Cookie and Lucious are at it again!
Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard took to Instagram on Wednesday to address rumors of an on-set feud between the Empire co-stars.
"You know what I’m sick of you!" Henson yells at Howard in the two-part video clip. "You such a diva, ever since I got you this job."

It’s all in good fun of course, with the caption of Taraji’s video slamming reports that the former Hustle & Flow co-stars are feuding on the set of Lee Daniels’ acclaimed hip-hop soap.
"HA! Word on THA street is Terrence and I don't get along!" Henson wrote. "Like I would fight to work with someone I DO NOT get along with?! Don't be silly. #GottaComeBetterThanThat #StupidRumors #DummysWastedPaperAndInkOnthatBS."
Jussie Smollett, who plays Henson and Howard’s middle son on Empire, watches on nervously in the second part of the video, but his on-screen parents quickly prove that it’s all for show. They snap out of it quickly, facing the camera and reminding fans in unison, "Don’t forget, watch Empire tonight!"

One thing’s for sure, those Lyons can roar.

Henson, who is on the cover of the November/December issue of Bella New York Magazine, addressed rumors of a feud with Howard for the magazine's 30th issue.

"Where did that rumor come from that Terrance and I are feuding?," Henson said. "I fought to have him on the show. We've known each other for 10 years and worked together before. Why would I fight with someone I fought for. I can't wait to do a funny video and post it on Instagram of us feuding.”
