Jussie Smollett has been ordered to pay US$130,000 to cover the cost of the investigation into an alleged assault on him in January in Chicago.
The actor became the subject of the investigation after he was accused of staging the attack on himself.
Smollett has always said he is an innocent victim and the charges against him were dropped earlier this week.
But he has now been ordered to cover the costs of police officers, including overtime hours used on the case.
A letter from the city of Chicago to Jussie Smollett, demands he pay $130,106.15 in the next seven days.
