Jussie Smollett may have some trouble on his hands when it comes to to his “Hate Crime” attack because the cops have found a suspect, and raided his home. (BTW we said the guys in the surveillance video looked ethic!)
Days before the bizarre incident went down in Chicago, Abimbola “Abel” Osundairo posted a Instagram video of himself body building posing to Jussie Smollett’s hit song, “Ha Ha (I Love You).” Abel is only wearing only his underwear while showing off his physique. His dog aisles makes a cameo in the awkward video.
Abel posted the video 9 days before Jussie was attacked in Chicago. The brother share an IG , and guess what ?
Jussie Smollett follows the brothers on Instagram!
On Thursday night, the star was accused by anonymous police sources cited by local networks of staging the attack.
In his reports to police, Smollett says he was attacked by two assailants whose facial features he could not make out but that it was a racist, homophobic ambush during which they called him ‘Empire f****t n****r’ and shouted: ‘This is MAGA country!’
They had no idea what was going on, and they’ve been detained since then,’ Gloria Schmidt, the pair’s lawyer, told CBS Chicago on Thursday night.
‘When they first learned about what happened to him they were horrified.
Smollett cried in his first interview about the attack that was aired on Good Morning America on Thursday and said he was heartbroken that his story had been questioned!
The brother’s lawyers spoke with CBS and released these statements:
‘This is someone they’ve worked with, so they don’t want to see somebody go through that.
‘They are really baffled why they are people of interest.
‘They really don’t understand how they even got information that linked them to this horrific crime, but they are not guilty of it,’ she said.
TMZ reported that detectives found the men by looking at ride-sharing history records from the night of the attack.
Osundario is 29 years old ,and originally from Nigeria. He is a frequent competitor in the International Natural Bodybuilding Association, and also a personal trainer.
Abel and his brother, Ola, are currently being interrogated by Chicago Police in connection with the alleged attack on Smollett.
The attorney for the brothers says they personally know Smollett, and work out with him at their gym. They deny any involvement in the alleged attack.
When Ola and Abel’s apartment was raided, cops found bleach and a script from the TV show, “Empire.” No one has been charged with a crime as of yet.
When we questioned the validity of Jussie’s story, and how things were NOT adding up we didn’t want to think he faked the whole incident. We thought it was a booty call gone wrong! All of the new is alleged, but remember where you saw it first!
