Smollett kept a low profile in a black shirt and black hat, but sources close to the meeting tell us there were "laughs" between the two and everyone had a "good time."

Janet and Jussie actually have some history, as the singer was one of the few artists who stood up and publicly supported the actor amid the alleged Chicago attack hoax.


Shortly after the news broke regarding Smollett's incident in Chicago, on January 29, Janet posted a photo of the two of them together and wrote, "sending u my love."

Even during the public firestorm Smollett found himself in, Jackson was reportedly worried about her friend, and continued to show support.


Smollett, who is also a singer, showed love back to Jackson in February 2018 when he tweeted out, “Happy Janet Jackson Appreciation Day” while declaring her the “the greatest living entertainer.”

As we reported, Smollett's battle in Chicago is not over yet, as he has declared an intention to the sue the city amid battling the lawsuit they have already filed to try and get back the costs spent investigating his alleged hoax.

The two sides have been unable to agree on a settlement, but Smollett has not officially pulled the trigger on his own lawsuit.
