Producers of star series “Empire” are considering a possible suspension of star Jussie Smollett following his charges with a felony on Wednesday.
Chicago Police said, “Smollett who stars as ‘Jamal’ was on Wednesday charged with filing a false report and disorderly conduct”.
Smollett told police last month that he was attacked by two people who allegedly yelled racist and homophobic slurs at him, tied a rope around his neck and poured a chemical substance on him.
Chicago PD eventually questioned two brothers, Abel and Ola Osundairo, who were in the vicinity of the event. The two men were arrested and questioned, but later released. Local Chicago media reported that the brothers told detectives that Smollett had paid them to stage the attack.
