According to the court document, Howard’s company Universal Bridges is suing 20th Century Fox Film Corporation for breach of contract.

In the docs, Universal Bridges says Fox agreed to pay Howard through the loan-out company for his work on “Empire.” The studio was paying Howard until recently. The actor continues to act on the show to this date. However, his company accuses Fox of failing to pay him for the last three produced episodes “even though it was contractually obligated to do so.”
Universal Bridges is suing for the court to order Fox owes Howard the money for the episodes and attorney fees.
