‘Empire’ Rumor Confirmed

According to reports, Terrence Howard’s former management is suing him and in the suit, it’s confirmed the actor’s job was in jeopardy and had to be saved.

Page Six writes:

The suit further claims that when Howard terminated his agreement with Authentic Talent — which reps Michael C. Hall and America Ferrera — via e-mail in 2014, he “expressly acknowledged his contractual obligation . . . to pay [the firm] 10 percent of all gross revenue he received from any entertainment industry employment he obtained” while managed by the firm, which would include future commissions from “Empire.”

Howard’s contract with the show runs for seven seasons, and the suit claims he stopped making payments to the firm in March 2016.

Authentic Talent also alleges it “effectively saved Howard’s job on ‘Empire’ by convincing” execs at Imagine Entertainment “not to terminate Howard from the show.” The suit does not elaborate on when or why Howard’s job was in jeopardy. Howard’s p.r. rep, and reps for “Empire” did not get back to us.

    1. Hell naw. His messy a-s keeps sh-t interesting. They need better writing though and less guest appearances.

  1. I can’t even imagine Empire without Lucious. So it’s smart that they decided not to get rid of him. But I’m sure he’s a pain to work with. LOL.
