'It's so painful my soul is cracked': Empire creator Lee Daniels reveals Jussie Smollett may not return to the show due to his lawsuit with the city of Chicago as he confirms that the Fox show has been renewed for season six

Lee Daniels begrudgingly commented on the ongoing Jussie Smollett situation during an appearance on Good Day New York Wednesday morning.

The Empire creator was on the morning show to promote the new play he is producing, Ain’t No Mo’, when he was asked about Smollett.

'It's so painful that our souls are cracked,' said Daniels.

'It's just too painful to talk about.' Then, after a bit of poking and prodding, he revealed that Smollett's future on Empire is very much up in the air.

At the same time, Daniels confirmed that Empire has been renewed for a sixth season at Fox.
