Jussie Smollett Did Not Pay Nigerian Brothers $3500 To Attack Him – Source

A new report has emerged claiming that Empire star Jussie Smollett did not pay Nigerian brothers Ola and Abel Osundairo $3,500 to beat him up. This is coming after reports surfaced that Smollett staged the homophobic and racist attack. Recall the Chicago Police Department alleged the Gay actor paid the brothers $3,500 (£2,681) to beat him up in Chicago, before they proceeded to put a noose around his neck and poured bleach on him. New sources has told TMZ that the 36-year-old never gave the brothers money to beat him up.Read the TMZ report below; ”The brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo made a deal with Jussie to train him for 5 weeks so he could get in shape for an upcoming music video. Jussie had said to Ola that he wanted abs like his. Both Abel and Ola agreed to train Jussie, and also give him a 5-week nutrition plan.”Our sources say Jussie told the brothers he would pay them for their services, but no specific amount was discussed. A few days before the “attack,” Jussie wrote the brothers a check for $3,500. The memo line read, “5 weeks training nutrition plan.”Our sources say Ola and Abel told the grand jury they were paid for the 5-week program and not for the “attack.” One source connected with the brothers did say Ola and Abel felt the amount was “a little high” but no one ever specifically said anything about any of the money being part of a scheme. We’ve learned the brothers also told the grand jury that they had nothing to do with the threatening letter mailed to Jussie Smollett 8 days before the “attack.”Photo Credit: Getty
