According to Page Six, Sean "Diddy" Combs has banned his adopted son Quincy from doing the show. The publication claims Quincy was set to star on Empire, but Diddy got into an argument with the network when he learned portions of his son's music rights would belong to Fox.
"Diddy kicked up a huge stink and called all the top brass at 20th Century Fox TV to get them to change their rules over music rights,” a source told Page Six. “He said there was no way his son was signing over his intellectual property. So he banned him from the show.”
Quincy, the biological son of R&B singer Al B. Sure! and Kim Porter, released the new video for his single "Friends First" featuring French Montana. His catalogue also includes the tracks "The First Thing" and "Voicemail."
Another source has said the producers of Empire are still interested in bringing Quincy in for the second season. Other entertainers like Rita Ora, Jennifer Hudson, and T.I. could be featured on the hit show in the future as well.
