According to TMZ, an internal investigation has been sparked at the Chicago Police Department over leaked information involving the Jussie Smollett case. A spokesperson stated, "When there are allegations of information being leaked, an internal investigation has been opened and we are also looking at our vulnerabilities".
Jussie Smollett remains a sore spot for the city of Chicago, following the termination of dozens of Northwestern Memorial Hospital employees who are accused of having gained unauthorized access to the actor's medical records during his treatment at the hospital.
Sources said those workers have been terminated after gaining access to the "Empire" actor's medical chart.
Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson may have also gone too far when he said Jussie paid the brothers $3,500 to stage the attack.
The day Smollett was at the hospital, his arrival and the alleged attack were all over the news, the worker said.
Smollett was admitted to Northwestern on January 29, and at the time claimed he was attacked by two assailants who yelled racial and homophobic slurs at him.
Smollett was arrested on February 21 after being charged with felony disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report in which he claimed he was the victim of a hate crime. "The guy I've seen has always been someone who cares about people, who cares about others, and who's very kind and who's always been cool and sweet", Latifah, 48, said on Yahoo News' Through Her Eyes. The actor was released after posting 10 percent of his $100,000 bond.
Smollett's claims had drawn so much sympathy from celebrities and the internet-with Smollett even sitting down for an interview with ABC's Robin Roberts to retell his alleged attack story...
According to the Chicago Police Department, Smollett paid Abimbola "Abel" and Olabinjo "Ola" Osundairo by check for a "phony attack" in order to take "advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career".
She maintains that she was simply scrolling to look at another patient's name-not Smollett's, and that she may have been fired simply because of the scroll.
