Jussie Smollett paid $3,500 to stage his attack, hoping to promote his career (Read 5149 times)

Shortly after they cops found the 2 brothers, the producers said his character will be written off.  This is also prior to the video of them buying the supplies.  So I think the producers didn't want him back because it would open a can of worms.  I never watched the show so IDK how important he was to the story line.

He is still maintaining his story, but I think the atty is being looked into.  IIRC, he hired Avenatie's atty also.  Who was also busted.

I don't watch, but I read his character was married and went off on a long honeymoon.  So, not permanently written out of the story.  He can be "absent" until the show decides whether they want him back.
Liberal:  Someone who is passionately concerned with issues about which they know absolutely nothing.

Jussie Smollett's case to proceed in Chicago: federal judge

Quote
A federal judge ruled on Tuesday that the lawsuit against actor Jussie Smollett will not be dismissed.

The suit asks that Smollett reimburse the police department the $130,000 spent on investigating his alleged attack, which he asked to be dismissed because he couldn't have known how much time and money was spent on the investigation.

Quote
With the appointment of the special prosecutor, there remains the possibility that Smollett -- who has maintained his innocence -- could be charged again with staging the attack.

We can only cross our fingers and hope. He really needs to be held accountable for this.

He won't because of who he's friends with.  It's all for show.

Held accountable, yeah, I also hope so.  Realistic?  Doubtful.  Even if he loses the suit and has to pay $130k, meh.  I bet he even benefits from this in may way in the future.  So many will forget the details, he'll stay out of spotlight for a while (already happening) and he'll come back with some issue.  Similar with Kap. . .

Yeah, like that.  Or be a champion for the fake downtrodden. . . The face of a distraction movement. . .

I do very much believe in karma/bachi.  While I wouldn't wish death on him or anything, if he eventually was mugged, then. . .

His friends in the prosecutor's office may have helped him with the criminal charge but they can't help him with a civil case. He is going to have to have more friends.

Well, will his “friends” help with the special prosecutor?

He does and they will help.  I know who his "friends" are, not just in the prosecutor's office.

Have to resort to character assassination then.

Jussie Smollett sues city of Chicago for malicious prosecution

Quote
Jussie Smollett says the $10,000 he was mandated to pay after the criminal case against him was closed should prevent the city of Chicago from seeking reimbursement for the police investigation following his claim, back in January 2019, that he was a victim of a racist and homophobic attack.

Attorneys for the former "Empire" actor filed a response Tuesday to Chicago’s lawsuit in federal court. They also filed a counterclaim against the city, saying Smollett was the victim of a malicious prosecution that caused humiliation and extreme distress.

He and Kap should just crawl back to their holes. . . Now that reasonable and rational people see them for who they really are, it's not about talent, discrimination, whatever.
