R17, that is one of the funny things about the news cycle shifting to the college scam. The brothers were clearly preparing to start a media blitz of their own. Their lawyer pretty much said that. Monday it would have been a get. I'm sure a lot of journalists would still be interested in speaking to them, but the interest probably dropped a lot.

I watched Empire last night. Jamal's storyline came to a succinct, if somewhat sad end, after breaking up with his man. The episode even concluded with Jamal singing at a piano. It even seemed like his character was addressing some of Jussie's real life issues! Too bad it wasn't Jussie's last episode. It would have been the perfect exit for his character.

I've wondered why Jussie, despite being 36, very handsome and successful, has never had a man claim him publicly. A relationship with him is probably nothing but confrontation, and kissing all those Smollett's asses, namely his brother who Im sure is a huge cock blocker. And waking up next to all that smug attitude. Gurl I cant.

R30, he's had a string of long term relationships, he's just been private about them because he was hoping it would help his career. His current (?) boyfriend was mentioned here in a previous thread. His name is Tawan Davis and he's the CEO of a real estate investment group. I know he dated a well-known choreographer for a while and a successful television director for a few years.

I know you guys are having fun dragging him, but there is no conceivable way he wouldn't have had his pick of eligible guys to date. Even now, he probably wouldn't have much trouble getting dick.

[quote]Why hasn't Tawan Davis spoken up in defense of Jussie?

Cause that's not his man gurl! If that was truly his n*gga he would standing right up there in court with him, like Bill Macy showed up for Felicity Huffman.

Tawan is probably just a FWB who lays pipe when requested and shows up to little events when he needs a date. I know Tawan don't have time to be dealing with that attitude.

And pretty boys like Jussie do NOT go out in subzero weather for food, ok? That's how I knew he was lying. If he had a man he would send him out there in the elements!

He's not going to prison, r38.

R40, that's more stable than 90% of gay male relationships. Tawan actually did post a few things in support of Jussie just before and just after the arrest. It's possible they broke up, but considering how private Jussie has been with his love life, it's just as likely that he just wants Tawan to remain low key.

Taraji P. Henson, wisely keeping her comment vague:

When asked directly by Fox 32 Chicago on Sunday about the troubled 36-year-old's scandal and his character Jamal Lyon being written off, Taraji stated: 'We're strong. I'm strong. And that's all I can say.'

Compare/contrast from her February statement:

"I wish what happened to my baby was just one big bad joke but it wasn't and we all feel his pain right now," Henson wrote in a post on Instagram. "@jussiesmollett is pure love to the bone AND THAT IS WHY SO MANY ARE FEELING HIS PAIN BECAUSE IT IS OUR PAIN!!! I tell you one thing HATE WILL NOT WIN!!!!

I see that Jussie's lawyers are keeping under the radar since the college scam shit went down. Or am I wrong? I haven't kept up on any of the news shows. Perhaps Geragos is still flapping his gums?

They are either keeping quiet hoping that this will give him a break when it's his turn. Or they are shitting themselves watching a bunch of rich white assholes in the crosshairs for a change.

Friendly reminder: Jussie has not yet been charged by the Feds. His team is likely (hopefully, though I hate this twat) watching to see how this mess unfolds to figure out what to do when the Fed charges re: this hoax come in.

It's true, r49. Jussie has gotten lucky with the college scam, not to mention the HBO documentary on Michael Jackson, taking away from his troubles.

I think Jussie, or at the very least, friends/reps of Jussie are on here and other boards "taking the temperature". r53 And a couple of threads ago it was apparent that someone from his crisis management team was. I have seen this term "relatively obscure message board", before which is either troll language or "rep-ese" The DL really isn't all that obscure, so not sure where you are going with this. No matter. All topics, no matter how hot, die down for a while, then flare back up again when there are new developments.

Well if his rep is reading this, tell the shows writers to have his character shoot himself in the head in the show. That's the only way his character could possibly bring ratings to this sinking ship of a show. And this is essentiallly what he did to his career, so it's profoundly fitting.

Go to sleep r83.

So according to this link "about 50" people were fired for accessing C-list Jussie's medical records with no cause (aka curious as fuck about this faker). I believe this fact was already posted, though there is more detail in the article. What I found interesting was this tidbit:

"In another famous case, the University of California, Los Angeles, Medical Center, where singer Britney Spears was hospitalized in early 2008, fired 13 employees and suspended six physicians for accessing her medical records without a valid reason."

Only 13?

by The usual suspect. Title credit: R568 Part 14. reply 84Last Tuesday at 5:06 PM

I find it very difficult to believe that the hate found here for him is solely based on his stupid stunt. Especially when most of you never heard of Jussie Smollett before January.

There are also one or two people who have been trolling these threads from day one of this saga, who just drop by to say how much they hate him and can't wait for him to be locked up. You add nothing to the actual conversation and you have become quite boring and tedious.

by The usual suspect. Title credit: R568 Part 14. reply 89Last Tuesday at 10:31 PM

Oh, please. Even on LSA, if you ever read the Empire threads, when an episode aired, you had posters lamenting "Oh, God, here comes Jamal singing another damn song." And they were right. His whiny singing voice became irritating as he doesn't have much range as a singer.

He's a decent actor but his singing can be grating.

by The usual suspect. Title credit: R568 Part 14. reply 90Last Tuesday at 10:51 PM

r90 you have a reasonable comment about Jussie based on your opinion of his acting and singing, and not just some mindless comment about why he's not locked under a jail yet.

by The usual suspect. Title credit: R568 Part 14. reply 91Last Tuesday at 11:17 PM

I'm really feeling bad for this guy, he must be a fragile mess. First, I'm surprised to find out he's in his thirties, I've always thought he was a young 20-something. (I've never watched the show.) I'm not understanding the intense desire of some that he go to jail. I think he should be fined, yes. Maybe he should also be required to give an unqualified apology plus hours of community service for this hoax.

by The usual suspect. Title credit: R568 Part 14. reply 92Last Wednesday at 5:00 AM

R92 The last two vids of him strutting down the walk like it was fucking West Side Story, and the fact he has plead "not guilty" speaks volumes about his entitlement (no apology coming in our lifetimes) The rest of what you mentioned speaks volumes about his arrested development. Bless you though for wanting to find the good in this shitbird.

by The usual suspect. Title credit: R568 Part 14. reply 93Last Wednesday at 5:12 AM

r87, for the life of me I can't imagine why you didn't understand what I wrote. I suggested that there may be people who hate Jussie because of his actions in staging the fake homophobic/racist attack--meaning they hate him on the merits of his actions.

I don't know how else to explain the obvious to you.

by The usual suspect. Title credit: R568 Part 14. reply 94Last Wednesday at 5:48 AM

R90, I think he's a way better singer than he is an actor. Taste in music and what someone may find attractive are all subjective, so it's not something I would argue with anyone over too much. I read lipstick alley sometimes and they have a tendency to drag everyone. Even Beyonce has her devoted crew of detractors. Your post reminded me of how Beth from The Walking Dead used to get blasted for her constant singing.

Regardless of his talent (or lack of it), when the show was at the height of it's popularity, I think it was generally agreed that he was the breakout star among the three sons. I've said this in previous threads, but I don't think he was trying to get a raise because he was unhappy with his salary. I think he realized the Empire ship was pretty much sunk and was more interested in trying to set up his post-Empire career. I agree with the poster who said it's a shame because he did have a lot going for him. He could have just stayed an unproblematic cutie who had a pretty remarkable career considering he was openly gay and black.

by The usual suspect. Title credit: R568 Part 14. reply 95Last Wednesday at 12:35 PM

His singing good, but as I've said his voice is not very unique and too similar to Michael Jackson. I like him better as an actor, but that's just me. He is very handsome and photogenic, not to mention he looks 10 years younger than he is.

R103, you seem to be on the side of desperate liars and their corrupt friends. Jussie did major damage to Kamala Harris, Corey Booker, and their anti-lynching bill. He obviously coordinated his hoax to help promote their political aspirations.

Keep in mind this is a person whose twitter page bears a quote to the effect that he is here to help save the world, and whose family refer to themselves as "joyful warriors." Self-aggrandizement much?

Sort of like Beto being born to be president. Millennials are special.

Beto is an Xer

R110, he WAS more than an unproblematic cutie. He was one of the most popular characters on a successful series. All of his co-stars loved him, almost no one who actually knows him or has worked with him has anything negative to say about him. He was great at networking, he had a ton of celebrity friends. He had connections. A lot of powerful behind the scenes people liked him. He had built up a positive reputation. A-list status might not have been in the cards, but he would have continued to have a successful career as an actor.

He was one of the most successful out, black actors in Hollywood right now. He had a heartthrob status among his fans. He looked far younger than his years. He was going to continue to work consistently. I get that he has turned a lot of people against him, but in terms of representation, I do consider it a loss.

Most of us do, which is why we’re calling for severe punishment. Plus, it was self-inflicted so didn’t have to happen.

Justice for Jessie, no prison time!

And how is that justice, r117? I really would like someone to offer a cogent and intelligent explanation--just once.

by The usual suspect. Title credit: R568 Part 14. reply 118Last Thursday at 5:04 PM

You make good points r115. The nice thing too was seeing two black men in a loving relationship on national television. (Of course, it seems that has ended in the last episode of Empire). One thing I will say about Jussie is that he has good chemistry with all his co-stars (Gabby), including guest ones (Mariah, Alicia Keys, Rumer Willis)

I don't know how much an impact Jussiegate is having on the show; it was sinking anyway. This may have just accelerated the decline.

R116, that doesn't make sense. Most of the posters who have posted that he deserves a severe sentence have also tried to argue that he's an untalented, unattractive, stupid, arrogant, high maintenance monster who barely had a career and can't maintain any personal relationships because he's such a mess. That is not in agreement with what I said at all. That's not how he was viewed before this incident at all. If your point is that the hoax itself equates to a loss, then that's a fair point, but it's not the point I was making.

Where'd you go, r117? Still hoping you can explain why "justice for jessie [sic]" - no prison time.

[quote]He’s still liked by a surprising number of people

Yes. The stupid ones. And there are a surprising number of them.

by The usual suspect. Title credit: R568 Part 14. reply 124a day ago

Wait, wait wait, just fucking wait a minute.

Some of you, like r115 & r116 are pissed because you think this guy somehow "represents" you, so his actions must be punished?

But if he didn't "represent" you, the actions of a narcissistic racist actor who tried to foment a minor race war wouldn't concern you?

Am I misreading your intentions?
