*Jussie Smollett and his sister Jurnee are reportedly shopping a movie centered around “a brother and sister who have been wrongly accused,” a source exclusively tells lovebscott.com. According to the site, Jussie has been approaching directors to work on the film.

As we previously reported, an Illinois judge has appointed a special prosecutor to look into why state prosecutors dropped charges against Smollett, who is accused of orchestrating a racist, homophobic hate crime against himself.

The “Empire” star is currently facing a $130,000 lawsuit from the City of Chicago, as officials are demanding reimbursement for the money spent investigating his alleged fake hate crime.

Page Six reports that Wendy, NeNe, and French Montana “burned their way” through Don Julio 1942 tequila. The news follows rumors that Williams is still struggling with her addiciton issues.

We previously reported, Wendy is teaming with Lifetime to produce a biopic that will cover the highs and lows of her life — including sex, cocaine, fat-shaming and allegedly being date raped by a high-profile celebrity, TMZ reported.

The biopic will hit televisions sometime in 2020.
