Jussie Smollett

Police executed a no-knock warrant at the home of 2 persons of interest in the Jussie Smollett attack case. According to CWBChicago.com, police served the no-knock warrant at a home in Wrigleyville.

Among the items seized during the raid were a red hat, 4 bottles of bleach, a pair of Nike sneakers, 2 laptops, 1 iPad and tablet, and a receipt for a clothesline rope.

Update: Police also seized a magazine, postage stamps, and handwriting samples - possibly to compare to a threatening letter Smollett received at the FOX TV studio in Chicago a week prior to the alleged hate attack on Smollett.

The Black male suspects, who are brothers, were arrested Wednesday night at Chicago's O'Hare Airport, according to CWBChicago.

The 2 suspects worked as extras on the Empire TV show, according to CWBChicago.com.

After kicking in the door to their home, police reportedly asked the family if the brothers were friends with Smollett, who stars in the FOX TV musical about a Black record company dynasty based in Chicago.

According to Charlie De Mar, a reporter for CBS Chicago, the family told police the brothers flew to Nigeria on the day of the alleged attack.

According to TMZ, police identified the two suspects through "rideshare and/or taxicab records".

ABC7 reporter Rob Elgas tweeted: "Multiple sources tell @ABC7Chicago Eyewitness News Jussie Smollett and the 2 men who are being questioned by police staged the attack - allegedly because his character was being written out of the show Empire."

Smollett has insisted all along that he was attacked by 2 Trump supporters who yelled racist and homophobic slurs at him. His manager, Brandon Z. Moore, told police he was on the phone with Smollett during the attack and heard the attackers yell "This is MAGA country!"

According to CWBChicago.com, Chicago police acquired Smollett's full phone records through a subpoena to his wireless provider. They compared the phone records with the redacted records Smollett gave them.

CWBChicago tweeted: "Source states phone records provided by Smollett were a spreadsheet. He downloaded his phone activity into a spreadsheet and then deleted certain phone calls. "He did the [detectives'] job for them because then they only had to focus on the numbers he deleted."

CWBChicago posted a tip they received last week:

"They've identified the two Black friends of his (through facial recognition) who are from Wrigleyville and took Lyft to the scene. Clothesline from Ace Hardware. Mayor wants to release info now, cod wants two friends to confess first after they have tower dump.

The friends "attacked" JS as planned and then went back to Wrigleyville. They are the two on video."

Smollett reportedly hired Sunshine Sachs public relations firm - the same PR firm that represented Harvey Weinstein after he was accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of Hollywood starlets.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Are you saying he did all of this to keep his job on Empire? Well he definitely will be written out for sure now. I doubt he gets anymore roles with the way this fell apart. Side note: I heard Trader Joe's is hiring.

    According to @Zigmanfreud on Twitter.com, Jussie was having sex with one of the Nigerian brothers.

    When is he scheduled for arrest?

  • Mielle Downey

    Maybe they needs so much bleach to keep thier teeth white?I don't know at this point I'm concerned that Jussy will be very fragile when the truth is revealed. The Nigerians sold him out and are talking he thought they were not coming back when they left. He should get an award for the dumbest celebrity criminal. They are going to roast his behind soo bad.

    He was supposed to show up at CPD headquarters for an interview today. But he was a no-show. He knew he would be arrested because his friends were arrested last night.

  • Mielle Downey

    The web is becoming untangled now.

  • Ebony Starr

    After watching the excerpts from the GMA, his words and body language were very telling. He was really lucky to have an acting jobs because he was not very convincing.

  • Kylla Williams

    and this is why u cant just go off of passion and the word of someone simply because they're believable. this is why its important to investigate and get some evidence.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I don't think he's mentally or emotionally strong enough to handle prison. He may unfortunately off himself. This isn't going to end on a positive note.

  • Li-Wright

    Wait a minute, wait a minute, explain this! Is Smollett being written out of Empire? Did he stage the attack?
    Wow! that's deep. I did notice on the finale, Lucious/Terrence Howard is at a funeral and crying. In fact, he's been crying in the funeral home in flashbacks. It's like a teaser. And I kept wondering - who the hell died? Which one of the brothers died? Was it Andre? Wow, I can't get my head around this.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I searched Jussie's name on the Internet, and not one leftist news outlet is reporting this story. ?

  • Li-Wright

    Empire is / was the biggest he's ever been. He's never had a recording career. I don't remember seeing him in any TV shows. The name just popped up on Empire.

  • Mielle Downey

    That is no surprise because it kills thier narrative of hate.

  • TheOwley

    So he lied to the police and the FBI too. If he doesn't go to prison, everyone in jail for lying to the authorities should demand their release.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He is the reason a lot of people stopped watching Empire. Taraji and the others will avoid him like the plague now.

  • TheOwley

    Everyone on the planet did al most immediately except the political stooges and Hollywood that sympathized with him.

  • Li-Wright

    If you've been watching Empire, from the beginning this season, Terrence/Lucius has been in the funeral home crying. It's like a teaser. And on the previews for the finale, one of the sons was killed. I thought it was Andre.

  • Mielle Downey

    I keep Hollywood on mute and I not buying what they are selling none of the time.

  • Reenaface

    So instead of looking for other acting jobs like " normal" supposed actors do when they know they're job is ending he pulls this " stunt"

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I haven't watched Empire in several years. Thanks for the info. Now it males sense.

  • CPA

    Exactly

  • TheOwley

    This is why the MSM wants to eliminate alternative news sources. The dye was caste when he lied to the world, they got the political hit job they wanted. He's inadvertently helped Trump in his ratings.

  • Reenaface

    I thought that they were referring to the newly discovered biracial son that Lucious had with the white crack hoe back in the day. The son he didn't know about and who avenged revenge on the Lyons by taking their company. I thought that he was going to be the one who ended up dead.

  • A D N

    Well...he certainly is my reason and not because of his sexuality. I lost interest because he really is not a singer. I dislike the billy goat sound as well as his acting. I also lost interest when Demi Moore's daughter came on the show.

  • Kylla Williams

    thats why i stopped. between the man on man and him always cryin about something made me sooo not like it.

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    Who seeks sex out in such cold temperature then say hate crime...rope choking him out, MAGA, bleach poured on him, noose etc...? Too far Smh. He needs to apologize to all involved.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He won't apologize. He will play the victim of hate and bigotry under Trump. He will say he was stressed, etc.

  • TheOwley

    They are worthless but unfortunately, millennials with the mind full of mush listen to them.

  • Mielle Downey

    Trump derangement syndrome lmaooooo

  • Navybeans95

    Because he was being written out of Empire?...smh..he just flushed the toilet on his career...and he's probably going to face charges...he's about as sharp as a bowling ball...

    He doesn’t understand how this validate Trump. He has done so much damage. If he doesn’t go to jail he probably will commit suicide. His career is over.

  • Elevated Soul

    This story goes against the narrative. A Black gay male conspiring against supporters of President Trump as well as maligning President Trump is accepted by Alt-Left media....It should be criminal what they keep from the public.This is why people need to use common sense and do research.

  • Peace

    Wait dude is mad talented. If you don’t like his scenes use your remote. Only problem you can’t just change the channel in real life. These dynamics exists.
    I’m an Empire fan. But I believe it had a good run and Hulu or Brown Sugar will air all the seasons or fans can purchase them on Vudu or several other platforms. It was a hit for FOX. It’s just a show.

The police department stated the claims above are unconfirmed by detectives who are actually working the case. Why are people in a rush to make such allegations against Jussie? Why not wait for the evidence to be gathered first and let the chips fall where they may? It is rare for a police department to put out such a statement to clarify misinformation like this.

    Tea leaves - jussie said in the interview that 2 men yelled at him from across the street. the police have said on the video that the men can be seen walking away from where smollett lives about 15 minutes before smollett returned from subway. My guess is that what they yelled is "we put the bleach and the rope where you wanted, see you on the set."

  • NeverSurprised

    Well obviously he was lying about some of it. He said he was "attacked" by WHITE males who were Trump supporters. These were two BLACK men who worked on the show with him.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Why would he lie and say they were Trump supporters who yelled racial slurs at him?

    "camped out" Dead!! Happy Valentines Day Sandra!!

  • Allihave2say

    They're denying these claims to avoid public scrutiny. Jussie pushed all the right buttons for the media 1/2 black, gay man in the presence of a Right-wing President with white folks who believe the way to MAGA is to lynch and enslave blacks while turning others away at the border.

    I remember when Jussie lied about leaving the show before for attention and feedback. In fact maybe that stunt then was because he was being written off.

  • Taj

    Oh please. Let it be a celebrity you're not a fan of. You would be all over them like white on rice if you found out they filed a false police report. Don't act like it's not a a big deal because race-baiting and lying for publicity is actually a big deal.

  • Joy King

    That’s Empire throwing Jussie under the bus. No way do I believe they were writing off his character. They built the entire show making him the chosen son. But if what the media is reporting is true, then Empire is now doing damage control and it’s a wrap for him.

    Maybe I’m wrong, but I always felt like if Jussie was lying, one of the higher ups on Empire put the idea in his head. Clearly they didn’t help orchestrate the plan, as this mess was so poorly executed.

    So Jussie actually got jumped by these Nigerian Nuts? Humm.. makes sense that they would disguise themselves and all, but in that cold weather, He can beat his own meat. Subway would have been all he got. He must have owed dudes money or something. It was a planned attack sounds like and the truth will make them Nigerians confess to everything.

    Jussie Smollett has reportedly scrubbed his Twitter and Instagram accounts of posts he wrote claiming he was attacked by two MAGA hat wearing Trump supporters.

  • samuel severino

    Neither did Trump. That is why they no longer talk about Russian collusion because it is has been proven that there was none.

  • DeeFromLA

    He is a fool if he did all this nonsense but I must agree, the boy has some really great skin.

  • the guest

    Jussie Smollet just may have single handedly won Trump the 2020 election. The backlash of this hoax will have huge ramifications on gay rights and the anti-trump movement. Jussie wasn’t thinking at all. Another way you know Jussie’s lying is that Taraji did not come forward to defend him. She always stands for justice but she was silent on this hoax.

  • samuel severino

    You are really hoping that it comes out the way that you want it to come out, don’t you? You are like the person beaten in an argument but still trying to hang on to one foolish little point that has nothing to do with the overall argument.

    CWB Chicago is pretty reliable. They are the crime reporting news in Chicago and the northside. Even though the CPD says it's not confirmed, I tend to believe there's some kernel of truth to the CWB Chicago story and TMZ is fairly reliable.

    But Empire is coming up on its last season I do believe, so everybody's going to be out of a job unless Fox renews.

  • Li-Wright

    Well, who's dead and in the casket? Why is Lucius in the funeral home crying over someone's death?

  • Li-Wright

    This is the last season I do believe, so they will all be written off if the show isn't renewed. And Remember, Disney now owns Fox, so there could be some major changes coming to the show.

    I’m glad the Chicago Police Department put out a statement distancing themselves from this misinformation. Last week I was under the impression they were unethically leaking information to the TMZ. It’s becoming clear to me that the source of the misinformation seems to be coming from Trump supporters.

  • SeehereSeehere

    Jussie needs to have his lawyers fire off cease and desist letters similar to Queen Latifah years back when she notified gossip rags that she will sue for defamation of character if they continued in their pursuits of reporting false scandalous information.

  • SeehereSeehere

    Here's the latest from CWB Chicago:
    Two brothers, Olabinjo “Ola” Osundairo and Abimbola “Abel” Osundairo,
    have been identified as the men taken into custody by Chicago police for
    questioning as “potential persons of interest” in last month's
    purported hate crime attack of Empire TV start Jussie Smollett.

    The Osundairos spent the night in police custody and are expected to
    undergo questioning again today, but neither has been charged with any
    crime in connection with the Smollett case. Police need to either charge
    or release the brothers before 5:45 p.m. tonight—that's when the
    Osundairos will have been in custody for 48 hours, the typical cut-off
    point for police to hold a person without charging in the United States.

    Smollett follows the brothers on social media and the

    yesterday that the men sometimes work out at a gym with Smollett. Abel
    Osundairo is an aspiring bodybuilder who used the Smollett song "Ha Ha
    (I Love You)" as the music track

  • wigmon68

    I understand you have been pushing the wait and see angle and I think that is a very noble position that should be taken in every circumstance. I would say that taking that position should mean that one shouldn't be supporting/believing smollett or taking his story at face value until all the facts are known. That doesn't mean I don't think people have the right to look at a story and apply critical thinking to that information and posting their opinion on a blog site. But the media on the other hand has a different responsibility, but they are the ones that are always jumping on anything that fits the narrative they want to tell.

    you did jump on blaming police for things early on like leaks to tmz when tmz clearly stated their first reports were coming from smolletts camp, so I am not sure you are consistently following your own advice.

  • Phillybruh

    Well, I did too. I thought it was the biracial son, but on the finale they showed previews of Andre being rushed to the hospital and Lucius crying in the funeral home, so I thought it was Andre'. That's a teaser of course.

    All your points are reported as is valid from all the media is reporting. I’m sick of seeing this crap unfold starting off 2019. Should have kept they Mr Universe looking behinds in Nigeria

    I'm glad you did, mine was spent making repast food but my kids got me together and I won a getaway for two right after my cousin's funeral.
