Here we go.... is Jussie Smollett blaming "a drug problem" for his actions?

DISGRACED actor Jussie Smollett told officers he has a drug problem as they arrested him for allegedly staging a "racist and homophobic" street attack to boost his career, according to US reports.

Cops later said the Empire actor bought ecstasy from an alleged accomplice suspected of pretending to be an attacker in the hoax.
