The REAL Reason Behind Nia Long's Empire Meltdown?

Last week rumors were swirling that Nia Long and Taraji P. Henson did NOT get along on the set of Empire [click here if you missed that].

Now we may know why...

Insiders tell E! News,
"Tensions calmed between them towards the end of the season, but it comes down to the fact that they both have been in the industry for so long and both want to be the star." 
"Unfortunately for Nia, Taraji is the star of Empire and no one and nothing will ever change that. Nia came with her own ideas, and they weren't having it."
Apparently this type of behavior is nothing new for Nia Long as still others tell Page Six
...she held up shooting on 2013’s The Best Man Holiday” because “she insisted her character wear white when the director wanted everyone in black” for a funeral scene.
“She threw a huge fit and held up production for nearly an hour because she refused to wear black . . . She argued, ‘My character wouldn’t be wearing black to a funeral! She would wear white!’ They eventually gave in because they felt like it was a frivolous battle.”

Ratings are down so let's create a fake story about two successful black women in the industry to drum up viewership.

If Best Man Holiday came out years ago why is this info just leaking? Nia has been in the industry for years and not until she's associated with this show are these diva stories coming out. If you play with dogs you wake up working with Lee.

I believe the stories. It's shady but also a smart move for Lee's people to "leak" this just before the season begins.
And no this is not the media pitting two Black women against each other. Stories about Nia's attitude surfaced years ago. Mainstream just didn't care enough about her to pay attention. She messed up this time because like it or not, Lee is a top guy in Hollywood. She is about to get that Monique treatment. Sucks to be her.

This story is nothing but WATCH BAIT. It's a tired story to drum up interest for the show's failing ratings.

Nia is an industry vet. She's been in the game before we even knew a Lee Daniels was breathing. She's going nowhere. Producers/directors are used to dealing with diva attitudes in Hollywood, it's the norm for a lot of actors that have been in the game for a while. Directors learn how to deal.

Why is it that we are constantly hearing about this queen dealing with supposed divas?

There were actual literal divas who appeared on the show and we didn't hear of Taraji "furious" over their antics.

I said this in the last thread: nia can't deal w playing 2nd fiddle to taraji. She's been in the industry longer and is jealous that taraji has crossed over to mainstream success.

It's like brandy singing background for beyonce.

Nia is notorious for being difficult!!!

Why you think her career has been in the toilet??😐

@9:13 My thoughts EXACTLY.

I have Never watched Empire because of the gay agenda crap that they kept pushing.

For this same reason, i predicted Its Downfall...and here we are.


Nia and Taraji are probably laughing about this over drinks...

I hope that Star us Next to go too

Sorry doubters. This is all VERY TRUE. This is what Nia does. Ask anyone who actually works behind the scenes in TV & film.

Evidently, she already has a nice huge nest egg already prepared for her future. No one who needs their paper would act like this. I'm told it's extremely hard for women of color to find work in the industry, so if this is true, She'll be forced into retirement before she's ready because no one will hire her.
