Word is that he is being replaced by Tyrese for the 2nd season of Empire, so he was already pissed from the jump.
Derek married the love of his life, Sophia Adella, years ago, during the time he was coming on the scene as one of the top new African-American actors.
Derek explained in an interview years ago that he was molested as a child and his wife Sophia help him cope with the ordeal.
His fans still don’t care.
Unlike Jamie Fox, Derek Luke wasn’t hiding his love because she wasn’t black. He wanted the world to know Sophia was his.
But a person can only take so much.
Derek went on a rant after reading several comments from fans complaining about his wife being white.
I never usually entertain the opinions of others because everyone is entitled to they’re own opinion. (Positive or Negative)
But we’re in the year of 2015 & when should it be a “problem” to date outside of your race? Why is that an issue AGAIN? I’m doing the unusual & going through my comments & the comments I see about my wife being another race is bugging me out.
Who one chooses to date is that persons business.
Instead of focusing on (Happiness) & (pure Love) for some reason some folks are still focused on (Color). Doesn’t make any sense to me. But I guess that’s the ignorance of OTHERS.
My wife may not be Black but she is mine. And she’s mine with a heart of gold.
People are so quick to judge but can’t even distinguish the difference of another’s race.
Sophia Luke is Hispanic. She’s not white, she’s not black, she’s not Chinese, she’s Hispanic.
And she’s mine!!
