E! News reports that Kelly Rowland will be appearing on the hit FOX show, Empire this fall and will be playing the role of Lucious Lyon’s mother in a flashback.
During season 1, Empire often featured scenes from Terrence Howard’s character’s past, which shows and his feisty now-ex-wife Cookie Lyon, played by Taraji P. Henson, during harder times before they built their powerful music empire.
Last month, the 34-year-old R&B singer hung out with Empire screenwriters, which sparked speculations she may make an appearance on the show.
