Chicago police were called to the home of Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx after her husband called 911 to report she assaulted him.

Police were summoned to the south suburban home by Kelley Foxx who reported that Kim Foxx had battered him during a domestic incident at 10:09 p.m. Saturday, according to CWBChicago.

"While en route to the address, dispatch informed us the domestic was physical and there were no injuries 'yet,'" an officer wrote.

When police arrived at the residence, Kim and Kelley Foxx were standing on the front porch. Police separated the combatants to get their side of the story.

Kelley Foxx said Kim Foxx "got mad about something that was posted on Facebook that he did," an officer wrote.

Kim Foxx "became physical" when he refused to leave, according to the police report.

Kelley Foxx told police that his wife blocked his exit from a bathroom, grabbed his collar, and threw his video game controller when he tried to play a video game.

"He tried to turn on the TV and Kimberly snatched the controller out of his and threw the controller," the report continued.

Kim Foxx apparently overheard what her husband was telling the officer and yelled, "All that is true," an officer wrote.

Kelley Foxx said his wife slapped him on his left cheek, but officers did not observe any marks, prompting Kelley Foxx to say he "just wants to be left alone," according to the report.

"She can't come in my personal space and put her hands on me," police quoted Kelley as saying.

He allegedly told the officer "he wanted to make sure someone understands what is happening here," meaning that he's a victim of ongoing domestic violence.

"He added that he just wanted it to stop," the office wrote.

Kim and Kelley Foxx are pictured with their four daughters.

The couple's 19-year-old daughter told cops that she only heard a disagreement and did not see anything.

No arrests were made and the Kelleys chose to remain in the home Saturday night.

When an officer asked Kim Foxx if she felt safe in the home, she reportedly answered, "I mean, he's not crazy."

Cook County Jail

Jussie Smollett's first night in the Cook County Jail was "uneventful" according to jail officials.

The disgraced actor shouted "I'm not suicidal!" after Judge James Linn sentenced Smollett to 150 days in jail and ordered him to pay $120,106 in restitution for lying to Chicago police. He was also ordered to pay a $25,000 fine and to provide a sample of his DNA as a convicted felon.

The "Empire" actor wiped away a tear as he listened to his brother, Joel Smollett Jr., plead for leniency for him.

Smollett's sentencing hearing was held at the Leighton Criminal Court Building on Thursday, March 10, following his conviction on 5 of 6 counts of a class 4 felony in December.

The 39-year-old California native was booked into the Cook County Jail on Thursday night. His teary-eyed mugshot photo was released to the news media a few hours later.

The Cook County Jail was also home to R&B singer/songwriter R. Kelly, who is in a Brooklyn federal jail while awaiting sentencing for his racketeering conviction in New York last year.

Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx lashed out at the special prosecutor who indicted Smollett after Foxx dropped all charges against him in 2019.

In an op-ed for the Chicago Sun-Times, published on March 10, she wrote:

"In Smollett's case, the mob was relentless, organized and effective. A judge appointed a special prosecutor with an unlimited budget to reopen the investigation into a nonviolent Hollywood actor, a complete disregard for the discretion that prosecutors must have to be effective and independent.

"Smollett was indicted, tried and convicted by a kangaroo prosecution in a matter of months. Meanwhile, the families of more than 50 Black women murdered in Chicago over the last 20 years await justice."

She continued:

"What is most frustrating is that my cooperation in a process I knew was illegitimate sets a precedent that can be weaponized against progressive prosecutors determined to break the cycle of inevitable outcomes. Further, I worry it will serve as a deterrent to the next generation of prosecutors eager to fight for critical reforms.

Anyone interested in an equitable system of justice should be worried too."

A report on the Cook County State's Attorney's handling of the Jussie Smollett case found misconduct and "operational mistakes" by top prosecutor Kim Foxx.

The report written by Special Prosecutor Dan Webb was made public by a judge on Monday.

"I do believe that getting my report helps restore the public's confidence in our criminal justice system," Webb said. "That is what I was asked to do. I have done it and now I am glad the report is going to be released."

The report found that Foxx made "operational mistakes" when she initially dropped felony charges against Smollett.

Webb poured through emails, texts, phone records and television news interviews to determine whether Foxx used her office to grant special favors to Smollett.

The special prosecutor's report found misleading and false statements by Foxx, including stating that Smollett had no criminal background. He reportedly lied about a DUI and got 24 months of probation.

In an op-ed to the Chicago Tribune, Foxx claimed she didn't have enough evidence to secure a conviction against the disgraced actor. "The likelihood of securing a conviction was uncertain."

In a phone call to Smollett's sister on Feb. 13, 2019, Foxx allegedly said: "Your brother should be fine as long as he stays consistent."

Foxx, a Democrat, previously said she cut off communications with Smollett's sister.

Webb's report concluded his investigation "did not develop evidence that would support any criminal charges against State's Attorney Foxx or any individual working at the CCSAO."

A jury found Smollett guilty on 5 felony counts of disorderly conduct for lying to Chicago police about a fake hate crime in January 2019.

Judge James Linn set a post-trial hearing for Jan. 27, 2022. According to the NY Post, Smollett will likely receive less than a year in prison and 5 years probation upon his release.

Jussie Smollett arrived at a Chicago courthouse on Monday as jury selection gets underway on Day 1 of his MAGA hoax trial.

The nervous-looking actor arrived at the courtroom of Judge James Linn shortly before 9:30 a.m. with his friends and family members.

Smollett was one of the most celebrated LGBT+ stars who routinely rubbed elbows with Barack and Michelle Obama and other political elites before his fall from grace.

Police say the Empire actor staged a racist and homophobic attack on himself on a chilly night in Chicago in January 2019.

The disgraced actor is accused of lying to police and costing Chicago taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars. Police complained of lost resources while they hunted two white MAGA hat-wearing attackers who didn't exist.

Prosecutors say Smollett paid Nigerian brothers Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo $3,500 to carry out a fake racist attack on him.

Smollett allegedly staged the attack to wring more money out of Empire show producers. He also allegedly hoped to parlay press coverage about his attack to get more movie roles.

However, the details of the staged racist and homophobic attack were too bizarre to believe and his story unraveled after police reviewed surveillance videos from the night of the alleged attack.

Smollett, 39, was originally charged with 16 counts of lying to police but the charges were dropped by Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx.

After a public outcry, a special prosecutor charged Smollett with six counts of felony disorderly conduct in February 2020.

He faces a maximum of three years in prison for each count or 18 years in prison if convicted.

Smollett continues to maintain he is an innocent victim and not the mastermind behind the hoax homophobic attack.


Jussie Smollett's lawyer believes "politics" is to blame for the actor's indictment in Chicago on Tuesday.

The former 'Empire' star was indicted on charges of making false reports to the Chicago Police Department following a hate-crime hoax last year.

The 37-year-old disgraced actor is facing 6 new charges of disorderly conduct by special prosecutor Dan Webb, who was appointed to investigate why State Attorney Kim Foxx's initial 16-count felony indictment against Smollett was dropped.

Smollett's lawyer, Tina Glandian, released a statement criticizing the indictment on Tuesday, reported.

"After more than five months of investigation, the Office of the Special Prosecutor has not found any evidence of wrongdoing whatsoever related to the dismissal of the charges against Mr. Smollett," she said.

Glandian defended Kim Foxx's action, saying "the charges were appropriately dismissed the first time because they were not supported by the evidence."

She suggested that the new charges were timed to disrupt Foxx's reelection as Illinois state prosecutor.

"The attempt to re-prosecute Mr. Smollett one year later on the eve of the Cook County State's Attorney election is clearly all about politics, not justice," Glandian said.

Smollett is due back in court on February 24, according to local news channel Fox32.


Cook County's top prosecutor Kim Foxx called ‘Empire' star Jussie Smollett a "washed up celeb who lied to cops" in a text message she sent before dropping all charges against the actor in March.

The text message was released Tuesday by her office in response to an open records request by the Chicago Tribune, Fox News reports.

In text messages sent to her top assistant Joseph Magats on March 8, Foxx compared the Smollett case to her pending indictments against R&B singer R. Kelly, who is accused of aggravated sex abuse against four females, including 3 minors.

"Pedophile with 4 victims 10 counts. Washed up celeb who lied to cops, 16 (counts)," she wrote. "Just because we can charge something doesn’t mean we should."

"On a case eligible for deferred prosecution I think it's indicative of something we should be looking at generally," Foxx continued.

Her texts implied she was still very much involved in Smollett's case even though she recused herself in February.

Smollett, 33, was indicted by a grand jury on 16 counts of disorderly conduct for lying to cops about staging a hate crime with two Nigerian-American brothers in January.

The openly homosexual actor claimed 2 men assaulted him in a racist and homophobic attack outside his Chicago condo.

But investigators determined he staged the attack on himself to boost his celebrity profile on the Fox Television soap opera.

On March 3, Magats told Foxx that he gave her phone number to celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti who joined the case to represent the 2 Nigerian brothers.

" Michael Avenatti reached out. Apparently he's coming in to represent the Nigerian brothers in Smollett. I gave him your office number," Magats wrote.

Avenatti would eventually turn over a key piece of evidence - a sex tape - that Foxx used to secure indictments against Kelly, 52.

Avenatti was later hit with a 36-count federal indictment that included accusations that he stole $4 million from a paraplegic client in California.

The text messages sent between Foxx and Magats conflicted with statements made by Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson who claimed his office was not notified that the charges would be dropped against Smollett.

The texts show Foxx's office notified Johnson moments before the charges were dropped.

"Eddie just called. (He) needed to know how to answer questions from press," Foxx texted Magats.

Foxx told Magats that Johnson seemed "satisfied" with her explanation that Smollett had completed community service and turned over his $10,000 bond money to the city.

That same day Johnson and then-Mayor Rahm Emanuel held a tense news conference expressing their outrage at not being notified and blasting Foxx's decision as a "whitewash of justice."

Many observers at the time believed Johnson and Emanuel were grandstanding for the news cameras.
