Cops Questioning Him and Another ‘Empire’ Actor
2/14/2019 11:50 AM PST
Jussie Smollett is being questioned again by Chicago PD … and officers are also talking to another man, an actor who has also appeared on “Empire” … TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to the case tell us the actor, not Jussie, was picked up by Chicago PD Wednesday night right after he flew into O’Hare Airport. We’re told Jussie was brought in Thursday morning for additional questioning. Another man who was with the actor at O’Hare was also taken in for questioning.
The two individuals are being questioned as “persons of interest.” Police won’t say if they are the same 2 people seen in the grainy image released last month. But, law enforcement sources tell TMZ, they believe the 2 people were at the scene of the alleged attack.
As for how cops ID’d the 2 people they’re questioning — we’re told they used rideshare and/or taxicab records to track their locations the night of the alleged incident.
Jussie is on record saying he believes the 2 men in the grainy image are the ones who attacked him.
