*It’ll be Jody and Yvette all over again this season on “Empire.”
Tyrese Gibson confirmed today that he will play a love interest of Taraji P. Henson’s character Cookie Lyon, reuniting with the actress on screen for the first time since they starred in 2001’s “Baby Boy.”
“Me and Taraji, we gotta do what we do,” Gibson, 36, told Wendy Williams in Friday’s episode.
“I’m coming to get my girl back,” he said to thunderous applause.
Gibson and Henson famously played angry and passionate lovers Joseph “Jody” Summers and Yvette in the John Singleton film.
“All them dudes on there kissing on my girl … I’m kinda done with seeing all that,” Gibson added.
