Chicago suing Jussie Smollett for refusing to reimburse cost of probe into his alleged assault

Jussie Smollett will be sued by the City of Chicago after refusing to reimburse the cost of investigating an alleged assault on him in the city.
 
Prosecutors say a homophobic and racist attack was staged to boost the actor's career, but Smollett has always maintained his innocence.
 
The 36 year-old was given seven days to pay $130,000 to cover the investigation's cost.
 
The deadline passed on Thursday and now a civil complaint will be filed.
 
Charges against the actor in relation to him falsifying a police report on the alleged assault were dropped last week.
