Nye's legal camp filed the lawsuit with the Los Angeles County Superior Court on Thursday, which accuses the Walt Disney Company of fraud and breach of contract. Although that audit was completed a year ago, Nye says Disney failed to produce documents related to deals with Netflix, Apple, and others.
