When Howard was pressed by Kryst to give details and if he’d go off into philanthropy, Howard came off cryptically. “No, not philanthropy; I’m just focusing on bringing truth to the world.”
Howard did not elaborate on what he meant by delivering the “truth.” But he did mention that he will miss his “Empire” castmates very much, including embattled actor Jussie Smollett.
“I love the cast members,” Howard told Kryst. “I will miss them a great deal, and the crew.”
These pronouncements come on the heels of being investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice for possible criminal tax evasion.
The Blast obtained court documents that state the U.S. Attorney’s Office is probing into possible financial crimes involving Howard, his third wife Mira Pak and Universal Bridges Inc. which is owned by Pak.
