Jussie Smollett allegedly staged his attack because he was dissatisfied with his “Empire” salary. At this point, he might lose everything as Fox tries to figure out how to handle this situation.
“We understand the seriousness of this matter and we respect the legal process,” 20th Century Fox Television and Fox Entertainment said in a statement. “We are evaluating the situation and we are considering our options.”
In the meantime, Jussie returned to the set of “Empire” after his arrest. According to Joyce Onyekwere’s blog, the cast was waiting for him to show up and shoot his scene. When he got there, he told them, “I’m sorry I’ve put you all through this and not answered any calls. I wanted to say I’m sorry and, you know me, I would never do this to any of you, you are my family. I swear to God, I did not do this.”
