Jussie Smollett turned himself into Chicago PD early this morning and now more news is coming in as to why he did this elaborate scheme… It appears he was not only being written off the show, but he was also dissatisfied with his salary.
Chicago Police officials asserted Thursday that actor Jussie Smollett set up a hate crime hoax on Jan. 28 because he was “dissatisfied with his salary” on the Fox series “Empire.”
Police are holding a news conference to discuss the case that has made international headlines amid Smollett’s continued insistence that he was the victim of a vicious attack and he had no involvement in staging the incident. Smollett surrendered to police Thursday morning and will be charged today with filing a false police report.
