'I believe my brother': Jurnee Smollett stands by Jussie, says scandal is hard on family


Jurnee Smollett made her first public statement on standing by her brother Jussie Smollett after he was accused of falsely reporting a hate crime.

"It's been fucking painful," she said, "one of the most painful things my family's ever experienced — to love someone as much as we love my brother, and to watch someone who you love that much go through something like this, that is so public, has been devastating. I was already in a very dark space for a number of reasons, and I've tried to not let it make me pessimistic. But everyone who knows me knows that I love my brother and I believe my brother."
