A source told TMZ that the R&B crooner also donated $10,000 to the Flint KIDS program.

In recent years, thousands of children in Flint were exposed to dangerously high levels of lead in their drinking water - as a result of a public health crisis that is still ongoing.


According to The Detroit Metro Times, Copeny was a beauty pageant contestant, hence her nickname: “Little Miss Flint.”


The 12-year-old supergirl has become one of the many faces of the Flint water crisis.

Smollett, 37, is no stranger to philanthropy.

Last year, he donated $125,000 to various charities ahead of the holidays, including Flint KIDS and the Black AIDS Institute.


This was before Smollett was unceremoniously fired from his award winning role on Lee Daniels’ FOX drama series in April, after he was accused by Chicago police authorities of orchestrating a heinous hate attack on himself three months prior.

And just like that, his career was in the toilet.

Because we are supposed to believe every single thing police departments accuse black people — with no priors — of.



Last week, TV Line reported that Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney said discussions are underway to possibly have the embattled cast member return in his starring role before the show wraps its six-season run this spring.


Smollett, who is suing Chicago’s police department for “malicious prosecution,” is reportedly still under contract with the production.
