Chicago PD has released new footage concerning the infamous kidnapping hoax of Jussie Smollett who was apart of the Empire television series.

Smollett is shown completely tied up in his Chicago apartment as uniformed officers enter his Chicago apartment upon his request (a 911 call). The responding officers ask him if he’d like the rope unfastened, to which he responds, “just wanted you all to see it” before they proceed any further.

Smollett explains to the officers that “his assailants” poured bleach all over his body to add insult to injury. At this point, the policemen inform Smollett that he’s being recorded. “I don’t want to be filmed,” Smollett answers.

It became plausible by authorities that Smollett was using his acting skills to try to fool the public. According to police, they concluded that he had hired two men, Abel and Ola Osundairo, to carry out the attack. Smollett continues to deny that the event was staged.
