We love Tracee Ellis Ross — and we love Jenifer Lewis — so it makes us a little sad to hear that the two ladies can’t seem to get along on the set of ‘Black-ish.’

Black-ish stars Tracee Ellis Ross and Jennifer Lewis may play family members on the hit ABC comedy, but the two are apparently anything but familiar when the cameras aren’t rolling. An insider tells RadarOnline.com exclusively the two stars have been butting heads on set, even shutting down production for a time.
“Tracee can’t stand Jennifer and vice versa, they’re like oil and water, they don’t mix well,” says the source. “They’re just like their characters — Jennifer wants to be the boss and Tracee isn’t having it.”
According to on-set insiders, the entire production shut down for about 30 minutes a few weeks ago because of the drama between the two actresses.
Source says there were some heated words exchanged between the two women after Lewis called out Ross for talking while she was trying to read her lines.
Eventually, the women settled down and went on with the show. But feathers were clearly ruffled.
“Jennifer is way over the top 24/7,” the source revealed. “On the set AND in real life.”
This isn’t the most unbelievable story we’ve heard, but we hope that both ladies can leave whatever issues they have with each other in 2018 and enter 2019 with a fresh start.
