The City of Chicago on Thursday filed a lawsuit against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett as he enjoys some vacation time in Hawaii.
Chicago said in court that Smollett owes more than $130,000 to compensate the city for the cost of police overtime as authorities investigated an incident he reported, according to the suit’s complaint, which was published in full by the Chicago Sun-Times.
“The City is entitled to recovery of the costs of necessary services provided by the City in order to provide services in investigating and responding to Defendant’s violations of the [Municipal Code of Chicago],” the complaint states.
Smollett was all smiles during a day at the beach in Hawaii as he enjoyed some down time with his family while the legal fallout from his sensational case raged on in Chicago.
The 36-year-old Empire actor was pictured laughing as he ate , talked to his sisters and unloaded a car with children’s bags and towels for a fun-filled day out.
They were spotted at the Kaloko-Honokōhau National Historical Park in Kailua on the Big Island.
