Empire Actor Jussie Smollett Has Been Charged With Faking His Own Assault

Jussie Smollett, the “Empire” actor who said he was the victim of a hate crime, was indicted Wednesday night by an Illinois grand jury that found probable cause that he had actually staged the assault he reported to Chicago police in January.



Law enforcement officials said a grand jury had decided that Mr. Smollett falsely reported being attacked in a case that quickly drew national attention, and charged him with a felony count of disorderly conduct.

Mr. Smollett, who is black and openly gay, had told the police that, while walking in downtown Chicago, he had been confronted by masked men who hurled homophobic and racial slurs at him, and announced it was “MAGA country,” a reference to President Trump’s campaign slogan.

Mr. Smollett had received an immediate outpouring of public support. Many cited his account as an example of another in a rising tide of hate crimes, which the F.B.I. reported last fall had increased for the third straight year.


Mr. Smollett has continued to vehemently insist the incident occurred just as he reported it. A representative for him, Pamela Sharp, said that she was “aware of the news” but had no further comment.

In a statement Wednesday evening, the Chicago police said Mr. Smollet “is now officially classified as a suspect in a criminal investigation by #ChicagoPolice for filing a false police report (Class 4 felony). Detectives are currently presenting evidence before a Cook County Grand Jury.”

From the start, investigators had difficulty corroborating Mr. Smollett’s story, even with about a dozen detectives assigned to the case.


No surveillance cameras caught the attack. There were no witnesses. He had not reported it from the scene, and when he got home was still wearing a noose that he said the perpetrators had placed around his neck.

Investigators, though, were able to track two men who appeared on video footage not far from the scene that night. Using ride share data, they discovered the two were brothers who in fact knew Mr. Smollett. One had acted as an extra on “Empire.”

The police initially identified the brothers as possible suspects in the attack, but then released them without filing any charges. The men had reportedly told investigators that Mr. Smollett had coordinated a faux attack and paid them to participate in it.


The brothers, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, were brought in as witnesses to the grand jury Wednesday evening with their lawyer.

Filing a false police report in Illinois is technically referred to as disorderly conduct and can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. In Mr. Smollett’s case, the police said the grand jury had decided on a felony count, which carries a maximum sentence of three years in prison.


As Mr. Smollett first described the attack it occurred at 2 a.m. on Jan. 29. He said his assailants hit him in the face, bruising him, then poured a chemical substance on him as he walked back home along Lower East North Water Street, after a trip to buy a tuna sandwich. Mr. Smollett, in a follow-up interview with detectives, said the attackers had mentioned “MAGA country.”

  11. He is a black. Police in the USA are mainly racist. They can even forge evidence to turn the clock against him. So I don't believe this. If is a white now, the story will be different.

    What was he even thinking? This boy was loved. You could tell by the reaction of people at first.
    Hiring people to do the dirty for him was dumb. If the Popo didn't get him, these boys were going to spill later anyways.
    Who goes around after an attack with a noose around their neck? Who doesn't put Surveillance cameras into consideration when committing a crime in a country like his?
    This is sad! I like this boy

  28. Mental health is a big (America) US & Canada issue. U can see a big star ( sports, movie & entertainment) and celebrities affected by mental disorders without seeking for help or acknowledged by the system as someone sick. Until they end up in jail or get criminal record.
    Delusional thoughts, psychotic & sociopath disorders very rampant among the elite & top income earners among the population.
    Even many immigrants, among them Nigerians r very sick in the head & yet functioning daily as normal people, till they lash out & do very outrageous thing unexpectedly one day.

    Why would he stage an attack against himself? What is he trying to prove there?
    Just seeking for crazy attention or public sympathy!

  31. Too bad for Jussie and with this, when he really falls into trouble, no one would probably be moved to help him as they might think he is faking it again.

    He has it all and need not have pulled such a stunt but then again, does he? Many are fighting demons no one can tell because they are keeping silent about it.
