Delonix Regia roots and shade

Hello there!
I have a couple of questions regarding the Delonix Regia (Royal Poinciana). 1. Does it have a very violent root system? Will it raise sidewalks and/or try to penetrate the foundations of buildings? 2. Is it true that no grass can grow under it? Is the foliage that thick?
Thank you in advance, Danny
