Former cultural icon Queen Latifah said in an interview with Yahoo! that she still believes “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett’s version of events, despite the fact that Chicago Police have charged him with felony disorderly conduct for fabricating a hate crime against himself.
“I — until somebody can show me some proof otherwise, I’m going with him, you know, because the guy I’ve seen has always been someone who cares about people, who cares about others, and who’s very kind, and who’s always been cool and sweet. And that’s just the guy I know. So, until I can see some definitive proof, which I haven’t seen yet, then, you know I’ve got to go with him until I see otherwise, you know,” she said.
Smollett was arrested after a weeks-long police investigation into an alleged hate crime.
He told police that two men attacked him yelling “this is MAGA country,” placed a rope around his neck, and poured bleach on him. The story unraveled when the two suspects, Nigerian brothers and cast members on “Empire” told police that Smollett paid them to commit the hoax.
The bond proffer in the Jussie Smollett case provides previously unreported details about the “Empire” actor’s hate crime hoax.
Prosecutors began by describing a threatening letter sent to Cinespace Chicago Film Studios, where “Empire” is filmed, addressed to Smollett. The actor reportedly sent this letter to himself.
The proffer says:
On Tuesday, January 22, 2019, Defendant Smollett received a written letter at the Cinespace Chicago Film Studios, which is the facility on the Southwest Side of Chicago where the Empire Television Show is filmed. This letter contained written threats directed toward defendant Smollett, and contained a then-unknown white powdery substance. The letter also contained cut out letters pieced together which stated “Smollett Jussie you will die black f—,” and the word MAGA was hand written on the envelope where the return address is typically located. This powdery substance has since been determined to be crushed ibuprofen tablets.
According to prosecutors, the letter also contained a drawing of a stick figure with a noose around its neck with a gun pointed at its head.
The proffer also describes in depth the relationship between Smollett and one of the Nigerian brothers whom he paid to carry out the “attack” against him. Ambimbola Osundairo, one of the brothers, goes by “Abel.” He appears to be closer to Smollett than Olabinjo, his brother.
“Additionally, text messages between Defendant Smollett and Abel revealed that Abel was a source of designer drugs for Defendant Smollett,” the proffer said.
The proffer describes Smollett’s plan in great detail – as relayed to investigators by Smollet himself.

Dorn, a 77-year old retired St. Louis police officer, was shot and murdered outside of Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry on Monday night, in a crime that was captured on Facebook live. He had been a friend of the businesses’ owner and arrived on scene as rioting overwhelmed Saint Louis to secure the premises.
The video released by the Saint Louis police department features seven different suspects. They’re all wearing some form of face masks- conveniently shielding their identity, perhaps on the grounds of the coronavirus epidemic. At least two of the persons of interest can be seen holding guns as they enter the pawn shop to engage in looting.
A funding appeal to raise money for Dorn’s funeral expenses has gathered donations from across the country, with many outraged at the hypocrisy of race rioters claiming that they’re protesting the death of a black man going on to murder another one.
As of Friday, the memorial fund has raised more than $300,000. Dorn’s wife is still an employee of the St. Louis police department.
Law enforcement continues to actively investigate the circumstances which led to Dorn’s death.
