WATCH: Jussie Smollett Appears Tense During a Heated Phone Call on His Hawaii Vacation, Telling a Friend ‘It’s Over, I Got Off’ After Having ‘Hoax’ Attack Charges Dropped - 04-16


The Empire actor was spotted pacing back and forth during the animated chat. He could be heard insisting: ‘I did not do any of this. The charges were dropped’. An onlooker said: ‘He was saying “Ryan, Ryan. You have to believe me”.’ Exclusive footage shows Jussie, 36, walking around a parking lot as his family dined nearby. He is vacationing with his two sisters, brother-in-law, and niece and nephew, and was all smiles during a day at the beach last week. Smollett was accused of staging an attack on himself on January 29. The case against him was suddenly and unexpectedly dropped last month.
