Weeks after being attacked in Chicago, “Empire” star Jussie Smollett sat down for his first TV interview.
Smollett detailed his attack in an exclusive interview with “Good Morning America.” According to Jussie, he was on the phone with his manager when he was punched in the face by an attacker, and retaliated by punching back. He continued, “We started tussling… it was very icy. We ended up tussling by the stairs, fighting, fighting, fighting. There was a second person involved who was kicking me in my back — and then it just stopped.”
It wasn’t until the attackers ran off that Jussie noticed the “rope around my neck.” As for why he didn’t notice it before, Jussie explained, “It was so fast,” adding about the attack, “It felt like minutes but it was probably like 30 seconds.”
