Rumors have been circulating that Trai Byers who plays Andre Lyon in the Fox hit series 'Empire' is tired of his character and wants out!

According to some reports the actor had issues with his pay check… meaning he wasn't satisfied with what his character was earning comparing to his other brothers - Hakym and Jamal Lyon.

The actor has come out to remind his fans just how much he loves his role in the award winning series telling his 708,000 followers on Instagram on March 4 that he's still a huge part of the show which enters season three soon.

"I don't normally spend my time dispelling rumors, but there is something I’d like to address. I have nothing but love and respect for "Empire" and all who are involved on the show. I have a fabulous relationship with FOX, and hold myself to the highest standards professionally.

"How could I think of demanding something larger than Andre, where I get to express a man with Bipolar disorder, who is on a spiritual journey to find his identity? I'm so proud, so happy, and so lucky to be a part of this cast. This show has started my career. See you in Season Three!" He wrote
