“Empire” just added another big name to their season 2 roster…Kelly Rowland! Find out who Mrs. Weatherspoon will be playing when you go inside…

“Empire” star-studded guest starring list keeps getting better and better.

Following announcements that Chris Rock, Alicia Keys and Lenny Kravitz will be starring in the upcoming second season of the hit FOX drama series, a new name just popped up on the ever-growing list.

Fab chick Kelly Rowland is set to join the cast! And we’re super excited about it.

Guess what role she will be playing?

Wait for it…..

 

 

 

The 34-year-old stunna is set to play Lucious Lyon’s mother….in a flashback!

A source close to set spilled the tea to E! News during the 2015 ESSENCE Festival going down right now in New Orleans. And it definitely seems to be true:

 

 

Last month, the mother-of-one stopped by the Empire Writer’s room to chop it up with the show’s writers. Ahh...September 23rd isn't getting here quickly enough.

The gorgeous R&B songstress (who EIC says rocked the same super cute black sheer tee Jada Pinkett Smith wore recently) joined Trey Songz and choreographer director Frank Gatson Jr. for the Samsung Galaxy Experience. During her time on the panel, Kelly dished on how she’s juggling motherhood and career.

Touching on raising a African-American son in America, Kelly spoke about how she plans to teach Titan (her son with husband Tim Weatherspoon) how to interact with police. But she's plans to teach him how to stand up for himself. She said, “We want to teach him to be responsible and to respect authority, but to always stand up for himself. He’s no punk.”
 

Facts.
