Jussie Smollett beat those disorderly conduct charges like Rocky, but the City of Chicago says he still has a $130K tab to pay for the shenanigans.
The City of Chicago’s Law Department has billed the “Empire” actor $130,106.15 for the cost of the Chicago Police Department investigation that determined he was lying about being the victim of a hate crime in January.
The demand letter says Jussie has 7 days to make the payment or they may prosecute him for making false statements to the city.
“A violation of the false statement ordinance imposes a fine of not less than $500.00 and a maximum of $1,000.00, plus up to three times the amount of damages the City sustains as a result of the violation,” the letter states.

An embarrassment would recognize another embarrassment…
Chicago “mayswell” let Jussie be at this point. The mayor and CPD are starting to look like scorned lovers seeking revenge.
