When asked why Smollett refused to turn over his cell phone to police after the alleged attack, Smollett admitted that Lemon had sent Smollett a text indicating the police did not believe any attack had occurred.
Chicago Tribune reporter Megan Crepeau stated, “he declined to give his phone to CPD in part because earlier he’d gotten a text from Don Lemon ‘saying he’d gotten a text from CPD saying they don’t believe me.”
