Where are the cookies? The “Empire” may just be falling a part. Actor Jussie Smollett has been indicted by a grand jury in Chicago on 16 felony counts after allegedly lying to police about being the victim of a racist and homophobic hate crime.
In January, the city of Chicago used all of its resources to track down surveillance footage of an alleged attack where two masked men beat up the actor, doused him with bleach and put a noose around his neck in frigid temperatures.
Smollett and his attorneys have denied the allegations against him. We’ll have more information on this story as details are made available.
