Fleur East lost out on a part in ‘Empire’ because she had visa problems.

The former X Factor star was very disappointed t she couldn’t take on a role in Lee Daniels’ US musical drama series because she didn’t have the appropriate paperwork.

She said: “I have my fingers in so many pies. I have music that I recorded over a year-and-a-half ago when I was with Syco that is coming out at the end of the year and I’ve been doing a bit of acting as well. I came really close to being in Empire but I didn’t have the right visa.”

Although she was disappointed with losing out on a role in Empire, at least she’s been busy with other ventures and will be extremely busy once the new music comes out too!
