Madame Noire - 02-23


After turning himself into Chicago police, Jussie Smollett disclosed to the authorities that he has been battling a drug addiction. According to TMZ, after the Empire star surrendered to police Thursday (Feb. 21), he confessed that he has an addiction to ecstasy and that he has never sought help for it. Based on text messages recovered by police, Smollett had been buying drugs from Abel Osundario, one of the brothers that participated in the staged Jan. 29th attack in Chicago, since 2018. This can play a role in his case and possibly get his sentence reduced.
