On the girlfriend front, it does not look like Bryshere is seeing anyone at the moment although whosdatedwho.com notes that he dated Jhonni Blaze and Ayana Charm in the past.
We conclude this update with Bryshere rocking his Versace bathrobe and boxer briefs. These are screencaps from the show.

Bryshere Gray Shirtless and Underwear Photos: Single or Has Girlfriend? (posted 9 February 2015). There’s a new TV/hip-hop star on the rise. His name is Bryshere Gray. He also goes by Yazz The Greatest. And he’s getting great reviews playing the role of Hakeem Lyon on the superhit Fox TV series, Empire.
Not a lot is known about him (someone should create a wikipedia page for this guy) and his fox.com profile isn’t very informative. Thankfully, Bryshere has been very forthcoming in his media interviews so we get to learn stuff like where he’s from, how he got into the acting gig, whether he has a girlfriend, and his celebrity crushes.
For those of you looking for Bryshere Gray shirtless photos.
You’ve got some nice washboard abs, Mr. Gray!
Auditioning for the next installment of Karate Kid?
We see England, we see France. We see Bryshere’s underpants! And it happens to be Jockey. If we work for Jockey, we’d hire this guy to become a Jockey male underwear model.
Want to know more about Bryshere aka Yazz the Greatest? Here’s an excerpt from a recent interview he did with Cosmopolitan Magazine:
Does Hakeem’s musical style mirror your own?
Well, Hakeem’s music is written by Timbaland. I don’t get to write Hakeem’s music. With Yazz, I write every single thing. But both artists are great. I’m playing with the best right now — why not learn from Timbaland?
What has been challenging for you about acting?
Just being honest. Because you’ve got to do things that you’re not comfortable with; you’ve got to make private situations real life. I learned from Will Smith and Jamie Foxx; they told me, “When you feel like you need privacy or you feel like you’re embarrassed doing something, that’s when you’re doing perfect.”
How did you wind up meeting them?
My manager, Charlie Mack, is close friends with both guys. I grew up off Fresh Prince of Bel Air and The Jamie Foxx Show. So when I actually got to meet those guys …
How did you get hooked up with Charlie?
I was doing a showcase in Philly. I was doing a lot of local shows; I was even performing on the street, because I was so eager and ambitious about letting people hear my music. So I was out there and I ran into Charlie. We had a meeting. From there, it’s been nothing but success.
Clearly you’re nothing like Hakeem in real life.
Total opposite. That kid is reckless. He has no guidance, you know? Being Hakeem is challenging.
Do you ever wonder — and this is a personal question, so feel free not to answer it — what you’d do if your dad came back into your life now that you’re famous?
Would you want to talk to him again?
You know, I would. I would. But I would need some time. And it has happened.
Since the show?
Since the show. So I just need some time, and I just need to grow a little bit.
You can almost experience what your character is going through in real life.
Yeah. But the thing is, I’m more cautious than Hakeem. He’s more reckless. So I won’t act out. I’ll keep it all in and handle it as an adult.
Do you have a girlfriend?
No. I’m single.
Would it be hard for you to juggle a girlfriend and work?
If she has the same things to lose as I do, and she has the same ambitions, maybe we could make it work. Hopefully she’s out there.
What’s a big turn-off to you?
A big turn-off to me is putting your mom on the phone when I call you.
Do you have any fantasy guest stars for the show?
I would love for Taylor Swift to come on the show. I would love for her to be out of her element [laughs]. It would be entertaining just to see her a little raw.
Would you want to perform with her?
I would actually want to do an intense scene with her. Because it’s [creators] Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, one of the best writers in the world. So of course it’s gonna be amazing if we could make that happen. Maybe next season.
Did you ever worry that you’d be taken less seriously as a rapper by doing the show?
Well, I’m an entertainer. I’m not just one thing. I’m not just a rapper. I’m not just an actor. I’m a host. I’m a model. I’m not focused on one thing. I’m just committing to acting right now. Once it’s over, I’m going to do other things. I just want you all to enjoy this ride with me.
Who is your celebrity crush?
J.Lo. I didn’t meet J.Lo, but I said hi to her before. At the TSAs in L.A. a couple of weeks ago. I was doing an interview with E! and she was getting ready for her interview and we caught eyes.
You’re the youngest cast-member. Does everyone treat you like the baby?
They treat me like the baby brother, yes. Everybody gives me advice. Working with Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson [who plays Cookie] is amazing. Where I come from, they’re legends. So when I got the chance to even work with them, I was blown away. I learned so much about acting all from those two. And Jussie [Smollett, who plays Jamal] and Trai [Byers, who plays Andre] are truly like brothers. We’ll leave set and we’ll be in our vans going home and we’ll be calling each other on the phone making songs. We’ve got a true brother bond.
