(AllHipHop News) People are still praying this news of Jussie Smollett staging his own attack isn’t real, but it looks like it is.
The "Empire" actor was arrested earlier this week for making up the incident and is now facing probation or up to three years in prison.
Smollett was also in talks to join a project involving LGBTQ Charities with an organization called American Pillow Partners, but they have since changed their mind.
Oleg Lee, also known as That PIllow Guy, was speaking with Jussie about donating pillows with his face on them to raise funds and awareness for LGBTQ communities.
Lee is known for putting famous celebs on pillows, such as DJ Khaled, Howie Mandel, and more.
Oleg Lee aka That Pillow Guy, founder of American Pillow Partners, told The Blast he was in conversations with the “Empire” star to donate pillows with his image on them to raise funds and awareness for LGTBQ charities that Smollett supported.
Lee said, “I am currently looking for a new celebrity face to partner with to raise money for LBGTQ causes. If the allegations are true, I hope Jussie gets the help and support he needs. I was looking forward to working with him.”
Jussie Smollett was released on bail after paying $100,000.
