Jussie Smollett’s ‘Empire’ Scenes Cut Amid Attack Controversy


Scenes featuring Jussie Smollett on the hit FOX drama, “Empire,” have reportedly been “drastically” cut amid the controversy surrounding his attack.

Smollett, who stars on the series as “Jamal Lyon,” was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the second-to-last episode of Season 5, but five of the nine scenes, as well as the performance, have been cut.

As you can imagine, Jussie has cut back his work hours and the “Empire” writers have been scrambling to revise the script to focus on the ensemble cast.

Danny Strong, co-creator of “Empire” took to social media to shut down rumors of Jussie being completely written off of the show.


The Curious Case of Jussie Smollett is still developing…
