Jussie Smollett’s world is getting smaller and smaller. The two Nigerian brothers that he works out with have been cooperating after police threatened to arrest them for assault a couple of sources say.
They have already led police to the Ace Hardware store, where they bought the rope. Police have seized a bottle of bleach they found at Smollett’s apartment to see if it matches what he claimed he was assaulted with. There are unconfirmed reports that Smollett paid the brothers to participate in a hoax attack.
Smollett helped make a commercial in favor of Hillary in the 2016 presidential election.
Strangely, Mr. Smollett still had the rope around his neck when the police arrived to his apartment to take a report of the attack.
According to Rafer Weigel, the Nigerian brothers agreed to cooperate with police after the police threatened to charge them with battery.
“There are unconfirmed reports that Smollett paid the two brothers to perform the alleged scheme,” Rafer Weigel reported.
The Smollett hoax took an interesting turn Friday night after Chicago Police released the two Nigerian brotherswho were held for 48 hours and questioned as “persons of interest.”
CWB, a local Chicago crime blog is reporting the Nigerian brothers, who appeared as extras on the show ‘Empire’ may have flipped on Jussie Smollett.
It was reported Friday that Jussie Smollett hired high-powered criminal defense attorney Michael Monico. Mr. Monico also represents Michael Cohen.
According to reports, police released the Nigerian brothers based on “new evidence” in the case — detectives are also analyzing a bottle of bleach seized from Jussie Smollett’s apartment.
Another hate hoax goes up in smoke!
