NBC said "Apprentice" co-producers Donald Trump and Mark Burnett aren’t receiving the $160 million over two years that has been reported, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
As previously reported, Trump was said to have received a deal that would make him the highest-paid reality TV star. But NBC denied the report, which appeared in the New York Post, calling it “grossly inaccurate” and "significantly overstated," The Hollywood Reporter says.
NBC’s statement added: “While it is our policy to keep financial information strictly confidential, neither the production costs of the show nor what Mr. Trump makes personally is in the realm of reality.”
Trump had no comment, the story adds.
