Empire actor Jussie Smollet has another mess on his hands. MTO News has learned that the actor's ex-boyfriend recently threatened to leak a sex tape featuring the actor and a downlow rapper.
According to the ex-boyfriend, Jussie owes him money and if he didn't pay him by last night, he'd expose his secret relationship to the world. In anticipation, Jussie's ex-lover reached out to a popular IG blog and told them about the video. See the exchange below:
According to the disgruntled ex, Jussie is currently engaged in a "downlow" sexual relationship or secret gay affair with a seemingly straight rapper and their activities are all on tape.
Jussie began his career as a child actor in 1987 acting in films including The Mighty Ducks (1992) and Rob Reiner's North (1994). In 2015, Smollett portrayed musician Jamal Lyon in the Fox drama series Empire, a role that was hailed as groundbreaking for its positive depiction of a black gay man on television. Smollett has also appeared in Ridley Scott's science fiction film Alien: Covenant (2017) as Ricks and in Marshall (2017) as Langston Hughes.
Smollett was indicted in February 2019, for disorderly conduct for staging a fake hate crime assault; the charges were dropped the following month. In February 2020, he was indicted on six counts of making false police reports
