All charges have been dropped again Empire actor Jussie Smollett, just three weeks after he was indicted on 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct.

Smollett was accused of staging his own attack in Chicago back in January. Since then, the 36 year old queer actor was fired from his job on Empire and many considered his career to be over.

Tina Glandian and Patricia Brown Holmes, Smollett’s attorneys, released a statement announcing the results of an emergency hearing Tuesday morning.

The statement says Jussie was “hurt by these unfair and unwarranted actions.”
