As of now, it seems that Jussie Smollet still has a job. “Empire” creator Lee Daniels wouldn’t give a reporter a definitive answer about Jussie’s future on his hit show.

“That’s a conversation we’re having right now,”
Seems like it should be a short conversation but it is Hollyweird so anything goes.
