According to the city of Chicago, Jussie Smollett is refusing to pay more$130,000 in reimbursement costs for the investigation into his staged racist, anti-gay hate crime attack.
The city’s law department said they are drafting a lawsuit and suing the Empire actor in Cook County civil court.
The city “will file the suit in the near future”.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s law chief sent Smollett a letter last month demanding the actor pay $130,106.15 within seven days.
Jussie got off easy with the $130,000 investigation bill.
Now a lawsuit will lead to a drawn out legal dispute in a civil court which means we're a long ways away from this news story being over.
Smollett is a horrible person.
