The stars of “Empire’ have much to celebrate these days considering the new show is a big hit for FOX, but sources say the success has led to romance between a few of the actors.

According to TMZ, Trai Byers (Andre Lyon) and Grace Gealey (Boo Boo Kitty) are actually dating.

The site reports:

“Empire” stars Andre Lyon and Anika Calhoun are family on-screen … but off-screen the actors may be hooking up.

Check out this video of Trai Byers, who plays Andre, and Grace Gealey, the now-famous Boo Boo Kitty. They went to a wedding together and people who went to the reception tell us they were super affectionate at times, but still conscious people were looking.

In related news, gossip enthusiasts are claiming Jussie Smollett and his onscreen ex flame Rafael de La Fuente (Michael Sanchez) are dating as well. Fameolous writes:

Today we received some hot TEA about Empire’s Jussie Smollett aka Jamal. Allegedly Jamal’s man in real life is Michael aka Rafael Fuente, who played the gay boyfriend on the first couple of episodes. According to the tipster, Jussie Smollett have dated Rafael for a while now but chose to keep their love affair a secret until Rafael is ready to come out the closet.


    1. Girl yasss. While everyone was talking about Jussie, I was checking out Trai. That man is beautiful!!!

  1. TMZ is so dramatic. They weren’t getting cozy. But if they are going to weddings together, something is up. They look good together. And Jussie’s boo needs to come on out the closet. Most of us knew he was gay in real life the first scene he was in.

  2. I keep thinking Taraji and Terrence may end up together. I know he’s married but he talks about her like he’s in love with her.

  3. I figured Jussie and Raf were dating. They hang out together a lot and Jussie looked very comfortable sitting on his bed in one of the pictures.
