Jussie Smollett's farfetched claim that he was attacked by two Trump-loving rednecks is quickly falling apart.
Remember the two Nigerian brothers who confessed to being hired by Jussie to stage the attack? Well, the evidence is suggesting they're telling the truth.
The two brothers at the center of the Jussie Smollett case were captured on a ride share camera before the alleged attack on the ‘Empire’ actor, according to sources close to the investigation.
This news comes on the same day that the brothers were seen leaving the grand jury room at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse. They were hiding under hoods, surrounded by what appeared to be law enforcement. The two men met with prosecutors but did not appear before the grand jury, sources tell CBS 2’s Charlie De Mar.
Ola and Abel Osundairo — who sources say worked with Smollett to stage the attack on Jan. 29 in Streeterville – took a ride share to near the location of the attack on North Water Street.
The brothers arrived before Smollett and were seen sitting on a bench, passing time. According to the sources, the brothers appeared nervous on the ride share video. A passing car gave the brothers pause about going through with the plan, sources said.
A short time later, Smollett appeared.
Sources also say the brothers considered backing out of the plan.
The guy has a problem with telling the truth.
