From what we have read, Terrence Howard won’t have as many scenes, in the second season of Empire. This is, allegedly, as a result of his battle with his ex-ife, Michelle Grant.
She was his second wife and not too long ago, pictures of her face after being battered by Terrence leaked onto the internet. Also, there are new details about their sexcapades which involved the use of drugs. All these and the past allegations of domestic violence trailing Terrence has led to the FOX Network executives, cutting back his scences and giving Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) more screen time.
“What they are doing is two-fold,” said the source. “They have him locked up so you won’t be seeing him in as many scenes. But they are bringing in so many, and I mean so many, guest stars and cameos that the average viewer won’t realize it because there is so much going on.”
