Reps close to Jussie Smollett wanted to come forth and clarify some of the rumors going around surrounding the attack on Empire star Jussie Smollett this week in Chicago.
Jussie's people want to let that contrary to reports, Jussie is turning over his phone records to police for calls prior to the attack.
The source also wanted to clarify the reports that the assailants were wearing "MAGA" hats and instead he said they screamed, "MAGA Country."
Finally, the reports of him having a noose around his neck at the hospital after the alleged attack and that also isn't true. Smollett did have the noose around his neck after the incident when cops arrived at his building only to "preserve the evidence."
This is what TMZ reported:
" The sources want to clear up 2 other points. First, there are reports that Jussie told cops his assailants were wearing MAGA hats. The sources underscore what TMZ first reported ... that Jussie never said the men were wearing the hats. Rather, they screamed "MAGA country."
And the last point ... there are reports that Jussie had the rope long after the incident when he was being treated at the hospital. We're told that is not the case. He did have the rope around his neck when cops arrived at his building 42 minutes after the incident. The sources say he kept it there to "preserve the evidence."
