    Police Sources: Smollett Orchestrated Attack

    This theory seems to be picking up steam; I surely hope it isn't true.

    Why? You'd rather his fake story be true?????

    It's looking an awful lot like a fake story. The investigators must have a lot of info they can't share yet. Also, I listened to Smollett's story a few times and something about it doesn't sound right.

    It never sounded right. Even from the threatening letter that the studio received. Nobody sends a threat if they're planning to cause harm to someone. And if two men have you subdued to the point that they can pour bleach on you and throw a noose around your neck, you're not going to be well enough to walk home. He had a swollen face and bruised ribs. If you've ever been in a street fight, you know that will not be the outcome of such an encounter. I could go on, but I was initially outraged before details started coming from him about the encounter. Nothing that he said is logical.

    Not only that, Jerry, he embellishes his story too much and attaches conditions to it. That's the very kind of thing that raises red flags. Even when I heard his interview on the car radio, I sensed something wrong with it.

    Well, things are going downhill pretty quickly for him...
    Jussie Smollett Cut From ‘Empire’ Episodes As Attack Probe Continues

    by Dominic Patten

    As the Chicago police investigation into what really happened to Jussie Smollett in the alleged assault last month intensifies its focus on the Empire actor, the Fox drama is cutting the performer out of the action.


    Deadline has confirmed with well placed sources that Smollett’s scenes in episodes of the Lee Daniels and Danny Strong co-created series are being slashed for production on Empire this week.


    While the show is back at work today in the Windy City after the long weekend, Smollett will be a rare presence on the set of the Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard led show.


    The actor has also been absent as Chicago PD request another interview with him. As Smollett himself has become the subject of deeper inquiry into the supposed assault that occurred in the early hours of January 29, detectives want to know more about the actor’s version of what happened that day on the streets of Chicago and any possible knowledge he may have to indicate the incident could have been preplanned.



    The widely condemned attack was previously described as a racist and homophobic barrage that left Smollett beaten, drenched in bleach and with a rope slung around his neck. Openly gay, Smollett portrays the openly gay Jamal Lyon on Empire.


    Now the reality appears to be more complex or at least convoluted.


    There are no plans right now to make any changes to the remaining episodes of the fifth season of Empire that are already in the can, I hear.


    Yet, despite the strongly expressed renewed support by Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney on February 17, upcoming episodes have seen serious rewrites in recent days to reduce the increasingly besieged Smollett’s role both in dramatic stints and musical performances.


    Empire returns for the remainder of its fifth season on March 13.


    Fox had no comment on Smollett’s scenes being cut, nor would the network confirm any such reports, as first noted by TMZ earlier Tuesday. Reps for the lawyered-up Smollett did not return request for comment by Deadline.


    While Smollett is not considered a formal suspect at present, prosecutors and law enforcement authorities are seeking to be enlightened by him about his private relationship with Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo.


    The brothers were previously described by Chicago police as “potential suspects” in the attack and arrested last week. Identified as the individuals in the photos of “persons of interest” in the Smollett case, the two were held without charge for 48 hours and then let go on the night of February 15.


    Formerly Empire extras, the Osundario siblings, at least one of whom had been Smollett’s personal trainer, are now “fully” cooperating with authorities. They have sat for a number of interviews with police in recent days.

    I saw this on The Daily Show today. Whatever happened, it's messed up.

    I understand he did this because he thought he wasn't getting paid enough money. Really? Now his life is ruined and he set the cause for civil rights back. He wanted the attention, well now he's got it!

    You're right, soulster. The worst part about it is there was a huge uptick in reported hate crimes since Dear Leader's ascension and the press is paying a lot more attention to this asshole than the thousands of people with legitimate grievances.

    Smollett reaps the rewards of men and women who have spent their lives fighting for civil rights, for gay rights – for human rights. He walks on the graves of those who gave all fighting for their rights (and the rights of future generations). And he decides to just piss on all of it. And for personal gain no less. I am so sad and so angry. SMH.

    this whole thing hasn't really made sense from the get go. Who's out at 2AM on a freezing winter Chicago night ? Who conveniently carries around a noose? How was Jussie identified as gay?
    Once we know it's fake., there's these thoughts .... why did you go out of your way to simulate a quasi- "lynching" with noose imagery, why go out of your way to make it seem like there's a Trump connection? What specifically would Jussie personally gain (?) by this scheme anyway ? Why were Kamala and Booker so eager to jump on it ( and these two politicians specifically) with each referencing lynching in their comments?


    Now I've stumbled on this food for thought which seems to connect some of these dots:

    was he a willing sacrificial lamb for a bigger cause??

    When I first heard this story I said it does not makes sense and he is lying. Now he's been arrested, bailed out, will stand trial and will go to jail. Case Closed!

    Your link to American Thinker is not food for thought for me. Its a right wing pro President Pus*y Grabber website that post far right views and there Twitter feed proves how in the bag they are for the Orange fool.

    I agree with you. Thats not the way to get a pay increase. Hes ruined his life and set back good causes for civil and LGBT rights. I suspect theres a huge ego involved laeding him to believe he would get away with it. SMH.

    the thing about food for thought , you've got to have an appetite for it.

    I have no appetite for anything related to President Pus*y Grabber or his deranged base. The mans a pathologicall liar a mysoginistic pig and a fool and a crook and the damage hes done to the EPA and civil rights and human rights is disgusting. His tax cuts were a big scam. I usually get about $1600 back and this year I had to pay $973. Hes a fraud and your right wing trump loving American Thinker just made me mad. Sorry!!!!

    here we go with the name calling and topic deflecting , straight from the left's playbook of civil engagement.

    You don't have to go anywhere near my link (which is entirely about ideas put forward by black film director Tariq Nasheed). YouTube now has plenty of other sources for you to "digest".

    Thats real rich coming from someone whos posting links to far right "news" sites. As for deflecting I stated above that hes ruined his life and set back good causes for civil and LGBT rights and i did that without pushing any left or right agenda. Speaking of deflecting the far right never answer questiions about President Pus*y Grabbers paying off whores and pornstars. All they say is we forgive him cause hes pro-life. UIts BS and you know it.
