The Hollywood actor and singer was allegedly attacked around 2 a.m. on Tuesday, January 29, by two men wearing ski masks who began yelling racial and homophobic slurs.
It was learned the attackers of the Empire star placed a noose around his neck after which they began to punch him and then pour an unknown substance on him screaming:
“This is MAGA country.”
However, a report surfaced on Monday claiming that the actor might have staged the attack himself.
Jussie’s case is heading to a Grand Jury as there are reports that he planned with two Nigerian brothers to attack him then filed a false police report.
According to TMZ, Smollett was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical number in the second to the last episode, which is being shot now but five of his scenes have been cut and his musical number has been canceled.
