Jussie Smollett Pleads Not Guilty On 16-Count Indictment

Published

Jussie Smollett

Jussie just pled not guilty to the 16-count indictment against him. He was advised he needs to be at every court date going forward, and is set to be back in court in mid-April.

In the meantime, he’ll be allowed to travel to L.A. and NY for meetings with his lawyers. He’s gotta notify the court 48 hours in advance before going to either location, and also needs to check back in within 24 hours when he returns to Chicago.

Jussie Smollett just showed up to court with the same confidence he had the other day — the big difference now … this appearance actually matters, ’cause he’s being arraigned.

The “Empire” star once again strutted his way into a Cook County courthouse Thursday with his back straight and his head held high … just like he did on Tuesday when he showed up for a procedural hearing he technically didn’t need to attend.

He’s expected to enter a plea one way or another at his arraignment.

As we reported … a grand jury handed down the whopping 16-count indictment last week nearly two weeks after Jussie was arrested and booked for allegedly filing a false police report. Jussie’s attorney, Mark Geragos, called the indictment “overkill.”

Regardless of how Jussie pleads … he may very well have more than his own fate in his hands. Folks working on “Empire” feel like the future of the show will very much be tied to how things shake out for him in court, and could possibly torpedo the series at large.

Offset Reveals Why He Crashed Cardi B’s Concert To Win Her Back After Split: I Put It ‘All On The Table’

Published

Offset

Offset explains why he went to such great lengths to get back together with Cardi B after their breakup. He reveals during the March 22 edition of ‘Ellen’ that he knew he had to step up ‘as a man’ and say ‘I’m wrong.’

Ellen DeGeneres, 61, grills Offset, 27, about his very public apology to wife Cardi B, 26, during her concert in Dec. 2018. Ellen asks Offset whether or not he regrets being so public in getting Cardi B back, especially because fans thought he only did so to get attention. For Offset, crashing Cardi’s concert and declaring his love for her was the only option. “I love my wife, so it’s serious, not a game to me,” Offset tells Ellen. “It’s like…we have schedules and we have shows and I just felt like If I gave a break between time…I just can’t give that break between time… I step to it as a man and say I’m wrong. You don’t have to take me back, but I just want to let you know I love you and I care. I’m putting it all on the table.”

Offset notes that his public display of affection in Dec. 2018 wasn’t his first. “I asked her to marry me in Philadelphia [in 2017] at the radio show in front of 60,000 people, and when I did that, they were like… why he’s doing that? And it’s just because I’m not hiding my affection,” he continues. “It’s me being vulnerable. It kind of bit me with the response of people, but that’s why a man doesn’t try to be vulnerable. There’s something wrong either way.”

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper announced on Instagram in early Dec. 2018 that she and Offset had split, just months after welcoming their first child together, Kulture, now 8 months. At the time, she said that they “grew out of love” and “things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time.” Cardi had also been facing rumors for months that Offset had been unfaithful to her. At the Rolling Loud festival, the Migos rapper rolled out three boxes that spelled out “Take Me Back Cardi” in flowers. Offset then said to Cardi, “In front of the world, I love you.” Cardi didn’t immediately take Offset back after his very public declaration of love. Offset later tweeted his reasoning for crashing Cardi’s concert. “All of my wrongs have been made public, I figure it’s only right that my apologies are made public too,” he wrote. Offset and Cardi B officially got back together in Jan. 2019.
