NIA LONG ADDRESSES HER ALLEGED BEEF WITH TARAJI P. HENSON
Friday, Apr 7, 2017

Rumors have been saying that the on-screen Empire feud between Lucious Lyon’s ex Giuliana and Cookie also took place off-screen between Nia Long and Taraji P. Henson. Well, Nia is finally addressing it!

It’s no secret that Taraji is fiercely protective of her Empire cast and crew so if someone is being messed with, Mama Taraji is going to step in. Well, apparently, Nia Long was not so nice to the hair and make-up team to the point that they even filed a formal complaint. Nia’s reps denied this and said:

“This story is complete nonsense. Throughout her long, established career, Nia has been nothing but a consummate professional treating all members of productions with respect.”

Then, word on the street was, Nia Long was going to sue the show. Well, Nia Long finally addressed the rumors herself while out in Los Angeles to members of the paparazzi.

“There was no lawsuit. I love Taraji, she’s an amazing actress… There’s no beef with us at all. Taraji is a wonderful actress. She deserves all the accolades she’s getting. It’s never been about that. I respect her, she respects me. The work is the work.”

She was really nice to these paparazzi… We’re still not sure about that hair and make-up team though.

Will we be seeing Nia Long on Empire season 4? Only time will tell.
