For some weeks now Jussie Smollett has been in some kind of wahala that is now confusing everybody, the Empire actor was said to have been attacked by racist and in a recent report Jussie Smollet is also said to have staged his attack which he has denied continuously.
Nigerian brothers, Abimbola “Abel” and Olabinjo “Ola” Osundairowere arrested on Wednesday but released without charge on Friday as police say they’ve found “new evidence”. The Osundairos, who are acquaintances with Jussie, are said to be cooperating fully with police. They reportedly told police that Jussie orchestrated the attack and they rehearsed it days before the incident took place.
CBS wrote that Jussie, was upset after a racist letter sent to Empire’s studio didn’t get a “bigger reaction.”
“When the letter didn’t get enough attention, he concocted the staged attack,” the source from CBS stated. They also said Jussie paid the brothers $3,500 for the attack.
Even TMZ reported almost the same thing saying that the Osundairos “told cops they got in a car with Jussie and scouted a location, settling on the one right outside the actor’s apartment. The brothers said Jussie chose the spot because he believed a camera would have captured the action.”
Also the brothers in a joint statement said: “We are not racist. We are not homophobic and we are not anti-Trump. We were born and raised in Chicago and are American citizens.”
And then the Chicago Police said; We are not doing any interviews or making any official statements until we can corroborate some information that was shared with police. Until we meet with the Empire cast member, we are not able to confirm, deny or comment on any of the information that was released unofficially.
When this investigation is over, we will have a detailed accounting of the case. While we are not in a position to confirm, deny or comment on the validity of what’s been unofficially released, there are some developments in this investigation and detectives have some follow-ups to complete which include additional investigation and speaking to the individual who reported the incident.
