Bad Omen for EMPIRE Season 2? LAWSUIT Filed Against Co-Creator, Lee Daniels

American actor, film director and political activistSean Penn is pissed at Lee Daniels and has filed a $10 million lawsuit for accusing him of domestic violence, thus comparing him with Terrence Howard.

Excerpts from the complaint filed;

"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. Accordingly, and because of Daniels' defamatory statements, Penn brings this action for monetary relief, and to deter Daniels and others from their defamatory actions.

Daniels falsely equates Penn with Howard, even though, while he has certainly had several brushes with the law, Penn (unlike Howard) has never been arrested, much less convicted, for domestic violence, as his ex-wives (including Madonna) would confirm and attest."
