“Empire” has been a smash hit for FOX, and it’s no question the show’s success has a lot to do with the cast.

Although Trai Byers has been praised for his amazing portrayal of Andre Lyon on the drama, sources are claiming he’s thinking about walking away.

  1. I don’t believe he’s a diva behind the scenes but I can believe he doesn’t feel his character gets enough shine. I agree with him on that. It’s like the only sons they give shine to is Jamal and Hakeem. You can tell Jussie is Lee’s favorite. The whole show is centered around him and Cookie.

  2. I’m hoping this isn’t true. He’s one of the best parts of the show for me. He always brings it in every scene he’s in. I thin Hakeem needs to brush up on his acting skills.

  3. It was only a matter of time. I bet he’s feeling some kind of way because not only has he been pushed to the background, but they ruined his fiancee’s character as well. This season has been all about Jamal, Cookie, Hakeem and Lucious. He has the most intriguing storyline but it doesn’t get much screen time.

  4. He is an ok actor but I get why he feels that way. I suggest he collect those check him and his wife BooBoo until something better comes along

  5. In other words, he’s clashing with Lee Daniels. I’m not surprised. You can tell Trai ain’t the brown nosing type and Lee seems to have an issue with anyone who doesn’t stroke his ego. I noticed Jussie kisses his butt all the time.

  6. Fox probably put this lie out here to get some publicity for the show. It comes back later this month and they need us talking about it again. It’s sad they just threw him under a bus though.
