The actor is said to be in the Cook County Jail’s psychiatric ward due to a paperwork error: “I just want to make it clear that he is in no way in danger of harming himself and wants people to know that he is very stable and strong,” his brother, Jockey, said in a statement on Instagram. Very healthy and ready to take on the challenge that has been put against him.” “It is not true, it is a disgrace.”

However, prison workers said Smollett is only in this wing because it is the part of the prison where celebrities are placed for their protection: “Mr. Smollett is not being held in a psychiatric cell,” the sheriff said in a statement. . “Any allegation that he is being held in this way is false.” The sheriff said Smollett is given time outside his cell and can use the phone, watch television, and “interact with the staff.” Smollett claimed that he would be treated more severely for nonviolent crime than others because of the color of his skin, sources close to the actor told TMZ.
