Movie Star Jussie Smollett DENIES That He Paid 2 Nigerian Brothers To Attack Him...

Empire star Jussie Smollett has furiously denied paying two Nigerian brothers $3,500 to attack him and says he is 'angered and devastated' after investigators in Chicago claimed he orchestrated his own assault.

Smollett’s attorneys, Todd S. Pugh and Victor P. Henderson, told Entertainment Weekly: 'As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with.

'He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack. Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying.'

His lawyers now say that one of men was Smollett’s personal trainer for a music video. They added: 'One of these purported suspects was Jussie’s personal trainer who he hired to ready him physically for a music video.

'It is impossible to believe that this person could have played a role in the crime against Jussie or would falsely claim Jussie’s complicity.'

The stunning turn of events saw the two men involved in the alleged hoax now fully cooperating with law enforcement, CNN reported Saturday.

On January 29, two men 'yelled out racial and homophobic slurs' while attacking Smollett, the actor told police.

One of the assailants tied a rope around his neck and poured an unknown chemical substance on him, Smollett claimed at the time.

During the attack, the assailants yelled 'Empire f****t' and 'Empire n*****,' the actor has long maintained.

That narrative, however, is now under serious scrutiny by investigators, who reportedly have evidence that Smollett directed his 'attackers' to buy the rope used in the 'assault' at a local hardware store.

Documents prove two Nigerian brothers who work as extras on the highly rated Fox drama bought the rope which was found around Smollett’s neck at Crafty Beaver Hardware Store in Chicago.

The brothers made the purchase on the weekend of January 25.

They also bought two red plain hats that they wore during the alleged attack, according to sources close to the investigation.

Police believe that the red hats were purchased at a local beauty supply store in the Uptown section of Chicago.

'We can confirm that the information received from the individuals questioned by police earlier in the Empire case has in fact shifted the trajectory of the investigation,' Chicago Police spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi said.

'We’ve reached out to the Empire cast member’s attorney to request a follow-up interview.'

Chicago police are now ‘eager to speak to Jussie Smollett’ in light of the new information that was uncovered, according to ABC News.

‘We have been in touch with Smollett's attorneys,’ a Chicago Police Department spokesperson said.

'Due to new evidence as a result of today's interrogations, the individuals questioned by police in the Empire case have now been released without charging and detectives have additional investigative work to complete,' Guglielmi said in a statement on Friday night.

The Osundairo brothers' attorney, Gloria Schmidt, spoke briefly to reporters after their release, hinting that Smollett's legal future could hold difficulties.

'There's so many moving parts to this that will come out in time,' Schmidt said when asked if her clients had helped Smollett stage the attack. 'I'm going to let them tell their story when the time is right.'

Smollett made international headlines after reporting the attack on January 29, in which he said two men assaulted him at 2am on a Chicago street, shouting vile racist and homophobic slurs.

From dailymail...

*Hellooooooooooooooo,the Nigerian Brothers were released without being charged,meaning that the Police saw evidence that showed they were not guilty or hired...........Very Interesting story and show what these celebs will do for breaking headlines....


  1. Like seriously Jamal.....I don't want to believe this
    To what end though

    1. for fame. more fame. and sympathy.

    2. For the rating. Empire wants to kill his character I learn.

    3. Like the guy fucked up big time if this is true

  2. They don tell my naija brothers, if u no talk we go deport u. Na i m boys quickly talk

    1. They were born in America by Nigerian parents. So they’re already citizens, not kpali chasers

  3. Funkeeeeeeeee

    You say wetin?

    International disgrace loading

  4. Yes, i read he faked the story. There were a lot of loopholes in his accusation back then.
    I am not surprising.

    1. I am not surprising too.

    2. 😂It was auto-correct my dear. I corrected it immediately. Check comment 13:25 below with a star, yes that was me.

  5. He was looking for sympathy, and more fame also the Nigerian brothers wore red face-caps to signify Trump supported.He was just trying to cause more political tension in a country that is already politically polarized. Now his career is on the line.

  6. This guy is giving me more reasons not to like him...if you talk now they will say you're homophobic....
    Homophobic kee you there

  7. Tonto and the other naija celebs that carried this matter on their head, how market? Mtcheew!!!!!

  8. Hmmm! You are already famous, what more fame are you looking for?

    1. Is he famous? I don't watch empire,so I don't know him. I know his sister from Tyler Perry's confessions of a marriage counsellor.
      Just got to know him from this incident.

  9. See his red face.. Just imagined him taking D and whimpering like a sissy.. Mshewwww

  10. His story had too many loopholes from the beginning.
    Who leaves a crime scene, walks all the way to where you stay with a noose or rope around their neck?? Who does that?? You remain at the scene after the leave and call Emergency personal.
    Secondly, what Nigerian use homophobic slurs here?? Me, l jump and pass. Almost all the female officers l work with are gays. Have l ever used any slurs at them?? Not my business. Their sexual orientation or inclination is between them and God.
    Nigerians do mind their business a lot here. When the news about the Brothers broke, l felt it didn’t make sense. We don’t do that here.
    Dude paid them and lied. Let him deal with his lies now.
