RadioOnFire.com – According to recent reports, the Chicago Police Department rejected phone records provided by Jussie Smollett citing them as “insufficient to corroborate some of the information.” The claims coming from sources close to the police department say that Smollett hasn’t been cooperative with the authorities and their investigation. However, the Empire actor’s team has come forward and summarily denied the claims of being uncooperative.
“Jussie is the victim here, which has been stated by the Superintendent of Police. Jussie has voluntarily provided his phone records from within an hour of the attack and given multiple statements to police,” said one of Smollett’s reps to Deadline. “Chicago PD has repeatedly informed us that they find Jussie’s account of what happened that night consistent and credible. Superintendent Johnson has been clear from day one that Jussie is a victim. We are continuing to work closely with the Chicago PD and remain confident that they will find Jussie’s attackers and bring them to justice.”
Smollett’s went as far as to say the claims were unsubstantiated. “Chicago Police have not told us that they are rejecting any records, nor have they expressed concerns about the records to us. Therefore, we don’t feel compelled to be baited into responding to uncorroborated press reports.” Source: complex.com
