This isn’t Juan’s first time appearing in a series with Taye Diggs.  Antonio plays Luke Wedman on the series Murder in the First.  Diggs plays Terry English in the TNT drama series.  Similar to Taye Diggs’ character, Angelo DuBois, Philip is special.  Philip doesn’t care about Jamal’s fame, he just wants him to be happy.

Check out Twitter’s reaction to Jamal’s new lover boy:

Nothing is off limits when it comes to Empire.  Who can forget Andre’s threesome with Nessa and Rhonda’s ghost!? We guess Rhonda’s a ride or die chick forreal.

D-Major is cool but I can’t stand the fact that he hides his sexual preference.  Jamal won’t be able to handle the mental games D-Major plays.  We fell in love with Jamal’s character because of his unapologetic confidence.  D-Major is a direct contradiction of Jamal’s personality and Jamal should cut him off.

Don’t miss the next episode of Empire!
