(Gossip-Grind News) Sean Penn Files $10 Million Dollar Lawsuit Against ‘Empire’ Co-Creator Lee Daniels:
Sean Penn may have just written an episode of the hit show ‘Empire’! Penn filed a $10 million dollar defamation lawsuit in New York against ‘Empire’ co-creator Lee Daniels. The suit was filed after Daniels compared ‘Empire’ star Terrance Howard’s domestic violence issues to those of Penn. Howard said in a Hollywood Reporter article that “Howard ain’t done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he’s some (NAUGHTY WORD!) demon! That’s a sign of the time, of race, of where we are right now in America.” In the lawsuit it says “As a result of Penn’s status as a public figure, he has for years been the subject of scandalous, scurrilous, and baseless attacks…But, Penn, like any citizen, has a right to defend himself and will no longer tolerate the reckless and malicious behavior of others, who seek to aggrandize themselves or their projects at his expense.” Many feel Howard was referencing Penn’s marriage to Madonna.
