Taraji P. Henson believes the "truth has finally been set free" after all charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped.
The 48-year-old actress believes the "truth has finally been set free" after prosecutors decided not to go ahead with the 16 counts of disorderly conduct they had charged her 'Empire' co-star with following allegations he staged a racist and homophobic attack on himself in January.
She told USA Today newspaper: "I'm happy that the truth has finally been set free, because I knew it all along. We're all happy for him, and thank God the truth prevailed."
And Taraji insisted she would have always stood by her on-screen son.
She added: "I'm not going to jump on clickbait just because someone says something derogatory about a person I know and love. I'm not easily swayed like that. Those little clickbait (reports) weren't enough to deter me from his immaculate track record. I know the type of activism this young man does in his community, I know that he's a giver - he's not an attention-seeker.
