Empire star, Bryshere Gray, known by for playing the role of “Hakeem Lyon, has pled guilty to felony domestic violence and will have to serve jail time!”
The rapper/actor, on charges of felony aggravated assault against his wife, Candice Jamar, earlier this year. He was initially charged with kidnapping as well, but those charges have been seemingly dismissed. Bryshere will do ten days in jail and serve three years on probation.
As part of the deal … Gray has also been ordered to pay restitution. He must also enroll in a domestic violence offender treatment program.
During his probation, Gray won’t be allowed to consume any illegal drugs and he’ll also have to submit to drug and alcohol testing. He’s gotta stay out of trouble … and he can’t possess any stun guns, Tasers or any other kind of firearm.
He also must check in with his probation officer within 72 hours of being contacted by law enforcement and he needs written approval from police before associating with anyone who has a criminal record.
As we reported … Gray was busted back in July following a standoff with SWAT at his home just outside of Phoenix. His wife flagged down a Good Samaritan and alleged Gray assaulted for several hours at their home.
These latest developments with Bryshere are very disturbing and there is no telling what repercussions this will have for his acting or music careers. Also known by his rap name, Yazz The Greatest, he was rumored to release an album under Columbia Records later this year, but now that seems to have been laid to rest.
Fox is also rumored to be moving forward with “Bossy,” a spinoff based on an all-female led record label ran Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) and Becky (Gabourney Sidibe). Other original Empire stars are allegedly making appearances. However, at this point, Bryshere and Jussie Smollett–due to his own infamous scandal– seems unlikely.
