As if watching the drama on the show unfold isn’t enough, one of the stars of Fox’s Empire has himself in hot water. Oh and it’s not Terrence Howard.
The actor actually plays the spited, FBI agent and Luscious Lion’s half brother Tariq, played by none other than Morocco Omari. According to TMZ, a 24-year-old woman called 911 in Chicago on Wednesday, claiming she and Omari were in the middle of a verbal dispute when he “pushed her to the ground several times.” She claims that, as a result of the alleged violence, she suffered bruises to her neck and chest. The police reportedly arrived on the scene at around 2:30 p.m. and arrested Omari on the spot after observing her injuries. The actor was booked for misdemeanor domestic battery.
The brother did play a stern character on the show. Anyhow we will keep you posted on more updates on this story.
