In a new interview with Variety, Graham was asked about Jussie Smollett, the “Empire” actor recently charged for allegedly staging a hoax hate crime against himself.

“Jussie has been misunderstood,” Graham said. “As a matter of fact, they know that. That story that came out about Jussie in Chicago is not true about Jussie. Jussie is a friend of mine, also. They have totally reconstructed his story.”

He doesn’t just have Smollett’s back, though. Graham also defended singer R. Kelly, who was recently charged with multiple counts of sexual abuse.

“He’s a good friend of mine,” Graham told Variety. “I wish him the best. I hate that it’s happening to him. There’s a reason why women come out after the fact. He has my support 100 per cent.”
