The Chicago Police Department is now under investigation in relation to the Jussie Smollett attack.

CBS Chicago reports that one of the nurses says it was a misunderstanding, as she never reviewed Smollett's chart; however she was sacked last week. Queen Latifah defended Smollett after he was arrested for allegedly staging his own attack.

The Chicago Police Department claimed Nigerian-American brothers Ola and Abel Osundairo told them the attack was orchestrated by the "Empire" actor and that they were paid $3,500.

Smollett went to Northwestern Memorial Hospital on January 29 for treatment after what he claimed was an assault perpetrated by two men spewing hateful comments and placing a rope around his neck.

According to CBS' reports, the nurse was sacked last week, and the nurse says that many other nurses and staffers who were fired, were probably for the same reason she was sacked.

The nurse, whose identity was not revealed, said she never accessed Smollett's chart.

Oscars 2019: Olivia Colman and Green Book spring surprise wins
Shirley", screenwriter Nick Vallelonga told reporters on Sunday about the criticism. 25 years and you've been my best supporter. Colman walked away with The Favourite's only Oscar of the evening in what was a stunning upset overfrontrunner Glenn Close .

Smollett had gotten into hot water back on January 29, when he'd been rushed to Northwestern Hospital for treatment of wounds. "She's appealing and believes other [sic] may have been fired for simply scrolling past the name as well". She says she wasn't asked any questions and never had a chance to offer an explanation.

Following police accusations that Smollett had lied, he was charged with filing a false police report. TMZ was first to report the news. The brothers also reportedly told the Grand Jury they were paid for the gym sessions - NOT for the "attack".

When Smollett wrote the alleged check for $3500 days before the "attack", the memo line allegedly read, "5 weeks training nutrition plan".

That examination of vulnerabilities comes as the $100,000 bailed out Smollett is expected back in court later this month in a matter that could see him behind bars for up to three years if found guilty.

While the odds are seemingly stacked against Smollett, Latifah isn't the only star who has rallied their support for the actor.
