Empire star Jussie Smollett and former pro-football player Michael Sam have been seen together quite a few times lately. TMZ caught up with Smollett to get to the bottom of the rumors.
When asked about Michael – who just broke up with his fiancé Vito Cammisano – Jussie replied, “That’s the homie right there,” squashing all thoughts of a budding romance.
The “Keep Your Money” crooner also responded to 50 Cent’s recent critiques of his FOX show, claiming it’s become “extra gay.” Jussie – who came out as gay last spring – took the high road, giving a nod to 50’s hit Starz show, Power, saying he watched the last season right along with everybody else.
Empire has just taken a ratings dip for the first time since the show premiered, but being as it was only the second episode in the season, there’s still room for improvement.
