Have we finally reached the end of the Jussie Smollett scandal?

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

According to reports, prosecutors have just dropped all charges against the Empire actor, after he was accused of staging an alleged homophobic and racist attack on himself earlier this year.

The 36-year-old actor attended his court hearing in Chicago yesterday and pleaded not guilty to 16 counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly lying to police about the incident.

"After reviewing all of the facts and circumstances of the case, including Mr Smollett's volunteer service in the community and agreement to forfeit his bond to the City of Chicago, we believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case,” the office of Cook County State's Attorney Kimberly Foxx said in a statement.

It’s currently unclear why prosecutors dropped the charges against Smollett, but the actor has continued to maintain his innocence…

"I have been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one,” he told reporters after leaving court.

"I would not be my mother's son if I was capable of one drop of what I've been accused of."

Although the charges have been dropped without a reason being given, we are still no closer to finding out if Jussie Smollett actually faked the attack, as he was neither proven innocent nor proven guilty. We are all scratching our heads right now…

As you can see, there are still a lot of unanswered questions regarding the case, so we don’t think this will be the last we hear of it…

    So..... is this “black privilege”? Or is it just celebrity privilege? I say celebrity privilege because it’s truly all about your economic status and and/or popularity/fame and nothing to do with your race.

    I heard the Obama's stepped in and just had the DA outright drop the charges in a "Double Standard" type move

    He still faces Federal Felony charges for using USPS to mail himself a hoax racist letter (that failed to get the attention he wanted, so he did the hoax racist attack instead), AND FBI looking into what happened with dropping of charges in Illinois. George Soros gave $408,000 to prosecutor Kimberly Foxx's election PAC.
