Smollett on Why He Won’t Give Cops His Phone: ‘I Have Private Pictures and Videos’

‘I have private pictures and videos and numbers’

EXCERPT:

SOMLLETT: “They wanted me to give my phone to the tech for three to four hours. I’m sorry, but I’m not going to do that.”
ROBERTS: “Why?”
SMOLLETT: “Because I have private pictures and videos and numbers; my partner’s number, my family’s number, my cast mates’ numbers, my private email, my private song, my private voice memos. I don’t know what that’s going to be to hand over my phone for — and honestly by then inaccurate false statements had already been put out there.”
