( 4UMF NEWS ) Terrence Howard's Role On 'Empire' Will Decrease:

Terrence Howard is dealing with so much real life drama of his own that he’s reportedly scaled back his role in the highly-acclaimed television drama Empire.

Howard, who’s recently endured a very public divorce as well as several allegations of domestic abuse, will be scaling back his role in the second season of Empire in order to focus on his personal life. A source told Page Six that the decision to arrest Howard’s character for murder was a calculated plot move in order to keep Howard on the sidelines.

“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.”

The insider also revealed that Taraji P. Henson’s character, Cookie, would get to step further into the limelight this season.

“She’s going to start dropping off from the flashback scenes and then they’re going to have her guns blazing,” the source said.

Neither Fox nor a representative for Howard have offered comment on these rumors.
