Jussie Smollett has finally turned his phone records into the Chicago Police Department — 13 days after the actor revealed that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack. According to The New York Post, a spokesperson for the Empire star send in an email, “Phone records from Jussie’s manager were sent to police on Feb. 5 and Jussie’s records were sent over this morning. Both were sent to Chief of Staff to the Superintendent of Police Robert Boik, who confirmed receipt.”
The spokesperson continued, “They have Jussie’s records from within an hour of the incident. The police confirmed receipt of the records at 2:28 p.m. EST.”
Cops requested Smollett’s phone records to corroborate a call he said he had with his manager Brandon Z. Moore during the attack. Both men said that Smollett was called a “n*gger” and a “f*ggot” during the attack and both said they heard the words “MAGA Country.” Cops said that Smollett told them that he couldn’t be without his phone for several hours.
Chicago police spokesman Anthony Gugliemi told the publication, “We have no reason to doubt the statements, but for a criminal investigation, we need to independently confirm the phone records.”
