Whew… Chillay! Jussie Smollett the star of Fox’s Empire has been officially a suspect for staging and reporting a false attack.
The move comes weeks after he initially told police that he was attacked by two “white men” in Chicago who were big Trump supporters; he also went as far as to say that the men threw bleach on him and yelled racial slurs with a noose around his neck…
Two Nigerian brothers who were extra’s on Empire came forward to confirm that Jussie staged the attacked to bring more attention to himself…
According to ABC Chicago 7
Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi confirmed Wednesday afternoon that Jussie Smollett is officially a suspect in a criminal investigation for filing a false police report, a Class 4 felony.
Guglielmi said CPD detectives are currently presenting evidence before a Cook County grand jury.
Wednesday afternoon two brothers who have become central to the investigation were again seen in the courthouse at 26th and California. They were also present Tuesday, when officials said they spoke with prosecutors but did not present any testimony to the grand jury.
On Monday, a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation told ABC News that the brothers told police that Smollett staged the attack on himself because he was upset a threatening letter he received a week prior did not get enough attention.
