Smollett had been arrested on disorderly conduct charges for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack and claiming he was the victim of a hate crime.
Smollett’s legal team said in a statement: “Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him.
“Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29.”
In the wake of his arrest in February, producers of Fox show Empire decided to remove the actor from the final two episodes of the latest season.
