We were all left wondering how Empire was going to write off Jussie Smollett’s character, Jamal, following his arrest and charges for filing a false police report, which have all been dropped.
On Tuesday night’s premiere of season 6, it was revealed that Jamal Lyon took off to London!
In one scene, Gabourey Sidibe, who plays Becky, was having a convo with Taraji P. Henson’s character, Cookie, about what happened to Jamal.
Becky was in her jammies and told Cookie, "Jamal and I used to wear these to our sleepovers all the time. Cookie replied, No wonder that boy ran off to London. I thought he was running away from Lyon drama."
Lee Daniels, the show’s co-creator, has already announced that this is the final season of Empire, due to the recent Smollett controversy.
