The Jussie Smollett saga took another turn this morning.

At approximately 5 am Central Time in Chicago, Illinois, “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett turned himself in to police. He was charged with reporting false information to police.

On January 29th, Jussie reported he was assaulted in Chicago by two men, who allegedly hung a noose around his neck and poured bleach on him.

During their investigation into the assault, Chicago Police allegedly discovered a plot surrounding the assault which Jussie concocted.

And according to the Chicago Police Chief during a press conference this morning, Jussie set all of this up because he’s not happy with the money he’s making from “Empire.”

    If Jussie did this sh-t for real, he’s crazy as f-ck. There are better ways to get more money than faking some sh-t that will put your a-s in a jail cell. This sh-t was not worth it.

    If this is true, this was very stupid of Jussie. If he wanted more money he could have just hired a better PR rep and agent like everyone else does. I mean fake a high profile relationship if you need more buzz. Not a police report and hate crime. All an actor needs is more buzz, more projects, etc. to make more money. And there’s legal ways to do that. This was so unnecessary.

    Hmm. I find this theory hard to believe. It doesn’t seem logical or make sense for him to stage a hate crime against himself just to dispute his salary. How is that going to help him? Likewise, he should be aware that he’d be committing a crime. And, then to go through the whole ordeal of being beaten up, etc.. that just seems so ridiculous. This is some nonsense and shenanigans. Who would do this?! 😳

    The most logical thing imo is Jussie really was beat up by those brothers, but they lied and said he paid them to do it to save their own a-ses. I believe they planned the attack for a personal reason they are too ashamed to disclose. And I’ll leave it at that.

    The Chicago Police Department has a long history of being corrupt. And you never know how desperate a celebrity can be for attention. So with that being said, I have no idea what’s the truth anymore. So I’m going to sit back and see how this all plays out.

    Wish the cops in Florida had this same energy when that piece of s##t george zimmerman killed that unarmed innocent black teen Trayvon Martin! Jussie was wrong for doing this but dang he being crucified while real murderers are getting off Scott free.
