Malik Yoba was reportedly fired from Empire for drugs, with insiders saying his substance abuse was causing problems on the set and eventually prompted Fox execs to step in. Yoba’s Empire character, Vernon Turner, was killed off in the show’s two-hour season finale. In an interview after the big finale, Yoba said he was surprised but not bitter about the decision to kill off his character. Malik said he learned from series co-creator Lee Daniels that word came down from Fox that Vernon Turner would be killed off. “Lee called me and told me,” Yoba told TMZ. “He said that, um, someone at Fox said that someone needed to die in the season finale. So, I was like ‘Word?’ ”
