Empire Sued Again

The new hit-show on Fox, Empire, is seeing its third lawsuit since its creation after Jon Astor-White claims that the show is 75% his idea. He claims that he envisioned the show would have had the likes of Alicia Keyes and Kanye West as actors while making it an elegant show with hints of “The Godfather.”

Mr. Astor-White is asking for $500million from the creators of the show, Danny Strong and Lee Daniels, to go along with 21st Century Fox and Imagine Entertainment.

The other two parties that have attempted to sue Empire are Ron Newt and Sophia Eggleston. Eggleston claims that her life is a mirror image of Cookie’s life in the show.
