Apparently, Sia Long and Taraji P. Henson have an epic feud happening on the set of Empire, and it all boils doing to wanting to be the biggest star of the show — this makes us want to watch it ever more!

According to sources at 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.”

Here’s where it gets feisty: The tension between the two actresses were apparently so high that producers had to resort to find ways of filming their scenes separately — even if they were supposed to be in the same room! Those rumors were confirmed with E!’s source.

“Nia may not be on the show anymore after this,” the insider added.

But that’s okay (at least we think) because Nia is supposed to lead the spinoff of The Goldbergs, but the insider did say that she’s threatened to sue over an “improper goodbye.” What does that mean you ask?

“[The improper goodbye] was when Nia made a big scene and claimed to ‘file a lawsuit’ against the crew after they rewrapped her trailer for a girl in the Make-a-Wish Foundation whose wish was to come to Empire,” the source said. “Nia had finished filming and left so they changed her trailer into the Make-a-Wish girl’s trailer. Then Nia popped back up and threw a giant fit when she saw it.”

The actresses got in another fight over that incident. But of course, Nia’s reps say the feud is all bogus.

“This story is complete nonsense,” Nia’s rep told E!. “Throughout her long, established career, Nia has been nothing but a consummate professional treating all members of productions with respect. This is nothing but another complete fabrication about a series that has been plagued by constant rumors of drama and misconduct.”
