Law Enforcement: Jussie Smollett Staged Attacked

Empire star Jussie Smollett alleged hate crime could be a hoax.

According to CNN, two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the investigation told CNN that Chicago Police believe Jussie Smollett paid two men to orchestrate the assault.

The brothers, who were arrested Wednesday, were released without charges Friday after Chicago police cited the discovery of “new evidence.” The two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement.

“Information received from the brothers during the interview process have in fact shifted the trajectory of the investigation,” Chicago PD spokeswoman Christine Calace said, without offering more details.

The 36-year-old “Empire” actor, who is gay, declared Thursday on “Good Morning America” that he was certain the two grainy figures seen in footage are the masked thugs he claimed beat him up on Jan. 29 outside a Subway restaurant in Chicago, hurling homophobic and racist slurs at him as they pounded his body.

“This is MAGA country!” the men said as the looped a rope around his neck, the actor claimed. “I don’t have any doubt in my mind that that’s them. Never did,” he declared.
