At the moment, it is known that the star of the series “Empire” is detained by the police.
Chicago police indicted actor Jussi Smollett (“The Empire” series) for giving false testimony, as well as acting as an assassination attempt. This was reported by CNN .
The police are planning to get the actor arrested. At the moment it is known that Smollett is already detained.
Recall that in late January, the actor told the police about the attack on him. According to Smollett, this happened in Chicago – the actor was attacked by two unknown men in masks, throwing a rope loop around his neck and pouring bleach over him. The attackers allegedly shouted homophobic and racist insults (Smollett is an open black gay). After some time, the suspects were detained, but the police had doubts and a theory that the actor himself faked the attack, paying the attacker.
