Jussie Smollett Arrested Over False Attack Report

US actor Jussie Smollett has been arrested in Chicago after being charged with filing a false police report.

The Empire star had said he was subjected to a homophobic and racist physical attack by two men in January.

Police suspect the 36-year-old actor paid two Nigerian brothers to stage the attack. They are both co-operating with the investigation, US media report.

His lawyers have not yet commented. On Wednesday, they said they would "mount an aggressive defence".


  1. How can someone be so gullible to stage his own attack?

  2. One of the main reasons to never believe some stories at first

  3. Why so dumb @Smollet? I hope the actual victims will be continue to speak up, be believed and get justice they deserve.
