Malik Yoba Confirms Whether Or Not Jussie Smollett Is Gay

On the show, Jussie’s character Jamal is a multi-talented musician struggling with how to assert his sexuality to the world amid constant criticism of his lifestyle from his father Lucious Lyon, but recent comments Jussie made when asked about his sexuality in real life during an interview has some fans wondering if his art really does imitate his life.
When asked whether or not he’s gay in real life during a recent interview on the Sway in The Morning radio show, Jussie had this to say in response:

Hmmmm. However, while Jussie is seemingly opting to keep it in the closet, his fellow “Empire” cast member Malik Yoba gave a much more straight-forwad answer to the burning question of his talented friend’s real-life sexuality. Hit the flip to read what he had to say.
