A rep for the Chicago PD told TMZ the Chief Of Detectives opened an investigation due to concerns surrounding the police department was leaking information to the public.

One nurse was reportedly axed but claimed it was a misunderstanding, and said she never accessed Smollett's chart.

The day Smollett was at the hospital, his arrival and the alleged attack were all over the news, the worker said.

Guglielmi said it would be hard to identify the sources based on the number of people outside the department who may have had access to case details throughout the investigation: evidence technicians from the State Police; prosecutors; the federal law enforcement agencies; even staff in the court clerk's office who processed warrants.

On Jan. 29, while walking to a subway, Smollett claimed two men yelled racial and homophobic slurs at him, investigators told The Hollywood Reporter.

She said that it all happened at the end of her shift last Tuesday, when she was called in and fired without being given a chance to say anything.

Kelly broke his silence about the allegations of sexual abuse he faces in a heated interview with CBS journalist Gayle King . He says he was indicted the next day but couldn't' access his money because the account needed a few days to clear.

According to one nurse who was sacked following the incident, she never accessed Smollett's records, but merely scrolled past them as she was searching for another patient.

An employee in another department came to her desk and asked if Smollett been admitted under an alias, the worker said, adding that she didn't ask why the information was needed because she believed it to be a professional request.

Following a lengthy investigation by Chicago police, the actor is now facing a felony charge of disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report in the hope the hoax would boost his career and salary.

Smollett had gotten into hot water back on January 29, when he'd been rushed to Northwestern Hospital for treatment of wounds. On January 28 - the day before the "attack" - Bon [Abel Osundairo] wrote, 'I know you're traveling today, make sure you get at least 45 mins of cardio.' Another text on January 20 outlines a menu for the day, including chicken thigh, StarKist Tuna, Eggs and Smucker's peanut butter. The Nigerian brothers, Abel and Ola Osundairo, denied sending the letter.

She maintains that she was simply scrolling to look at another patient's name-not Smollett's, and that she may have been fired simply because of the scroll.
