Folks are not showing Ms. Nia NO MERCY this week in the media.
A few days ago, Taraji P. Henson and Nia Long were at each other’s throats on the set of “Empire” in such a big way … producers almost had to shoot the scenes they were in together … separately.
TMZ ran another story about Nia’s diva behavior.
Nia Long was nasty toward her hair and makeup people on the set.
— Our sources say in the history of the show the hair and makeup people have only filed one formal complaint for mistreatment … and that was against Nia. The hair and makeup people say she was extremely disrespectful … at times deciding she didn’t like her look at the last minute and then chewing them out. The sources say there have been numerous guest appearances on the show — “from rappers to Demi Moore, and no complaints were lodged against anyone but Nia.”
Yesterday, Page Six reveals more information on Miss. Thing.
Source said she held up shooting on 2013’s “The Best Man Holiday” because “she insisted her character wear white when the director wanted everyone in black” for a funeral scene.
The source said, “She threw a huge fit and held up production for nearly an hour because she refused to wear black . . . She argued, ‘My character wouldn’t be wearing black to a funeral! She would wear white!’ They eventually gave in because they felt like it was a frivolous battle.”
