Despite all the good news, the show is still battling a few legal issues. Fox and Empire creator Lee Daniels are currently battling a $300 million federal lawsuit. A woman by the name of Sophia Eggleston claims that the show ripped Cookie’s story from her. She argues that the plot for the show was based on a book she wrote about her own life. This is the fourth time someone has made an attempt to sue the show for allegedly stealing their idea.
