FBI Investigating Threatening Letter Sent to Jussie Smollett Before Brutal Attack

The FBI has joined the investigation into the alleged racist, homophobic attack that left Empire star Jussie Smollett in the hospital.

Police are investigating Tuesday’s brutal attack in Chicago as a “possible” hate crime after Smollett told authorities he was beaten by two white men in ski masks who hurled racist and homophobic slurs at him. It appears the attackers also put a noose around the 35-year-old actor’s neck and poured an unknown substance, possibly bleach, on him, while yelling, “This is MAGA country.”

The FBI is involved because Smollett received a chilling letter in the mail that contained threatening language and a powdery substance that police believe was Tylenol.

The letter was sent to the Fox studio in Chicago on Jan. 22.

Smollett was treated and released from Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

The FBI has identified a suspect in the extortion attempt against actor Kevin Hart, TMZ reports

The suspect is accused of contacting the comedian and demanding a “multi-million dollar” sum to prevent the “sexual provocative” video that allegedly features the Hart from going public.

The video prompted Hart, 38, to admit to “a bad error of judgment” in an Instagram post in which he appeared to admit to cheating on his pregnant wife. Hart also said he was targeted by someone for “financial gain.”

The iPhone video shows a man believed to be Hart in a sexually provocative position with a woman at a club and later under the covers in a bedroom.

Former members of the Secret Service are protecting reality star Kim Kardashian after she was robbed in Paris, a source told TMZ. 

Kardashian isn’t playing around after she was tied up and gagged at her Paris residence.

Former members of the Secret Service will join her security team, and they will be armed. She also will be transported in an “armored” car.

TMZ also reports that she met with former CIA agents and special force members of the Israeli army.

Kardashian also is planning to hire security for her daughters, but it’s unclear whether former Secret Service agents will be part of that detail.

The FBI is investigating allegations that Brad Pitt was verbally and physically abusive with his children on a private jet last week.

The FBI is investigating because the alleged abuse occurred on a flight from France to the U.S.

“The FBI is continuing to gather facts and will evaluate whether an investigation at the federal level will be pursued,” FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller told press in a statement late on Thursday night, Business Insider reports. 

A TMZ report suggested Pitt was drunk during the flight and that his wife Angelina Jolie and their children were on board.

Jolie has filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.”

The FBI is investigating the hacking of actress and comedian Leslie Jones.

TMZ reports the FBI is trying to track down the person or people who hacked her iCloud and cell phone for photos and personal information. 

Nude photos and personal information was added to her website, causing a big embarassment for the star.

It’s unclear whether agents are investigating on the West Coast or East Coast because Jones lives in both.

Jones was a co-star on the new Ghostbusters movie and has been taunted by racists on Twitter.
