Lee Daniels Noncommittal on Jussie Smollett's 'Empire' Future

By TheBlast Staff

"Empire" creator Lee Daniels could have proclaimed once and for all whether Jussie Smollett will continue on the show but he punted on the question.

Daniels was out in New York City on Tuesday morning when a photog asked him point blank: Will Jussie be on the next season of "Empire"?

"That's a conversation we're having right now," Daniels said ... which is neither a yes or a no.

The photog also asked Daniels if he felt "scammed" by the alleged hoax, giving him an opportunity to defend Smollett. But instead, Daniels replied, "There are two judges: God and that man in the robe. So I can't judge."

Daniels had been quick to defend Smollett when the news of his alleged attack first broke.
