Which is why it’s no surprise we are now hearing in the news how the Empire actor paid 2 friends to stage his racist, homophobic attack in Chicago on Jan. 29.
On Saturday, Fox32 News quoted sources within the Chicago Police Department who confirmed Smollett paid two brothers to purchase a rope and 2 red hats to stage a hoax MAGA attack.
The brothers were arrested Wednesday and released late Friday without charges.
Chicago police are “eager” to re-interview Smollett after questioning the brothers.
The 36-year-old ‘Empire’ star has retained 3 attorneys, Todd Pugh, Victor Henderson and high-powered defense attorney Michael Monico.
Pugh and Henderson released a statement late Saturday, denying claims that Smollett staged his own attack.
I hope the 2 brothers Jussie Smollett hired have proof he hired them. Aside from the inconsistencies in Smollett’s story and no phone records much of his story never added up.
