Is Jussie Smollet - Jamal leaving Empire? That's what he has his fans wondering after a tweet he sent out following the show's explosive episode Wednesday night. Smollett's character, Jamal Lyon, has played a central role in the hit show's plot from the beginning of season 1 and propelled him to superstardom in a short period of time as one of the many actors to emerge as a fan-favorite.
However, his latest Twitter commentary appears to hint at his departure from the series. As shocking as it may seem. Internet's going crazy about this. True Story!
Terrence Howard and Taraji Henson are the stars of the show and only both of them are going to be paid huge sums. But the rest, aren't going to make much from the show.
Jamal wasn't asking for way too much money – just a genuine raise. But the people at FOX refused saying there was no money left in the budget. Lame reason!
He now will be trying to venture on to new opportunities. Good luck, Jamal.
