There seems to be some casting shake-ups over at Empire. HipHollywood has learned that Romeo Miller will be replacing Kid Cudi on the hit Fox show.
Reps for Miller tell us he will now be playing the role of Gram, a rival to Hakeem (Bryshere Gray) and the new love interest for Tiana (Serayah). Miller has already begun filming and posted this photo with Gray and Mario Van Peebles on his Twitter account.
According to Entertainment Weekly, actor/rapper Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi vacated because of “creative differences.” Cudi, who had already shot scenes for the role, has yet to comment on the news.
Fans of the show will still get lots of star power with special guests Mariah Carey, Taye Diggs , Phylicia Rashad and French Montana. Empire returns on Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
