Taraji P. Henson and Nia Long reportedly did not get along on the set of “Empire,” so much so that producers nearly had to shoot their joint scenes separately, according to TMZ.

Nia guest-stars on the current third season in the recurring role of Lucious Lyon’s ex.

Citing multiple production sources, the site says Nia “was extremely rude to the people in hair, makeup and wardrobe — something Nia’s people strongly deny — which pissed Taraji off something fierce.”

According to the website, the two stopped speaking to each other at one point, and sources said it was next to impossible to film the scenes they did together, and that’s why they had actually blocked out how to shoot those scenes separately.

Sources say there is no chance Nia will be brought back for season 4.

Nia’s rep tells TMZ, “This story is complete nonsense. Throughout her long, established career, Nia has been nothing but a consummate professional treating all members of productions with respect.”

The rep continues, “This is nothing but another complete fabrication about a series that has been plagued by constant rumors of drama and misconduct.”

    Can this be chalked up as fake news? Back in the day stories like these had to cross-checked three different ways for accuracy.

    Nia Long has been in “the business” for a long time, and this is the first time that I have ever read that she was rude and unprofessional. I am very sceptical.

  3. I really don’t believe this story not one bit. Nia doesn’t come across as the person they are portraying her as. cause if she was why hasn’t this come up about her before? I think this story was put out to boost the ratings because if any of you are seeing the same show I’m seeing it appears they are trying to hard to be provocative and it’s way over the top and too much, I don’t know about you but it’s not working for me, becoming expected therefore making it boring. Loving Power though!!!

    I can’t see Nia acting unprofessional. Taraji I can. Don’t get me wrong I love both of these ladies acting abilities but a lady can tell when another lady have attitude for real and I think Taraji does. She probably just marking her territory so that another one won’t come in and try to steal her scenes and or character. I agree with you Sarah!

    Wow. I saw the previews with Nia Long in them. I could see where their may have been some conflict. But I’m looking forward to seeing the show. I enjoy watching both women’s acting abilities.
