Despite the rumors, Diddy informed Andy Cohen that after he found out that Lucious Lyon was an ex-drug dealer he knew Empire was not about him.
Empire was recently sued by Ron Newt:
In the video above Newt explains that him and his three sons (The Newtrons) were in the process of signing with MCA after they left Jackson Records. The deal did not go through because Ron was in prison on a gun charge.
Ron Newt explains that he met with Terrence Howard at a hotel a while back and the two discussed Ron’s film, “Bigger Than Big”. Newt claims that Terrence used his life story in his role as Empire’s Lucious Lyon and Newt is asking for $1 billion.
