*Well look at the fresh tea somebody just poured for us, so to speak. Actually, we’ve just learned via Love B. Scott that Jussie Smollett and writer-director Patrik-Ian Polk (“Noah’s Arc,” “Being Mary Jane,” “P-Valley”) were a Mr. and Mr. situation at one time. Yes, they were once MARRIED couple!
Sources told the loveBscott.com site during it’s recent podcast that the two wed in 2011 right after Polk cast Jussie in his 2010 movie ‘The Skinny’ — which even features a cameo from – you guesed it, Love B Scott — and they divorced in 2014.
Here’s more from the site itself:
As for how things ended, well, there were mumblings of the entire marriage being annulled — but our sources say the process was indeed a divorce.
The source adds that Jussie’s family was NOT happy with the union and aided in hiding the marriage from the public.
It wasn’t too hidden, though. ‘Empire’ director Lee Daniels questioned Jussie about the secret marriage as he signed on for the show.
Feel free to search for the marriage AND divorce certificates — they’re out there.
