Jussie Smollett "maintains his innocence" after being indicted with 16 counts of filing a false police report.

According to police, the actor, who is black and openly gay, paid two brother $3,500 to attack him on January 29 in the hope of advancing his career and because he was unhappy with salary.

The actor was originally charged with one felony count of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report by the Cook County State's Attorney's Office on February 20, according to the outlet.

The 16 counts are based on each alleged falsehood Smollett relayed to the police officers who initially responded to his call and the detectives assigned later.

Smollett was charged last month with felony disorderly conduct for the allegedly false report he made with Chicago police.

After posting bond and being released from jail last month, Smollett returned to the Chicago set of Empire, the Fox drama in which he stars as main character Jamal Lyon.

"Poice at the time said the attack was a publicity stunt because Smollett was upset about his pay on "Empire", CBS Chicago reports". The grand jury also reportedly accused Smollett of falsifying a crime. But in a press conference following his arrest, Superintendent of the Chicago Police Department Eddie T. Johnson claimed that Smollett staged his alleged attack to promote his career.

Fox network and the studio that produces Empire had no immediate comment on the latest indictment.

Smollett is scheduled to be arraigned on March 14, however, ABC 7 reported that experts believe it is likely he will strike a plea deal and potentially not spend time in prison. Additional details that Smollett apparently included in the second interview include: the men approached him from behind, Smollett fought back, and all three men fell to the ground where Smollett said he was kicked in the back and felt someone pulling on his neck.

The actor's attorneys released a statement on Saturday, claiming "Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with".

The TV executives revealed that they have taken the decision to remove his character from the final two episodes of the fifth season, which is now airing. But police said the brothers then said Smollett had paid them $3,500 to stage the attack.
