Jussie Smollett’s ‘Empire’ Scenes Cut

Jussie Smollett’s role on the hit TV show “Empire” has been drastically cut in the wake of allegations that he staged an assault against himself, according to a report Tuesday.

Smollett, 36, who plays gay singer-songwriter Jamal Lyon on the Fox show, was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the penultimate episode of season 5, which is currently being shot, production sources told TMZ.

However, five scenes and the musical number have been deleted.

As a result, Smollett is spending far less time on set and scriptwriters have been scrambling over to revise the current season’s scripts.

A grand jury will soon begin hearing evidence that could result in felony charges against Smollett, who could be charged with filing a false police report for allegedly paying two men he knew $3,500 to concoct the attack.
