jussie smollett is flippin’ mad we don’t believe him (releases statement)

he’s so handsome too.
the f-bi has been on the trail of this case since tonight’s news.
i’ve been getting a ton of dms and emails with small developments.
a vix-bi we all love sent me jussie’s official statement.
this is what “variety” posted through his attorneys,
victor p. henderson and todd s. pugh

“As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with. He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack. Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying.

“One of these purported suspects was Jussie’s personal trainer who he hired to ready him physically for a music video. It is impossible to believe that this person could have played a role in the crime against Jussie or would falsely claim Jussie’s complicity.

“Jussie and his attorneys anticipate being further updated by the Chicago Police Department on the status of the investigation and will continue to cooperate. At the present time, Jussie and his attorneys have no inclination to respond to ‘unnamed’ sources inside of the investigation, but will continue discussions through official channels.”

welp.
good to know he wasn’t allegedly smashin the mandingo wolf brothers.

i have a question for the foxhole.
something i thought about earlier:

Did he hire the criminal lawyers in case he had to sue the two brothers?

it could be a possibility.
as far as his statement,
the damage at this point is too severe.
he’ll need a major plot twist to shift the court of public opinion.
what that’ll be is anyone’s guess.
let’s hope for the “alien abduction that caused memory loss” angle.

lowkey: the trump mouthpieces are already loving this shit…

sigh.
i might need that alien abuction angle asap.

  1. I think he needs a better PR agent. This statement should have been released before this CNN story went viral and blew up. When news started trickling out that the brothers was blaming him they should have got on top of it.Also this statement should have been posted on his page he has 5 million followers and they could have sent it to other sites to spread the word.It seems like his team is always playing catch up.Like with the GMA interview two weeks after the attack.Well anyway I’m going to bed.

  2. Chile, let Jussie be. Y’all go find y’all a nice piece and get some tonight to take your mind off this foolishness. He ain’t making no one look bad. They don’t already like black guys anyways ….but remember what they did tho. Don’t forget it cuz the next time something happens to one of they asses or one of them come up missing and dead or beat up..don’t say a word. Don’t March, don’t scream and shout, don’t give a speech. Let them be. Take a path..

    Grab some popcorn and watch Noah’s Arc and DL Chronicles.while it’s being covered on CNN.

  3. Bless his little heart 😒

    So not only has he doubled down on his LIE, his lawyers have now tripled down on the LIE. What f*cking universe are they operating in if they think the Chicago PD don’t already have PROOF that Jussie PAID these brothers to help commit a fraud? Then he gives the detectives redacted records which he tried to shield his communications with the brothers before and after the “fake attack.”

    The more he and his PR people tried to bullshit us the angrier I get.

    1. If he did lie, it’s all for attention and publicity, that’s it. It’s nothing more to it. I don’t keep up with him that much. I know some of the films he’s played in but I don’t even watch Empire to begin with.

      Just because he’s a core player on the show doesn’t mean he can’t be written off…That’s what writers get paid to do, make things work through writing. Plenty of celebs have been written off or fired for a number of reasons.

      Lol I come here and see 35 posts about this one dude who may have or may not have lied. All of sudden everyone is a police investigator & must get to the bottom of this because it is unforgivable.

      However, for the right amount of money anyone will shut up and dismiss a case. 🤷‍♂️

      Me still thinks it’s just stuff to confuse and jumble the minds of most consumers and it’s working it seems.

      I wonder if Lee has said anything about this or Taraji and that other dude? 🏳️‍🌈

    1. I wanna know was he smashing Killmonger, T’Challa or both. (I know how dem personal trainers get down for celebs.) His hole is probably wrecked

  4. I woke up thinking what if he’s telling the truth or what if he has had a mental health issue.I’m sorry but I just can’t wrap my mind around why he would do this.Also I follow(IG) several of his close long term friends(brothers) like Karamo Brown,Deondray Gossett(DL Chronicles) and I see in their IG stories they are still saying don’t believe the lies in the media.I know I sound crazy I thought I had accepted this but I think I am still in a little denial,in disbelief.

    1. It doesn’t make any sense. There’s no reason for him to lie. I think is just so convenient that they found these two with a receipt for rope. Hell all the tape footage they have can we see them buying this rope on whatever specified date?

      Some news outlet said he was being written off Empire and he made this whole thing up to help with his sympathy but Lee Daniels like a Tyler Perry type and would probably included him in future projects.

    2. Colette it’s just not making sense. I need you to make it make sense for me with your voice of reasoning. 😂

      I followed Jussie a little too and this is so out of character for him. Forget Empire, he could’ve found another role if he was being written off—his family has many connections to the industry. I see three scenarios:

      *A mental health issue. Some of them are triggered in adulthood. Schizophrenia is one.
      *Drugs.
      *Bad advice, a setup, or a white lie gone bad. Jussie wasn’t the one that called the police.

      1. Empire writers and Fox already put out a statement that he wasn’t being written off.Danny Strong the guy who co created the show said Jussie is the 3rd leading character on the show after Terrence and Taraji so he’s a core player.

        The person who called 911 is Frank Gatson he is a legend(choreography) who has worked with Beyonce,with everybody.He is Jussie’s creative director for his tour.IMO there is no way Frank is going to jeopardize his career,reputation for a hoax.

        I can’t make it make sense.

        The night this happened he was on InstaStory posting updates because his flight was delayed because of the weather.He was delayed 7 or 8 hrs he looked and acted normal in the pics and videos he posted on the plane.

        IDK
        If he orchestrated this I guess we will found out when or if he’s indicted,arrested or whatever happens next.If he is innocent his career, his reputation has probably been destroyed if he’s guilty it’s definitely destroyed.Sad

  5. He could be telling the truth. Maybe he could. It’s not like the media sure as hell does. If he did lie…it’s pretty much no different than what attention seeking thots on Instagram do or those folks that set up challenges. They do anything to get publicity.

    We must keep in mind that Jussie is a black gay man (mixed)…Empire is his cradle. He was the dream boat of the straight females and “my boy” of the straight males…until it was found out he was actually gay in real life.

    Of course we already knew he was on our team since he played in the Skinny way beforehand. Despite being just as credible as Taraji and the other light skin boy, (I forgot his name…) Where else is he popping at with films and music. Sure he played in Alien Covenant..(as a straight man) but his role was pretty minor and the movie was a failure at the box office.

    Not saying he’s lying but a good marketing technique is to get people to feel sympathetic for you to get you to give them likes, comments, shares and money. They do this stuff online all the time. You know like those lazy ass men that be online saying they need a sugar daddy or to Cashapp them or post Amazon wishlist request cause they go to the gym and that’s it?

    It’s pretty much the same way people exploit their “pretty” babies, kids and pets online for recognition and attention.

    Cardi B did the same thing when she got pregnant and then used her being pregnant as a way to make it seem like she was grinding in the studio and a bad bitch when we all know she is just a thot who gets praised for being ratchet and folks call that being real. The world we live in. 👩‍🎤 They pitted her against Nikki for a reason.. They know she will do ANYTHING to be on top, both literally and metaphorically. Her nor Offset can rap yet when you pair them together in the media with the drama, baby & conflict…It all plays off exactly like a live action soap opera & people buy into. I’ll take Foxy Brown over that ghetto mess any day.

    But…It does make me wonder. The hustle of the actors, musicians and such.

    Maybe Jussie wanted more attention on him. Everyone else is doing it these days. Be real…You know people do some crazy stuff to get attention on themselves in this day and age.

    He might not be getting that big of a paycheck cut than we think. Maybe he wanted some more eyes on him or maybe he really did get beat up. Did the Empire make up department give him those bruises? Did Lee give him the idea to do this for publicity. Will this be used as a plot for the new season?????? 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️😲

  6. You know I feel bad for Jussie in this situation because I believe at this point that he is telling the truth but has somehow got caught up in an out of control game of telephone. I’m not really understanding what was or is the lie exactly. What did Jussie say specifically vs. what was reported by news out lets vs. what has been leaked vs. social media speculation and how do you know “As a victim” what to respond to. Did Jussie say that he had broken ribs or was that reported by the news or was that leaked to news outlets like TMZ and if something that was reported is false who bears the responsibility to clear it up, if TMZ (for example) says that Jussie had broken ribs but Jussie never said that or reported it, does Jussie have to come out and clarify that; and if so where does it stop, does he have to come out and respond to everything? I also think all of this proves his position in not wanting to release his phone over to the authorities with all of this “alleged leaking” if he did have naked pictures or a who’s who in gay Hollywood it would be public information by now. I also have a huge question for the Chicago police , what’s up with all of this unofficial leaking, they should just lay out the case as it is but what’s crazy is I don’t think legally they have any obligation to clear anything up even if its wrong; mind you this is the same police department which covered up the Laquan McDonald shooting for a 1 ½ years before the truth finally came out.

  7. I look on my Twitter and see they are going nuts with the JussieSmolletHoax hashtag. The bible thumpers come running out talking about being gay and Sodom and Gomorahh and everything from being black and gay is not the same…and I’m just grinning. Bunch of black dummies. They quote that verse so much about man sex and Sodom but a few verses down Lev 25 says “As for your male and female slaves whom you may have: you may buy male and female slaves from among the nations that are around you.” The bible clearly promotes slavery in the right circumstances but they will say times have changed but don’t have the same thoughts with homosexuality. Huh?? So y’all picking & choosing.

    I can clapback on all of them but I don’t argue with these type of individuals. Imagine saying you are oppressed by the white man but continue to use a book of laws created by a white man and expect your life to be different. Keep on worshipping your “Jaysuz”. I hope none of y’all are arguing with them about this

    None of this will affect me because I am my own man, I am beautiful, successful and confident.

    Y’all should only feel sorry for them because they have already obtained their reward from their Lord. As a result their ignorance continues to allow them to be slaves mentally and they will never get anywhere physically. 🤷‍♂️

  8. Whatever the truth of this situation, I sincerely worry about Jussie’s mental health. If he was attacked, he is probably going to be traumatized for some time. If he set the whole thing up, he’s clearly crying out for help. Either way, I hope he receives the psychological help he needs.

    That said, those Naija musclewolves are hot AF. I definitely have some projects I want to work on with them.
