Jussie Gets Charged With Filing False Report; New Job & Girlfriend

His openly gay brother, Jussie, currently on bail after surrendering himself, has been accused of filing a false report.

The story goes as Jussie - who stars in the hit FX drama Empire - reported to the police in Chicago after getting jumped by "racist" men in late January 2018. After a detailed investigation, Chicago PD learned that the masked men were black and paid to staged the attack -- a claim Jussie denies vehemently to this day.

Although Jocqui initially showed his support to his brother via Instagram post, he hasn't opted to chime in on the matter with the latest developments.

Perhaps, he has his hands full with his job as the manager of Sales Strategy and Analytics at Snowflake Computing, a position he has held since November of 2018.
