Bryshere ''Yazz'' Gray

Bryshere Gray who plays Hakeem Lyon on 'Empire' became a laughing stock outside a nightclub on Sunday night [August 16] after his powerful 'You’re So Beautiful' performance at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards.

The popular actor must have still been in character as Hakeem Lyon, the stubborn son of a hip hop mogul, when he tried to skip the line at a nightclub and got into a fight with security.

According to an eyewitness, Gray was trying to get into Memphis’ famous Beale Street and skip a line of 35 people, when club security denied him at the door.

Gray got into it with the security guard before his own bodyguard stepped in and took him away.
