Iman Shumpert Clarifies “Empire” Comments

Remember when we told you that Iman Shumpert believes “Empire” ripped off the likeness of himself and his girlfriend Teyana Taylor for the characters Hakeem and Tiana?

“They’re using my girl’s character, her style, her look and she’s not getting anything for it,” Shumpert said. “They didn’t even change her name. They could have at least let my girl audition for the part instead of stealing her character completely.

“And come on man, they’re really using a guy with a flat top like me. Come on. That’s ridiculous. They never called us. We were blindsided. We found out by our family and fans when the show aired.”

Well after getting endless slander…

and some quiet time to ponder things over, Iman’s got something else to say.


Soooo does Teyana’s man reaaaaally think Hakeem and Tiana are a knockoff of their bae-ship????

Hit the flip.
