The Internet has been flooded with copycat reports claiming Nia Long and Taraji P. Henson were feuding with each other while on the set of Fox’s Empire, but HipHollywood is learning exclusively that the two had no beef.

An insider close to both parties tells us that the two women had no issues while filming and that “Nia was just fine.” The source also reveals that “they are adversaries on the screen and that’s it.”

The insider added, “I don’t know why somebody would do this, or what they have to gain.”

TMZ reported earlier this week that during Long’s mini stint on the hit drama, she was a nightmare to work with. Per the news outlet, not only was she habitually late, but she was disrespectful to the crew members, including the hair and makeup team.

The alleged mistreatment of cast and crew reportedly rubbed Henson the wrong way. But also adding fuel to the already burning fire, a joke gone wrong that didn’t sit well with Nia.

According to TMZ, Taraji asked the guest star if she was on her period after she went HAM on a cast member.

Long has not publicly responded to the claims, but her reps did a release as statement suggesting: “We stand by our comments this morning that Nia has always, and continues to be, a consummate professional on set. In respect to her working relationships with the cast, she came onto this project, in the first place, because of her long-standing friendship and professional relationship with Terrence Howard.”

50 Cent Talks Wage Gap: “I’m The Star Of The Movie … They Shouldn’t Get The Same Check!”

Scheming, coniving, calculating … this group of guys will do whatever it takes to get the job done in the new action flick Den Of Thieves.

While Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Pablo Schreiber and O’Shea Jackson Jr. try to pull of an elaborate bank heist, it’s Gerard Butler that trys to stop them in their tracks. They may be at odds on the big screen but it was all bro love off screen … so much so that Fiddy so graciously showed them his sex tape!

All jokes aside, the camaraderie amongst these guys was evident, but it was the diversity amongst the all male cast that made Butler most proud. “This is the most diverse cast and everybody in the movie is fantastic and it’s just great,” the A-lister stated while beaming.

And in addition to the team being diverse, their paychecks were also substantially different … but Fiddy’s take on the wage gap is an interesting one. “I’m the star of the movie, so I have to be paid … those other guys shouldn’t get the same check,” Jackson revealed. But, of course, he said it with a smile.

Den Of Thieves hit theaters Friday, January 19th … get ready for a crazy ride with a twist ending! Oh, and here’s a look at some pics from Tuesday night’s premiere.
