The lawsuit alleged that Newt met with Howard, 46, a while back at a Four Seasons hotel and they discussed the documentary chronicling Newt's journey from the rough Hunters Point area of San Francisco.

Newt claimed in the lawsuit that Howard connected to the story and said he wanted to play him in a film.

Empire debuted in January to huge ratings and Newt alleged there were numerous similarities between his documentary and the show.
