Is there drama on the Empire set between Taraji P. Henson and guest star Nia Long. According to TMZ, the ladies were not too friendly after Long was allegedly rude to the people in hair, makeup and wardrobe departments—Nia denies the accusation. The show’s producers almost had to shoot scenes with the ladies separately after Taraji and Nia were almost at each other’s throats. They even stopped talking during filming on set. It was almost impossible for the ladies to shoot their scenes together. But Nia has a recurring role in season 3, so the squabbling would be frustrating.


Nia’s rep tells TMZ, “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.”
The rep goes on, “This is nothing but another complete fabrication about a series that has been plagued by constant rumors of drama and misconduct.”
