While exiting LAX airport on Wednesday, though, Empire star Taraji P. Henson had nothing to say about the rumors. Rocking a black fedora and printed jacket over a white T-shirt and patchwork jeans, the actress remained casually cool as she was grilled by photogs as she exited the airport.
She was also asked about the lawsuit Fox is currently facing after the network received demand letters from San Francisco-based Empire Distribution Inc. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the label requested that Fox change the show’s name, pay $8 million or pay the label $5 million and ensure that the label’s artists be included on the show’s upcoming second season as “regular guest stars.” Fox then sued the record label in an attempt to allow the network to use the title Empire for the show.
It’s seems like a pretty dramatic situation for the show, but an unbothered Henson had nothing to say about the suits either, swiftly walking to her waiting vehicle!
