Jussie Smollett

JUSSIE Smollett is famous for his portrayal of Jamal Lyon in the hit Fox series Empire. What did he make per episode and what is his net worth?

The star is at the centre of a police investigation after allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack due to concerns over his Empire salary, police said on Thursday. Smollett, who is black and openly gay, was arrested on Thursday and charged with lying to police about the alleged attack on January 29. Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson was visibly angry as he outlined the allegations.

Johnson alleged: “This stunt was orchestrated by Smollett because he was dissatisfied with this salary. He concocted a story about being attacked.

“We gave him the benefit of the doubt.”

Twentieth Century Fox Television, which airs Empire, said in a statement it understand the seriousness of the matter and respects the legal process.

The statement said: “We are evaluating the situation and we are considering our options.

“Jussie Smollett continues to be a consummate professional on set and as we have previously stated, he is not being written out of the show.”

How much did Jussie Smollett make per episode on Empire?
Huffington Post reported Smollett was paid $65,000 per episode on the most recent series of Empire.

An average season of Empire has 18 seasons.

When the series was first taking off, it was reported that Smollett made $20,000 per episode for his role as Jamal Lyon.

But as Empire is now into its fifth season, he is earned a lot more than his initial salary.

A whole season would bring him the sum of $1.17million.

His co-stars Terrance Howard and Taraji P. Henson were getting paid around $175,000 per episode.

Smollett’s salary was reportedly in line with Howard and Henson’s on-screen children, Trai Byers and Bryshere Y Gray.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, his net worth is $1 million.

He has appeared in episodes of Coach, The Mindy Project and Revenge and starred as Langston Hughes in the Thurgood Marshall biopic, Marshall.

Smollett has guest-hosted on Live! With Kelly in 2016 before Kelly Ripa found a permanent host in Ryan Seacrest.

In 1993 he was nominated for a Young Artists Award for Outstanding Young Ensemble Cast in a Motion picture for The Mighty Ducks.

He also served as executive producer for the 2015 short Sacret Heart and in 2017 he appeared in Alien: Covenant.
