Jussie Smollett Begs Empire Cast to Believe Him

He faces one felony count of filing a false police report.

He originally said he was jumped and beaten up by two men who shouted homophobic and racial slurs, but according to prosecutors, Smollett paid two brothers $3,500 in a check to stage the attack. "I'm also angry", said Johnson. He also said they yelled "This is MAGA country" - an apparent reference to President Donald Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again". We have to love each other regardless of what sexual orientation we are, because it shows that we are united. and no racist f*** can come in and do the things that they did to you.

Police initially treated the matter as a hate crime, but they could not find video of the incident from surveillance cameras in the area.

With just a couple of episodes left to be completed in the current season of Empire, producer and writers on the Mahoney showrun series had already cut or trimmed a number of Smollett's remaining scenes so today's move isn't a seismic shift in that sense.

A fake story by a mediocre actor is not the same as fake news by the media. "I'm sorry I've put you all through this and not answered any calls", he reportedly said.

February 1: Smollett spoke out for the first time since the alleged attack via a statement to Essence: "Let me start by saying that I'm okay".

February 2: During a concert in West Hollywood, Smollett's first public appearance since the alleged attack, he thanked audience members for their support.

Kylie has not yet commented on the issue but TUKO.co.ke understands she is conflicted and trying to figure things out. And despite the scandal, the 34-year-old seemed in a good mood as she arrived at Kanye West's office in Calabasas.

Johnson said Smollett, 36, choreographed the attack because he was dissatisfied with his salary.

Every former or future victim of real crime should be mad as hell about what appears to be Jussie Smollett's hoax attack story.

February 13: Two men were quietly taken into police custody after landing at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport from Nigeria.

First, it gives prosecutors the option of charging or threatening to charge them with lying to a grand jury if it ever looks like they might try to recant their statements about Smollett.

At that pretty conclusive and damning hearing on claims that Smollett's pre-planned the January 29 attack that attracted so much outrage from the likes of Empire co-creators Lee Daniels and Danny Strong, the actor's defense lawyers oddly insisted that Smollett needed to get back to work on Empire, which was continuing production.

Later that morning, police announced that they had identified the "persons of interest in the area of the alleged attack", but noted that they were not suspects. "But this publicity stunt was a scar Chicago didn't earn and certainly didn't deserve".
