CONFIRMED: Jussie Smollett Will NOT Return To 'Empire'

Jussie Smollett is not returning to ‘Empire,’ co-creator Lee Daniels says

The dispatcher told Gatson that he couldn't file a report on Smollett's behalf, but Gatson promised that Smollett would file a report. I'm scared and I don't know what it is. They put a noose around his neck.

In March, criminal charges against Smollett for allegedly staging the assault on himself were dropped following what prosecutors in the United States city of Chicago described as "a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case".

Daniels took to Twitter to clear up a Variety report that alleged writers were prepping for the embattled actor's Season six return. "I just want to report it and make sure he's alright".

Smollett reportedly didn't want to make the call himself, so he had a friend call the police for him, CBS Chicago reported. "I'm gonna make him make the report". "I'm gonna make him make the report", Gatson assured them. "That's pretty (expletive) up to me - sorry for saying it like that". The caller did not name Smollett but said a person was attacked.

The man expressed concern about a perceived delay in police response during the second call.

"I thought they'd be here by now", he says.

On the night of the call, Smollett claimed that he was in the Streeterville neighborhood of Chicago when he was attacked by two men around 2 a.m.

"We want to be clear, this was a racial and homophobic hate crime", the statement continued.

The actor had been facing disorderly conduct charges for allegedly staging a hoax attack and claiming he was the victim of a hate crime. Then came the detail about the noose.

Jussie Smollett is not returning for the final season of Empire.

Smollett has denied all allegations made against him by police. The Fox star was indicted on 16 felony charges on March 8, but the Cook County State's Attorney's Office angered Chicago police and Mayor Rahm Emanuel by dropping all of Jussie's charges on March 26!
