Smollett was recently accused of paying two men to stage an attack against him. According to TMZ, the claims have prompted ‘Empire’ producers to drastically cut his upcoming appearances on the show. TMZ’s sources say that 5 of his scenes, as well as the musical performance, have been dropped. In the second to last episode, which is currently being filmed, Smollett was supposed to have 9 scenes and a musical number. The script has reportedly undergone numerous revisions.
Smollett’s assault case will be heard by a Grand Jury. If the actor is found guilty of presenting a false police report, he would face a felony indictment.
