Gabourey Sidibe is the newest addition to the upcoming Lee Daniel's tv show "Empire". And Frank Ocean served up a "F U" worth over $200,000 to Chipotle.
The cast of the upcoming music industry-centered show "Empire", starring Terrence Howard, just nabbed it's newest star.
Gabby Sidibe has signed on to play "Becky"...yes, Becky....who will be music superstar Terrence's assistant. Terrence's character, "Luscious Lyon" (these names!), is trying to take his company, Empire Entertainment, public.
The show, created by Lee Daniels (who Gabby worked with in Precious), will serve as Fox's hip hop industry drama. Whatever that means.
We hear it will have a similar music-focused theme like "Glee", with music from the show possibly being sold digitally.
Also starring in the show is Taraji P. Henson, Malik Yoba, Jussie Smollett, and Timbaland will be doing the songwriting. Glad Gabby keeps a job in this industry. A definite "Take That Take That" to all those who said she would never work again.
Meanwhile, frank Ocean isn't trying to deal with that Chipotle fallout longer than necessary. After the burrito specialists at the place we're all addicted to decided to slap the "Thinkin Bout You" singer with a $212,500 lawsuit for backing out of his contractual obligation in relation to an ad campaign, Frank has responded.
Frank, whose government name is Christopher Breaux, reportedly got pissed that Chipotle put a CHIPOTLE logo at the end of their new commercial Frank was tapped to sing and star in. He claimed he was supposed to have final say over EVERYTHING. So he scrapped his obligations, and Chipotle sued him for the first half of their over $400,000 deal that they had already paid the singer.
So....Mr. Ocean posted a pic of the check that he went ahead and gave to Chipotle so that this legal issue doesn't drag out any longer. But that memo line though....

Jaden Smith and Kylie Jenner were spotted at the supermarket while Tyrese dined out with a mysterious woman yesterday. See the candids inside....
Kylie Jenner and Jaden Smith were photographed inside Ralph's Supermarket in Calabasas, CA yesterday.
During a recent interview with Seventeen Prom, Kylie told the mag that she does not have a boyfriend but may take Jaden as her prom date.
The two were with a group of friends that bumped included Kylie's sister, Kendall Jenner while at Ralph's.
Tyrese was spotted leaving Chili's yesterday with a female friend in LA.
If you're wondering why an international-film star is dining at Chili's, it may be that he's watching his pocketbook. During a recent child support hearing with his baby mama, Tyrese alleged that Paul Walker's death and the loss of Fast & Furious 7 income had impacted his lifestyle.

Timbaland and his wife Monique were spotted together recently after Monique filed for divorce months ago. Find out about the couple’s reconciliation and Lil Mo’s house being broken into inside…
Super-producer Timbaland (who turned 42 today) and his wife Monique Mosely were spotted together, over the weekend, at the GREY GOOSE Vodka and the Cadillac Championship Toast for Travie McCoy at the Trump National in Doral, Florida.
During the event, the reunited couple presented a $5,000 check on behalf of their Always Believing Foundation. The foundation was founded by Timb and Mo in 2008 to assist youth in building healthy successful communities around the world.
Although Mo filed for divorce back in October, the couple has apparently kissed and made up. It was reported that Monique was asking for child support, school expenses, vacay money and everything else for both their 5-year-old daughter AND her 10-year-old from a previous relationship. But things have changed.....
In February, Timb took to Instagram to profess his love for his wife:
And the feelings are mutual. She responded:
Good for them.
And in other relationship news...
She posted his picture as her “man crush Monday” and issued a warning to everyone that she would “kill for this one here!”
Also…Lil Mo’s house was broken into over the weekend.
She posted the pictures above and revealed that the robber cleared her studio out! We are NOT pointing any fingers but it sounds like the robbery may have been an inside job.
