Early this year, Jussie Smollett found himself thrust back into the spotlight in a major way. While in the city of Chicago, where “Empire” is filmed, Jussie Smollett claimed he was attacked. Immediately, the popular actor received tons of support.
However, as he began to share his story, many people said it didn’t make much sense. Soon, an investigation was launched, and the law was actually against Smollett, instead of supporting him. The now-disgraced actor found himself facing criminal charges.
As the case against him continues, Jussie Smollett is fighting back, as any victim would. The former “Empire” actor has filed a lawsuit against the city of Chicago and the brothers who allegedly attacked him. On top of that, he is suing the Chicago Police Department chief, accusing him of malicious prosecution.
