Share

Smollett has maintained that he is a victim and has denied all the allegations that he staged the incident.

Additionally, on Wednesday, CBS Chicago reported that dozens of hospital workers at Northwestern Memorial Hospital - where the Empire star was treated after allegedly getting attacked in a hate crime - may have been fired.

The influx of information that leaked to the media relating to Jussie Smollett's case has prompted officials to look into where their "vulnerabilities" lie.

On Jan. 29, Smollett arrived at Northwestern and claimed he was attacked by two men while walking home from a Subway around 2 a.m.

A rep for the Chicago PD told TMZ the Chief Of Detectives opened an investigation due to concerns surrounding the police department was leaking information to the public.

He had some scratches and bruising on his face and also claimed to have bruises on his ribs.

The workers were terminated for gaining access to the actor's medical chart when he visited the hospital's emergency room.

The Superintendent has batted away Smollett's claim that a $3,500 check for the brothers he allegedly paid to attack him was for personal training and said there was surveillance footage, physical evidence and testimony that proves it was a hoax that is yet to be presented.

One of the unnamed nurses who was sacked, claims to CBS Chicago that she never herself even accessed Smollett's chart. Smollett has been freed on bond, after his Twitter-gasp-worthy arrest and has pleaded not guilty.

She said that it all happened at the end of her shift last Tuesday, when she was called in and fired without being given a chance to say anything. She added that other employees might have been mistakenly fired for the same reason.

This nurse who was sacked plans to appeal her case with Northwestern Hospital.

She maintains that she was simply scrolling to look at another patient's name-not Smollett's, and that she may have been fired simply because of the scroll. In addition to representing Smollett, Geragos is also now working for Colin Kaepernick.
