It Gets Better-> Jussie Smollett Rehearsed MAGA Assault With Nigerian Brothers: Report
The wolf who cried MAGA.
The Jussie Smollett hate hoax officially blew up, but the ‘Empire’ actor refuses to admit he staged the MAGA attack that took place two weeks ago.
Fox reported Saturday afternoon that Chicago police sources confirmed detectives were able to show that the Nigerian brothers who were “persons of interest” and questioned by police, bought the rope found around Jussie Smollett’s neck at Crafty Beaver Hardware the weekend of January 25th.
Jussie Smollett paid for the rope — The Nigerian brothers were paid $3,500 before leaving for Nigeria and were promised another $500 as soon as they returned back to the US.
It gets better…
According to sources, Jussie Smollett and the two Nigerian brothers rehearsed the MAGA attack.
Sources said one of the brothers held the rope and poured bleach while the other wore a plain red hat and yelled racist and homophobic slurs at Smollett, reported CBS Chicago.
Smollett also had the Nigerian brothers purchase two red ball caps from Uptown Beauty Supply to wear during the attack so they would appear to be Trump supporters.
It was reported Saturday night that the Chicago Police Department is no longer looking at ‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett as a victim in his alleged assault — but rather an “active participant.”
Despite all of the reports from police sources that Jussie Smollett staged the hate crime, his lawyers pushed back in a statement late Saturday night calling the Chicago cops liars.
Jussie Smollett’s attorneys, Todd S. Pugh and Victor P. Henderson, released a statement late Saturday night insisting the alleged MAGA attack that took place on January 29th in the subfreezing temps in Chicago was real.
According to reports, high-profile attorney Michael Monico is no longer representing Jussie Smollett after a disagreement about the decision to release Saturday night’s statement.
Jussie Smollett could get up to three years in prison for filing a false police report in the state of Illinois.
