Jussie Smollett Charged With Filing False Police Report
Empire” actor Jussie Smollett has been charged with filing a false police report, the Chicago police said Wednesday.

“Detectives will make contact with his legal team to negotiate a reasonable surrender for his arrest,” police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said on Twitter.

Police said earlier that they were presenting evidence to a grand jury. Smollett could face one to three years in prison if convicted of the felony charge, though he could also be sentenced to probation.

Smollett told police on Jan. 29 that he had been attacked by two men, who poured bleach on him, put a rope around his neck, and used racial and homophobic slurs. Police scoured surveillance cameras in the area, and were unable to find images of the attack. They were able to track down two brothers, Abel and Ola Osundairo, who were in the vicinity of the event.

The brothers were arrested last week and questioned for two days.

How Mandy Moore Rebounded in Life and Love From a Marriage That Could Have Crushed Her

How Mandy Moore Rebounded in Life and Love From a Marriage That Could Have Crushed Her
When Mandy Moore summited Mount Kilimanjaro last year, with then-fiancé Taylor Goldsmith by her side, it was more than a feat of physical endurance. The singer and actress had also proverbially reached the mountaintop after quite the uphill climb, with no guarantee that happiness would be waiting for her at the end. But though the journey ultimately proved worth it, whatever was waiting for her was going to be better than what she was putting behind her. "It's no coincidence to me that once I did that hard work, life opened up in a way that I never could have expected," Moore told Bustle in November. "Once I did that, it was like, the sun came back...

As one of the cutest celebrity couples by far, the former president and first lady are regularly trading sweet messages on social media and giving each other loving shout-outs. That's why it's no surprise (but still absurdly cute) that Barack referenced Michelle as soon as he started his remarks at a leadership forum in Oakland, CA, on Feb. 19.

Barack and NBA player Steph Curry teamed up for an event marking the fifth anniversary of the My Brother's Keeper Alliance, which was created to mentor young men of color. Barack introduced himself not as the 44th president or by his accomplishments, but as "Michelle's husband." He proceeded to call Steph "Ayesha's husband." Aw!

During his remarks on Tuesday, Barack encouraged young men to see past the culture of toxic masculinity that's so prevalent today. "If you are
