Queen Latifah stands by Jussie Smollett after alleged hoax | VIDEO

Musician and actress Queen Latifah said in a new interview that she still supports indicted felon Jussie Smollett because she hasn’t seen “definitive proof” that he staged an attack against himself, as Chicago police now believe.

"The guy I've seen has always been someone who cares about people, who cares about others, and who's very kind and who's always been cool and sweet,"

Latifah said on Yahoo News' "Through Her Eyes" show. The future real estate mogul added that until "definitive proof" appears, then "I gotta go with him until I see otherwise." Both Latifah and Smollett are part of director Lee Daniels' hit series creations, Star and Empire, respectively.
