“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.

Wendy Williams

According to PEOPLE magazine, a caller concerned about Wendy Williams’ wellbeing during her lengthy hiatus reported Kevin Hunter to authorities. The anonymous samaritan accused Hunter of allegedly poisoning his now estranged wife.

January 18th, authorities were anonymously contacted and instructed to perform a wellness check on the talk show diva. Implying Kevin Hunter was poisoning Williams, authorities rushed over to their New Jersey home to confirm her safety. When they arrived, Kevin Hunter answered the door and was reported as “hesitant” to allow authorities to enter the home.

Having recently fractured her shoulder, Wendy was found in her bed. However, authorities noted she was suspiciously covered from neck to toe. When questioned about the validity of the caller’s claims, Wendy “became tearful”, yet she denied anything was amiss. Kevin Hunter, who remained present, reportedly said “there had never been any calls to his house regarding domestic violence.” Officers then asked Wendy to confirm she was fine and once she did, they left the property.

Dressed in a way that could only be described as deliberately modest, Cardi B arrived to court in a white ensemble to reject a plea deal in relation to an August assault.

Regarding a strip club brawl that took place in 2018, the ‘Clout’ rapper received an offer to plead guilty where she would have only received a conditional discharge. However, Cardi seemed dissatisfied and rejected the plea. She has been charged with one count of misdemeanor assault and two misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment.

In August 2018, Cardi was allegedly involved in a strip club altercation between two bartenders who were believed to be engaged in an affair with Offset. During the attack, Cardi was said to have thrown chairs and bottles at the victims. Video of the attack shows someone believed to be Cardi picking up an ice bucket and launching it at the girls in rage.

In December, Cardi narrowly avoided jail time by arriving to court just minutes before her hearing. She was threatened with legal action after missing her a court date due to a prior engagement, which was the ‘Twerk’ video shoot. Her decision to reject the offer means the charges levied against her remain and she could face up to one year in jail if convicted.
