BREAKING: Police Investigating Whether “Empire” Actor Staged Attack With Help of Others

Chicago police believe that the alleged attack on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett was staged, according to two local media reports. 

The Chicago Police Department denied the report, saying the idea that the attack was a hoax was “unconfirmed by case detectives.” Police on Thursday interviewed two persons of interest in the case. ABC 7 in Chicago reported that “multiple sources” said that Smollett and the two men staged the attack because his character was being written off the show. CBS Chicago cited a source who said that investigators believe the “non-cooperating 2 witnesses are co-conspirators in a potentially staged attack.” Pamela Sharp, a spokeswoman for Smollett, said that the reports were “ridiculous rumors.”
