Looks like Terrence Howard is letting this one go!
On Sunday, Terrence posted a sweet photo of himself and once frenemy Robert Downey Jr.! The two were both at the wedding of mutual friend Brian Grazer.
For those who don't know, Howard and Downey had a bit of a falling out during the time of the first Iron Man sequel. According to a 2013 interview with the actor, Robert subsequently had him replaced with Don Cheadle due to his hefty salary request.
Whether the story is true or not, it definitely caused a sore spot for the Empire star:
"This is going to get me in a lot of trouble, but who gives a f*ck. It turns out that the person that I helped become Iron Man when it was time to re-up for the second one, took the money that was supposed to go to me and pushed me out."
Yikes, that one has to hurt!
Despite the pair's issues and R.D.J. allegedly not taking Terrence's calls for THREE MONTHS, the two were able to mend their fences this past weekend.

The Empire duo HIGHariously portrayed Kimye in a Kardashian Christmas sketch during their Taraji and Terrence's White Hot Holidays special on Wednesday!
The skit contained all the necessary Kardashian-West props — including selfies, big butts, and a Christmas baby Yeezus!
We're not sure what the funniest part was, Henson's nasally Kim impression or when Howard mistook a house lamp for Sia!
Ch-ch-check out the funny clip (below) to see the Lyons take on the famous couple!
What didn't happen last night?
Now, almost a year later, most of that charm has worn off and the hit FOX drama is trying to up the ante by throwing whatever it can at the wall to see what sticks.
Wednesday night marked the show's first ever mid-season finale, and with it came practically too much drama to handle.
Not only did Taraji P. Henson's Cookie return to jail — to perform for her former cellmates — Yazz's Hakeem voted against Terrence Howard's Lucious so he's now out of a job, and on top of all that and Naomi Campbell's Camilla finally returned to stir things up!
But in the most intense scene of all Kaitlin Doubleday's very pregnant Rhonda was pushed down the stairs by a mysterious assailant!
We're still loving the show, but if Rhonda or her baby die we will riot.
Unfortunately, Empire isn't coming back for another four months, but make sure to catch the Lyon family when they get back in action Wednesday, March 30 at 9 p.m. EST on FOX!

***WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD***
Well, that was unexpected.
And after a first season that established just how far its characters were willing to push boundaries, the FOX musical drama finally recreated the magic on Wednesday night's new episode by revealing a twist…
One of the main characters is pregnant!!!
Taraji P. Henson must be getting so tired talking Empire, but that's not stopping her!
The 45-year-old is the latest to cover BELLA NYC magazine's holiday issue, opening up about FOX's hit show.
But before we even go there, we can't not mention her stunning editorial for the mag!
From the peek we've seen, Taraji unleashes her smolder in an all cream suit for one shot, and then a sequined look fit for any holiday party!
Save the drama for your mama!
However, Cookie isn't going to let the haters have the last word!
On Wednesday, the 45-year-old actress posted a HIGHlarious video on Instagram of her and her co-star having a make-believe fight!
The fiesty diva captioned it:
"HA! Word on THA street is Terrence and I don't get along! Like I would fight to work with someone I DO NOT get along with?!Don't be silly. #GottaComeBetterThanThat#StupidRumors#DummysWastedPaperAndInkOnthatBS… oh and watch #Empiretonight"
Preach the truth girl!
Furthermore, co-star Jussie Smollett and director Sanaa Hamri even make cameos!
We're so glad Taraji and Terrence are NOT feuding, and are totally making fun of the fake reports!
To see the knee-slapping videos, ch-ch-check them out (below)
Well this is inneresting!
On Wednesday night's Empire, Lucious Lyon was stuck behind bars, but that didn't stop him from recording a track from inside the joint!
Though the episode received quite a bit of praise and was trending on Twitter, the actor/rapper received mixed reviews for his rap song in the episode — titled Snitch Bitch.
Ch-ch-check out the track for yourself (above) and then see some HIGHlarious responses calling the actor out for his lack of rapping skills (below)!
