Jussie Smollett is getting back to regular life even though he’s still fighting with the city of Chicago.
The former “Empire” actor went out for a regular old meal with his siblings during a recent trip to New York City.
Jussie’s sister, Jazz Smollett, posted pictures of their outing showing the controversial actor smiling and enjoying their time together.
The snap also included their brother, Jake.
Tagging them at Gelso & Grand, an Italian restaurant in Little Italy, Jazz captioned the picture, “Last week in #newyork wandering around #littleitaly with @therochellebrown And my little bros @jussiesmollett and @jakesmollett and stumbled upon this little gem!”
The siblings are super close.
Jussie, Jazz, Jake and their sister, actress Jurnee Smollett-Bell, even have a cook book together.
During Jussie’s trial, his brothers and sisters remained by his side and kept their united front.
It’s been a while since Jussie has been seen in good spirits.
He returned to social media in June, months after his alleged attack, but he hasn’t posting a single current photo of himself.
The fight isn’t over for Jussie, despite all charges being dropped against him over allegations he lied to police in faking an alleged hate crime against himself.
As The Blast reported, the “Empire” star was accused of staging the attack against him on January 29.
He claimed two men came after him and screamed racist and homophobic slurs at him. He also claimed bleach was thrown on him and a noose.
Jussie is still involved with a lawsuit against the city of Chicago for thousands of dollars spent investigating the alleged hoax.
