Jussie Smollet Fired From Empire

Multi talented actor and singer, Jussie Smollet has been fired from Empire, after he pleaded with the creator Lee Daniels to keep his job, according to a new source.

Jussie Smollet’s final episode with the mega FOX show was 7 days ago, which featured his character, Jamal Lyon, getting married in a gay wedding. unfortunately the last episode turned out to become the lowest rated in the history of the series.

Jussie Smollet made global headlines during the first quarter of 2019, when he confessed to the police that he was beaten by two Trump supporters who yelled racist and homophobic words at him outside his Chicago apartment in January.

The actor was arrested by the police in February and he was charged with 16 felony disorderly conduct counts for making a false police report. But in a strange twist, Chicago’s top prosecutor Kim Foxx dropped all charges against the Jussie Smollet.

But Kim Foxx couldn’t save Jussie’s career. He was fired from Empire.

“Jussie thought he’d get to ride it out,” a source reveals. The source also revealed the actor held private meetings with creator Lee Daniels and pleaded for his job.

“He thinks he’s way too important. Jussie always felt the show would send an important message to the world if his character, the gay son, continued the family’s legacy. Being written off wasn’t anything he ever imagined.”
