Empire Filming Near Jussie Smollett Crime Scene


Back in April Fox network execs confirmed reports that actor Jussie Smollett would not be part of the final season of 'Empire' after he was charged with filing a false police report for staging a racially charged hate crime in Chicago [click here if you missed that].

This week the Empire production crew were spotted filming near the scene of the alleged crime...

According to reports the Empire production team were escorted by local authorities for the early Monday morning shoot just one block away from the location Jussie Smollett claimed he was attacked. It is not known if the hate crime hoax will be incorporated into the storyline.

Meanwhile Jussie's character, Jamal Lyon, will be explained away by taking an extended honeymoon following his big wedding last season.

Fun Fact: Empire was canceled just months after Jussie was charged [click here if you missed that].
