Malik Yoba Blindsided by Empire Storyline

On the shocking two-hour season finale of Empire [spoiler alert] Malik Yoba’s character Vernon Turner is killed by Andre’s wife Rhonda.

Apparently Malik was just as surprised as you were…

Malik tells TMZ he had no idea his character was being killed off before season 2 and claims Lee Daniels told him execs at Fox said ‘somebody’ had to die, but he never got a clear understanding why it was his character who had to go.

In totally unrelated news Malik unintentionally outted his Empire co-star Jussie Smollett 3 weeks ago [click here if you missed that].

The next week, after claiming he had been misquoted, Malik posted a video on Instagram warning fans not to get too comfy seeing Vernon on Empire.
