According to Page Six, a woman named Sophia
Eggleston, who says she is the “real-life Cookie
Lyons,” has filed a $300 million lawsuit against
Empire co-creator Lee Daniels and Fox, claiming
that Daniels and Fox stole her life story.
Sophia Eggleston claims in her lawsuit, she
embodies the “Cookie” character in almost every
important respect, including a penchant for
wearing mink.
She also says she did time for putting a hit on
someone, and Cookie’s character did the same
thing.
Eggleston says she gave a copy of an
autobiography to a screenwriter back in 2011,
and she says months later the screenwriter
called her to say she was pitching the book to
Lee Daniels.
Eggleston, who is suing for $300 million, is
representing herself.
