Taraji P. Henson Reveals What She Told Jussie Smollett After He Was Attacked

Taraji P. Henson wears a colorful skirt while leaving NBC Studios following an appearance on The Today Show on Monday morning (February 4) in New York City.

The Empire actress was on the show to promote her new film What Men Want, in theaters this weekend. Taraji later went to SiriusXM Studios for another interview.

On Today, Taraji opened up about what she told her co-star Jussie Smollett after he was attacked in Chicago last week.

“I just told him to walk in his truth, just stay the Jussie that everybody loves,” she said. “And you saw the outpour of love that he had, so he has touched a lot of people, in his career. So, I just told him just walk in your truth, baby, no one can take that from you.”

FYI: Taraji is wearing Mother denim and Adeam boots at SiriusXM.

    If he walked in the Truth he wouldn’t have lied and made up this fictitious story.

    That he’s full of shit. When a “victim” stops corroborating with police even to allow them to check their phone to get the exact time of the ” attack” it ani’t cause their telling the truth.

    If was anywhere else besides a corrupt run city he would be charged with reporting a false crime. As if the cops don’t anything better to do in Chicago, what were 600 murders last year of mostly blacks.
