This is the easier one. If he gets charged with mailing fake anthrax to the Empire set (and it seems the brothers may have implicated him) that's when he's looking at 10 years in federal prison.

I didn't know about the fake anthrax too :nono: I thought he just sent the fake death threat to himself and staged the beat down. The story has made the UK press too

He had crushed up Tylenol as a white powder inside the envelope to look like anthrax or ricin, which is why the FBI was on the case.



He got eviscerated by the police in the press conference. And they said the FBI believes he sent the letter for sure. He is fucked. He's looking at possibly 10-15 years in federal prison.

Thanks for the vid. So apparently he paid the two dudes by check...

I mean, he didn't even cover all the bases for his BS story. It's been found out he got 65K for each episode (18 episodes a season)so it's not like he was struggling financially. Incredibly foolish what he's done and incredibly insulting to folks who are genuinely victims of racist/homophobic hate crimes. :nono:

Jussie Smollett 'I Swear to God, I Didn't Do This'
Jussie Smollett Apologizes to 'Empire' Cast and Crew, Maintains Innocence
Sources on the "Empire" set tell us the cast and crew were waiting at least 30 minutes for Jussie to begin the scheduled scene. When he eventually showed his face he was very emotional, and surrounded by his family.

We're told he addressed everyone on set, saying ..."I’m sorry I’ve put you all though this and not answered any calls. I wanted to say I’m sorry and you know me i would never do this to any of you, you are my family. I swear to god i did not do this.”

https://chicago.suntimes.com/news/r-kel ... e-charges/ Story here is Kels had to spend the night in jail as he didn't have the $100,000 for bond. His bail has been set at $1m. His lawyer said something about "Double Jeopardy" regarding the VHS tape.

That's crazy since he was worth $150 million at one point. Surely he has some stuff to sell worth $100,000. Also you'd think he would stash some money away for bail and legal fees, since he had to know there was a good chance he'd be prosecuted again.

All of the family members Kelly gave money to when their phone rings with a number they suspect might be a Cook County Prison payphone on the caller ID:

Yea, Kels attorney said his finances are in a mess. I think he was going to tour internationally to get his money up, but with all the negativity around him no concert(s) would go ahead anyway due to that whole Mute R Kelly bandwagon.

Before his arrest I heard his tour was doing pretty well in Europe. There was something about him having to move to a larger venue due to demand in Germany. It wouldn't be the first time someone was accused of awful things and had a successful tour. People will separate the art from the artist. And in his case people may view it as their last chance to see him perform since he's going to need a miracle to get out of this one.

But part of his bail is having to give up his passport because of the rumors he was planning to move to Africa to escape the charges.

I'm sure he signed bad deals because he's illiterate so would have to trust his attorney or manager that the deal was what they said it was. It would be very easy to take advantage of that so maybe he was ganked out of his publishing by a shady contract he can't understand.
