Nia Long’s Alleged Diva Behavior Is Nothing New?
Days after the “Empire” glam squad filed a formal complaint against Nia Long claiming she was disrespectful and unprofessional, a new report claims this tea is nothing new.
Sources tell Page Six, Nia’s “diva behavior” dates all the way back to The Best Man Holiday, where she allegedly held up production over the color of her wardrobe.
A 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.”
Another source who worked on the project did not recall the incident, saying, “She seemed lovely to me.” But the first source said, “Nia knows she’s demanding . . . She says it’s because she’s so passionate about the art.”
I sincerely hope this isn’t a smear campaign to tarnish Nia Long’s reputation.
We all have bad days at work. Hopefully, they are just shining a light on some of her less than finer moments.
Her rep is calling BS and questioning the timing of these allegations especially ahead of her appearance on “Empire.”
Could it be a ploy for ratings or nah?
