Jussie Smollett Vacays In Hawaii, Meanwhile He’s Being Sued By Chicago P.D.
Jussie Smollett can’t be bothered with the fact that the city of Chicago is suing him for refusing to pay back over $130K lost in the investigation of his alleged bogus hate crime hoax.
The Empire star was seen vacationing in Hawaii at the Kaloko-Honokōhau National Historical Park. The actor was with his family looking quite relaxed.
Jussie’s charges were previously dropped by prosecutors, leading Chicago P.D. outraged. That has led them to file a suit against him over his refusal to reimburse overtime payments to officers.
In the civil lawsuit filed this week, Chicago P.D. claims Jussie purposely tried to mislead authorities by falsely describing the men he described attacked him as white.
In the lawsuit, the cops claim that Jussie said his attacker was “wearing a ski mask that covered his entire face, with the exception of the area around his eyes, by which [Jussie] could tell the attacker was white-skinned.”
“[Jussie] made this statement despite knowing that the Osundairo Brothers are not white-skinned,” the suit added. “By providing this false description, [Jussie] purposely misled the CPD officers to believe that his attackers were white, when, in fact, [Jussie] knew that his attackers were the Osundairo brothers.”
“At no point did Defendant inform police that he knew his attackers or recognized their appearances or voices,” the suit concluded.
The city already gave Jussie a week to pay back the money. The deadline has passed, and now it seems the actor would rather hit the waves than return to the mainland.
This is the story that keeps on giving, right?
