“I’m the gay Tupac” Jussie Sets The Record Straight at LA Performance

In the first show since his Chicago attack, Jussie Smollett told concert attendees he’s not fully healed yet, but he’s “gonna stand strong.”

With roughly 300 people in attendance, Jussie said he just couldn’t let his attackers prevail and cleared the air about some misreported information regarding his assault.

“I fought the f*ck back”

Before beginning his set and with his sister behind him, Jussie addressed his fans with four points. He said that he was bruised but his ribs weren’t cracked or broken. He didn’t drive himself to the hospital, Frank Gatson, his creative director, drove him. Although he he was not hospitalized, he isn’t fully healed. Jussie’s physicans cleared him to perform. Above all, Jussie wanted to make it clear that he defended himself.

Holding back tears, Jussie called for support but implored fans to stop spreading hate.

“I don’t even care to name names. The hateful rhetoric that gets passed around, it has to stop. But guess what, it stops with the people that believe in love.”

He then emboldened attendees by saying there’s no time like the present to be “blacker and gayer.”

Investigation Updates

February 1st, Chicago Police Department Superintendent Eddie Johnson spoke about the case.

In the second clip, when asked if he believed Jussie was being truthful Superintendent Johnson replied, “He’s providing the facts as he knows them”.

Potentially motivated by increased speculation that his initial account was not completely honest, Jussie addressed detractors. He continues to insist that he is cooperating with authorities and that he has “been 100% factual and consistent on every level.” But his reluctance to turn over his cell phone has left many unconvinced.

Chicago Police have stated that they will not demand the Empire star turn over his device after he declined their request on Thursday. Smollett has selected not to share telephone records that could potentially show the actor was on the phone with his manager during the time of the assault. As of now, it is unclear if detectives intend to use a third-party to obtain the records independently.

50 Cent Emanuel Gonzalez

Deputy Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez is now under investigation following reports that he allegedly told officers to shoot 50 cent on sight during roll call.

On the morning of February 17th, 50 Cent took to Twitter to share news of the threat he received from the NYPD inspector. Employed at the 72nd Precinct in Sunset Park, the Deputy told officers June 7th of 2018 to shoot the rapper on sight when he was expected to attend an NYPD sanctioned boxing event.

NYPD officials have now confirmed that after the Daily News report of the threat emerged, a full investigation is underway. The threat on 50 Cent’s life was made when he was expected to be in the Bronx. Astounded by the lack of corruption within for force, Curtis “50 Cent” James Jackson III plans to pursue legal action and is consulting with his team to review his options

Although the news of a threat on his life is disconcerting, 50 wants fans to remember “there are some good people working in Law Enforcement. Like the officers that reported what he said to them.” He then called Emanuel Gonzalez a “gangsta with a badge,” and questioned his employment as a commanding officer.

Jussie Smollett

Police have identified two Nigerian men as suspects in Jussie Smollett’s case. The men have been questioned in the attack on the “Empire” star and have been arrested on probable cause.

Identified as brothers, the two men have been questioned by police in Chicago following their arrival from Nigeria. The suspects were apprehended at Chicago O’Hare International Airport on Wednesday after authorities learned one of them was connected to “Empire.” Following the Chicago Police receiving and executing a search warrant, authorities are not disclosing what was found within the shared apartment.

In a statement provided to Associated Press by Anthony Guglielmi, Chief Communications Officer of the Chicago PD, there was emphasis placed on the nature of the suspects arrest. At this time, both persons have been arrested for probable cause alone.

Breaking the Silence

For the first time since the January 29th attack, Jussie Smollett has sat down for an interview. Robin Roberts of Good Morning America inquired about what happened that fateful evening and how Jussie was responding to those who doubt his claims. Jussie took the opportunity to share what happened during the attack, clear up what his assailants said while assaulting him, and added his manager was on the phone the entire time.

When it comes to what his attackers looked like, Jussie says, “I can’t tell you what color their eyes were” as their appearance was obstructed by ski masks. He provided a body description to officers and noted that he only saw them completely as they were running away. Robin then asked if Jussie believed the men in the photo were his attackers and he said, “I don’t have any doubt in my mind that’s them.”
