Did Diddy Ban His Son Quincy From Appearing On ‘Empire’?
Everyone’s new favorite TV show, Empire, is picking up steam. As Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard kick up the drama, the show’s creator Lee Daniels continues to recruit additional star power. After revealing that he had his sights set on an appearance from Denzel Washington, Page Six also reports that Daniels attempted to feature Diddy’s adoptive son, Quincy. But Diddy wasn’t having it. According to a source, Diddy forbade Quincy, from appearing on Empire after learning of the show’s music contracts. As a star on the FOX series, artists are required to sign over a portion of the music rights in relation to the show, to the network. For the rap mogul, this was reportedly a no-go.

So he banned him from the show.” Daniels is apparently still interested in having Quincy as part of the Empire cast, however. It looks like it is just a matter of who will budge. Judging by this Instagram post from Quincy, there doesn’t seem to be any bad blood:
