Jussie Smollett’s Phone Records Rejected By Police
Earlier today we reported that Jussie Smollett finally turned in his phone records to police from his horrific attack, however, police state that they are not sufficient.
TMZ reports that Law enforcement sources reveal that Jussie turned in records that were actually from two weeks after his alleged attack.
They add that the PDF is subject to manipulation, meaning numbers can be added or deleted, although police clarify that there’s no evidence they were in fact tampered with.
A rep for Jussie told TMZ, “Jussie is the victim here, which has been slated by the Superintendent of Police. Jussie has voluntarily provided his phone records from within an hour of the attack and given multiple statements to police. Chicago PD has repeatedly informed us that they find Jussie’s account of what happened that night consistent and credible.”
“Superintendent Johnson has been clear from day one that Jussie is a victim. We are continuing to work closely with the Chicago PD and remain confident that they will find Jussie’s attackers and bring them to justice.”
As we reported, Jussie claimed that he called his manager during the attack and the manager says he heard the racial and homophobic slurs. Therefore, Chicago police wants the phone records to prove that a call was made. They initially requested the records two weeks ago.
