Jussie Smollett Is Now Suing the City of Chicago for the Way They Handled His Alleged Hate Crime

By

The mystery surrounding Jussie Smollett’s alleged assault in January 2019 continues to get more bizarre. Nearly 10 months after the incident, the actor isn’t backing down from his claims that two men in ski masks verbally and physically attacked him on a street in Chicago. 

Jussie told police at the time that the perpetrators called him racial and homophobic slurs before throwing an unknown liquid at him and placing a noose around his neck. Less than a month later, the investigation took a 180-degree turn when law enforcement accused the 37-year-old of staging the hate crime.

On Nov. 20, it was revealed that the former Empire star is still actively fighting to clear his name in what has become a very public battle with the Chicago P.D.
