Empire returned last night to FOX with an explosive episode. But there’s even more drama backstage.
TMZ reports that Taraji P. Henson and guest star Nia Long were "at each other's throats."
Sources claim that crew in hair, makeup and wardrobe filed a formal complaint against Long. Henson reportedly came to their defense and attacked Nia, who was “habitually late.”
Tensions grew and producers found ways to shoot so the actresses never had to be on set together. Another actor told TMZ that Nia was so unpleasant they’d "never work with her again."
Her reps deny these accounts saying, "This story is complete nonsense. Nia has been nothing but a consummate professional treating all members of productions with respect."
