Michael Jackson accusers detail road to 'Leaving Neverland'

Feb 21, 2019

PARK CITY, Utah — Wade Robson and James Safechuck didn't know what to think when the lights went up after the first public screening of "Leaving Neverland" late last month at the Sundance Film Festival. In the 236-minute documentary that will air in two parts on HBO and Britain's Channel 4 in March, both describe, in harrowing detail, how they say Michael Jackson sexually abused them as boys. It was the second time they'd seen it and the first with an audience. At intermission director Dan Reed even wondered whether or not they were going to be able to make...

'Empire' actor goes from victim to accused felon in 3 weeks

Feb 21, 2019

CHICAGO — The whispers about "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett started with reports that he had not fully cooperated with police after telling authorities he was attacked in Chicago by two men who hurled racist, anti-gay slurs and looped a rope around his neck. Then detectives in a city bristling with surveillance cameras could not find video of the beating. Later, two brothers were taken into custody for questioning but were released after two days, with police saying they were no longer suspects. Following three weeks of mounting suspicions, Smollett was charged Wednesday with making a false police report, a charge...

Ego, publicity at stake when stars and TV critics meet

Feb 21, 2019

PASADENA, Calif. — Jerrod Carmichael, lamenting what he called the "terrible" state of TV comedy, asked his audience if they'd seen some of it. Staring back at the comedian was a hotel ballroom filled with journalists whose job it is to cover television. "I think they see all of it," helpfully offered Ramy Youssef, his fellow producer and star of their new Hulu sitcom. "Poor y'all," Carmichael said, a sympathetic coda to a semiannual event in which broadcast networks, cable channels and streaming platforms parade the shows and stars they hope will get attention from the 250 members of the...

Brothers in Smollett case are bodybuilders, aspiring actors

Feb 21, 2019

CHICAGO — An attorney representing the brothers at the center of an investigation into the attack reported by Jussie Smollett said Wednesday that her clients "manned up" and testified in front of a grand jury, before prosecutors charged the "Empire" actor with filing a false police report. Gloria Schmidt spoke to reporters outside a Chicago courthouse where the brothers met with the grand jury, which was collecting evidence in the case. Without providing details, she said the two men accepted money from Smollett and wanted to come clean. She said they weren't motivated by any promises from prosecutors. "There was...

'Empire' actor charged with making false police report

Feb 21, 2019

CHICAGO — "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett was charged Wednesday with making a false police report when he said he was attacked in downtown Chicago by two men who hurled racist and anti-gay slurs and looped a rope around his neck, police said. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said prosecutors charged Smollett with felony disorderly conduct, an offense that could bring one to three years in prison and force the actor to pay for the cost of the investigation into his report of a Jan. 29 beating. Authorities were trying to get in touch with Smollett's attorneys to "negotiate a reasonable surrender,"...
