Terrence Howard is suing CAA, alleging the talent agency fraudulently convinced him to take less money for his star role on ‘Empire’.

According to CBS News, Terrence was aware that the agency would be receiving a fee for packaging the project, but was ‘unaware of the conflicts of interest CAA was faced with by not only having their own financial interests incorporated into the project, but in also representing the actors and the production companies, the suit states.’

“Despite this feeling of trust, it would be years later that Howard would discover that CAA … placed their own financial interests, as well as the interests of the production companies they also represented, ahead of his own,” the lawsuit states.

Terrence is seeking unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.

At the news conference Friday, Terrence felt like the situation would be very different if maybe the actor was a white.

“I can’t say for certain this was a racial issue, but I can’t imagine another counterpart – a white counterpart – with the same accolades, name recognition and numbers that I had, receiving the lowball pay that I was receiving,” he said to Rolling Stone.
