“Just purchased NBC’s half of the Miss Universe Organization and settled all lawsuits against them,” Trump said on Twitter on Friday. “Now own 100% — stay tuned!”

An NBC spokesperson confirmed the transaction, according to CNN Money.

NBC severed all ties with Trump in June, canceling the pageants in the process, after the real estate mogul made controversial comments about illegal immigrants at his presidential campaign launch.

Trump responded by suing the network for a breach in contract.

Trump hosted “The Apprentice” and its spinoffs on NBC for over a decade.
