Laurie Ann GibsonAfter her publicized falling out with Diddy and firing from the "Making The Band" series, choreographer Laurie Ann Gibson has reconciled with her former boss and is now onboard for the reality show's upcoming season.

According to LiveSteez.com, Gibson resolved her differences with Diddy, and "business-wise" says it's a good move to move forward in their working relationship.

"We had this relationship before MTV, so there was a place of, 'Can we put this behind us? I believe in who you are. Do you still believe in who I am? We have something bigger than the show,'" Gibson said. "Business-wise, it was definitely in my best interest to take the challenge to move forward and put it behind me."

The choreographer previously accused the music mogul of threatening to assault her with a chair just before she was fired, which was caught on tape, during a first-season episode of MTV's "Making The Band."

Following her termination, Gibson filed a police complaint against Diddy for the aforementioned incident, and later said she was through working with him, moving on to other ventures such as a ballet with the Urban Ballet Theater.

That's all behind them now, it seems. Their reunion between will be shown during the season premiere of the "Making The Band," reports LiveSteez, which airs August 19.

"I said, 'No chairs and no entourage!' There were no chairs, except the ones we were sitting on, and there was no entourage," Gibson said.
