Jussie Smollett is being sued by the City of Chicago, after refusing to pay $130,000 in relation to allegations that he staged a hate crime on himself.

The ‘Empire’ actor was told last month he wouldn’t be charged over allegations he orchestrated a racist and homophobic attack on himself in January, but was met with more difficulties days later when the City of Chicago demanded he hand over the whopping sum to compensate for the overtime pay for police who investigated his case.

And after he refused to pay, the City has decided to file a lawsuit against him, which could see him face a trial for allegedly staging the attack.

According to TMZ, the City could ask for more than half a million dollars in payment from the lawsuit, which they are claiming will go toward helping recover the costs of investigating the case.

Meanwhile, Jussie’s attorney Marc Geragos said he won’t be paying the city a penny, because he maintains his innocence in the alleged hate attack.

Marc said: “Mr. Smollett will not be intimidated into paying the demanded sum. Mr. Smollett vehemently denies making any false statements.”
