36-year-old ‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett has issued the city of Chicago a stern WARNING!
The city has demanded Smollett to pay back the $130,000 spent investigating an alleged hate crime which they believe he staged, however Smollett’s famous lawyer Marc Geragos has issued a statement courtesy of Smollett saying the actor will NOT pay Chicago any money.
Geragos says in his statement: “Mr. Smollett will not be intimidated into paying the demanded sum. Mr. Smollett vehemently denies making any false statements.” He also said that if Chicago were to take any action against Jussie, that Mayor Emanuel and Superintendent Johnson would have to provide testimony under OATH for issuing Jussie a I Owe U “in which you (Jussie) falsely claimed that two men attacked you while yelling racial and homophobic slurs. Over two dozen detective and police officers participated in the investigation, ultimately spending weeks investigating your false claims, including a substantial number of overtime hours. Ultimately, the Chicago police investigation revealed that you knowingly filed a false report and had in fact orchestrated your own attack.” Let us know: DO YOU THINK JUSSIE SMOLLETT SHOULD PAY BACK CHICAGO? DO YOU THINK HE’S INNOCENT?
