Nia Long And Taraji P. Henson Apparently Were Feuding On Set Of 'Empire'

Accoring to sources at TMZ, Nia Long and Taraji P. Henson have been feuding on set of Empire. Long joined the show in a recurring role for season three.

Per TMZ:

Multiple production sources tell TMZ, Nia was extremely rude to the people in hair, makeup and wardrobe -- something Nia's people strongly deny -- which pissed Taraji off something fierce. 

We're told it got to the point they stopped speaking to each other when they were on set. Our sources say 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.

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 goes on, "This is nothing but another complete fabrication about a series that has been plagued by constant rumors of drama and misconduct."

Season three has since wrapped, and TMZ sources say there's no way Long will return for season four. Whatever the case may be, it's quite the coincidence this news comes on the same day as Empire's return. We're hoping this is just a rumor and that the two actresses are not at odds.

Season three of Empire continues tonight at 9pm on FOX. Get a sneak peek here.
