I’m The Real Cookie Lyon: Woman Sues Empire Creators


Looks like everyone still wants a piece of the ‘Empire’ pie. Since becoming the number 1 TV show, Fox series Empire has been getting a lot of heat because people believed that the show was based on their life. This story is no different except the person claiming the show is based on their life is not famous.

53 Year old Sophia Eggleston is suing Fox and Lee Daniels for $300 million for “stealing” her life story. In the show ‘Cookie Lyon’ was this drug lord that had went to jail and coincidentally so did Eggleston. Once out of prison Cookie puts a hit out on someone; and you guessed it so did Eggleston but she fulfilled her that hit herself and was jailed for it.

Sophia does not believe this situation is a coincidence. She reported that in 2011, she sent a copy of her memoir The Hidden Hand to Rita Miller who is a screenwriter. Supposedly Miller told Eggleston she would pitch the story to Lee Daniels.


Not only do she believe the story line is about her; but she also believe that she and Cookie fashion sense is similar. Previously, Lee Daniels said that the character Cookie was inspired by his sister and the women in life. None of the ‘Empire’ creators has spoken out about these claims; hopefully this situation can get handled before things get out of hand.

The Daily Word: Lil Kim Claims Domestic Violence In Custody Battle

Today, details paired with more messiness in the Lil Kim vs. Mr. Papers custody battle over baby Royal Reign have come to the light.

Via court docs obtained by Bossip, Kim claims Papers abused her. Conversely, in an excessive interview with someone close to the situation, claims of domestic violence are vehemently denied.

Mr. Papers aka Jeremy Neil has been trying to see his daughter Royal for sometime now, as he filed for visitation just last month. As he processed the paperwork, he asked: for one day a week to parent Royal Reign, and even agreed to have a court-approved monitor supervise the visits.


Papers publicist, Tasha Hilton told Bossip:

“He’s not trying to take custody, he’s not trying to take her. He is literally just trying to see her. He’s been trying to do it very quietly.”

But Kim has been blocking him from seeing their child at all. Since the blockage was still in effect, Papers asked the courts to step in and handle the situation.

Later, the July 9th hearing had approached and Kim was a no-show. Instead, the veteran female rapper filed her own documents accusing the up & coming mc of domestic violence.

Papers denies the claims and believes it’s a stunt to try and prevent him from seeing his daughter further. Says that, being faithful and infidelity took place in their past relationship, but not violence.

Both Kim and Papers will end up back to family court based on the allegation this week.

What are your thoughts?

WATCH: Gilbert Arenas Hits Ex Gloria Govan’s Car With A Cinder Block, Calls-Out Stripper For Buying Boyfriend Sneakers with His “Tip Money”

Father, let us pray…Dear Lord, please keep these two away from each other…In Jesus name, I pray. AMEN.

What in Cinder Hell is going on?! It looks as though, Shanghai Sharks Guard, Gilbert Arenas is quite fed up with his ex-wife Gloria Govan, yet again.

TMZ reported, that Arenas recently smashed Gloria’s car that she drives with a cinder block after she allegedly threw his computer in the pool and/or screwed up his Netflix account. Basically, Gilbert tossed a big ass rock at the car, therefore, adding quite the damage to a car that he allegedly paid for. Smart, I guess. *side-eye*

Just watch the madness here:

Gilbert and Gloria both have a total of 4 kids together, and as of recent, they have both been going back and forth over a number of issues, in and out of court. Remember, the engagement ring that he recently took back? Yeah, that’s just one example.

As of recent, Govan demanded an emergency restraining order against him this week, claiming he threatened her life saying: “I want you dead or in jail or broke.” But the judge completely shot her down.

This seems to be a repetitive action of Gloria’s. Gilbert recently took his feelings to social media about Gloria’s various attempts of trying to restrain him through court. He says: “Another victory in court. I’m not the one to keep score but ur 0-16.”

Also, just this past Thursday, Gilbert called out one of his favorite strippers on IG for buying her boyfriend some new sneakers with his “tip money”:


Let’s just all say a little prayer for Gilbert, Gloria and well, maybe the stripper too. They should just all stay clear away from each other. That’s all.

On a serious note, hopefully, Gloria and Gilbert can reconcile their differences and focus on the kids, which is more important at this point. Live your love lives separately, but as parents be there for your children.
