Despite the growing rumors of drama on the Empire set, at least two members of the cast remain on exceptionally good terms! Sources close to the show have revealed that Trai Byers and his castmate Grace Gealey are officially an item. How cute!
Byers, who plays Andre Lyon on the show, and Gealey, who plays Anika Calhoun, have been dating for several months, a source close to the pair told Us Weekly.
"They started seeing each other during the shooting of the show. There was an instant attraction, people working on the show are aware about it," the insider said. "When they all hang out together they'll cuddle and give a kiss, but it's nothing obscene."
A second source added that Byers and Gealey “are having a great time together” but are keeping their relationship very low-key.
Talk of the pair’s budding romance comes amid growing reports that the cast of the hit Fox TV show is at odds. According to reports, Taraji P. Henson, who plays Cookie, and Taraji P. Henson, who play’s her ex-husband Lucious Lyon, have taken control over the set and script writing process, leaving many of their castmates angry over their reduced screen time.

“They call for re-writes if they don't like the lines or feel as though another character is getting more camera time than they are,” a source told Daily Mail Online. “They both have final approval over the script, which often frustrates the other actors because it causes their lines to regularly change.”
