Dark Secrets The Cast Of Empire Tried To Hide SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/4JLjF89hz34 : https://youtube.com/ashbgame : Fox’s Empire is known for its on-screen drama, but what goes on behind-the-scenes might be even more juicy than anything we’ve sees on screen. From on-set meltdowns to lawsuits and everything in between, these are secrets that should have stayed on the Empire set.
Jussie Smollett made headlines in January 2019 when he went for a 2 a.m. sandwich run that ended in an assault – or did it?
The Empire star told Chicago police he was attacked by two men who assaulted him with slurs, bleach, and a rope around his neck, all while shouting Donald Trump’s slogan of “MAGA ” – or “Make America Great Again.” The outlandish account was widely denounced as a hate crime, but the story soon began to unravel.
Police identified two men, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, as persons of interest. After being scooped up by police, the brothers said that Smollett paid them to stage the attack, which police allege was done to raise Smollett’s profile – and maybe get him an increase on his Empire salary.
Just weeks after being seen as a sympathetic victim of a heinous crime, Smollett was arrested on felony charges for falsifying a police report, which could land the actor in jail. He was also cut from the final two episodes of Empire’s fifth season. He maintains his innocence. Watch the video for more about these Dark Secrets The Cast Of Empire Tried To Hide.
