Jussie Smollett’s former cast-mates are missing his presents on-set. They believe his role as the gay character, Jamal on Empire(married scene on Empire below) is important to the show. Taraji P Henson, Terrence Howard and others began a campaign to convince Empire, and Fox to bring back Smollett. Taraji was so confident that Smollett was going to be back on Empire. She earlier on was talking to the future of the show with Smollett involved.
The writing on the wall appeared clear to us that Smollett would be fired. The ratings on Empire began tanking since Smollett’s lies saying he was attacked by masked white men. The disgraced actor paid$10,000 Smollett as part of his release condition. If Smollett is innocent- there would not be so much cover-up in his case. We can only obviously suspect Smollett heavily supporting the cover-up of the truth.
The city of Chicago are now trying to retrieve upwards of $300,000 from Smollett. Partly for the police manpower into investigating false claims. Then the other half for monies said to be for interest fees and other legal fees. Empire is on the slide in the ratings, and bringing Smollett back would be a huge risk. This is a person accused by police of wasting their time. The public is mentally exhausted from Smollett’s changing stories, and the overall case of Smollett’s claims are far from convincing.
