Jussie Smollett will be sued by the City of Chicago after "refusing to reimburse" the cost of investigating an alleged assault on him in the city.
Prosecutors say a homophobic and racist attack was staged to boost the actor's career, but Smollett has always maintained his innocence.
The 36-year-old was given seven days to pay $130,000 (£99,000) to cover the investigation's cost.
The deadline passed on Thursday and now a civil complaint will be filed.
The City of Chicago's law department said it will "pursue the full measure of damages allowed", adding in a statement that the lawsuit will be filed "in the near future".
