Jussie Smollett

The cast of Empire is filming a big funeral scene for a major character who dies on the final season of the FOX TV musical. According to Twitter users, film crews were spotted inside the Fourth Presbyterian Church on Michigan Avenue in Chicago on Friday.

Yesterday, rumors spread like wildfire that Jussie Smollett's character Jamal Lyon met his maker and that Smollett was being written out of the show.

But 20th Century Fox Television and FOX Entertainment were quick to deny the rumors in a statement to @ABC7chicago on Thursday.

"The idea that Jussie Smollett has been, or would be, written off of EMPIRE is patently ridiculous. He remains a core player on this very successful series and we continue to stand behind him."

According to ABC7 News reporter Rob Elgas, Abel Osundairo and his brother Ola Osundairo are now "under arrest" and are being held without bond.

Elgas tweeted: "The two potential suspects in the Smollet investigation ARE under arrest. They are not able to leave; police have them under arrest."

The Osundairo brothers were taken into custody on Wednesday, Feb. 13, at Chicago's O'Hare Airport shortly after they arrived on a flight from Africa.

A family member told police the brothers flew to Nigeria on the same day that Smollett was allegedly attacked in Chicago on Jan. 29.

Cops have until 5:45 p.m. today to charge them with a crime or cut them loose.

For now, cops say the brothers are classified as "potential suspects" and they have not been charged yet.

A police source tells ABC7 reporter Rob Elgas: "Detectives have probable cause that they may have been involved in an alleged crime and we are working to corroborate the allegations and investigative timeline".

Meanwhile, according to sources, a lawyer representing the Osundairo brothers say they deny any involvement in the case. Additionally, Smollett told investigators the 2 men are not the people who attacked him.

Police identified the brothers after speaking with rideshare companies and taxi services to ID passengers who were dropped off or picked up in the area of the attack.

Investigators subpoenaed Smollett's phone records via his wireless carrier - then tricked him into providing his own phone records to compare. Detectives focused in on the numbers he deleted from his phone records.

Smollett reportedly followed one of the brothers on Twitter.com. @CWBchicago tweeted a video of one of the muscular hunks doing a hand stand on a treadmill in the gym at Smollett's Chicago condominium.

By late Thursday night, Smollett had scrubbed every tweet and Instagram post he made describing his attackers as MAGA cap-wearing Trump supporters.

    ___________________________
    so why are they even being detained? if the 'victim' says they are NOT the attackers, you can't hold them on bleach and ski masks which could most prob be found in the majority of homes in the area. what else are they being charged with??????

    "Smollett follows the brothers on social media and the Osundairos’ attorney told CBSChicago 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 on a posing video last month."

  • wigmon68

    While I haven't seen the actual charges posted, recall that a racist, homophobic threatening letter was sent a week before the attack. The letter was partially put together with letters cutout from a magazine and pictures that looked like they were drawn by a 4 year old. also, the letter was sent from the south side of chicago, which is where the men went to high school.

  • bemetoo

    They innocent

  • Carrington

    Soooo, two white guys hwhooped your a$$ and shouted MAGA... and THESE two jet black Nigerian MFs are the culprits. Two people you actually follow on the internets. Two people who have worked with you in the past... one who happens to have been in your building... in your gym working out..
    And, you looked at these two MFS and didn't realize that they were black?

    So these dudes hopped in an Uber at 2 am, in subzero weather, making sure to bring some rope and bleach with them...
    And when they got here, they were just were fortunate that Jussie had no food in his house and had decided to run down to Subway to get a sandwich. Then their paths just happened to cross... and all this went down.

    Hmm.. Amazing coincidences, I'd say.

    He said his attackers were two white men. Now. I’m old school so I still use my eyes to appraise a situnario...and from what I have observed of the suspects...they don’t fit the profile. I feel like the best witness, the Subway sandwich, is not going to be able to corroborate shat on this one.

    Well all season long they've been teasing us about a DEATH. Lucius has been crying in that funeral home all by himself. And I remember thinking, who the hell died? And then they teased about one of the sons was killed, it looked like Andre. But then there's a 4th son, illegitimate son by Lucius (damn! how many illegitimate kids he got!), who took over the company.
    I'm afraid to watch when it airs, because whoever died, I won't want them to be the one.
    I think it's Jamal.

  • Li-Wright

    Telephones don't lie! That's why he didn't want to give CPD the cell phones....his arse is OUT at Empire. Bye!

    Them some big prison looking dudes compared to him, if they really attacked him, there's no way he makes it out there w that little scratch. Also, I can't see how he managed to punch one of them back after they punched him if they both attacked him. Unless they didn't want to hit him hard if they were indeed the attackers, but one punch from them seems like at least he falls down. I could be wrong. And if they did it without him aiding in it, the bleach thing draws my suspicions, black dudes ain't running around with bleach.

  • wigmon68

    The orchestration is that there never was an attack. smollett tied the rope around his own neck or was part of the special treatment on the "service call". He dumped bleach on himself, then had someone else call police so it looked more "real". The only question right now is, who else was in on it?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    If the series is coming to an end what would be the purpose of this 'publicity stunt'?

    I thought Auntie said that Jussie was going to be cut from the cast?

    Maybe another network or Netflix will pick up the series and recast the role of Cookie or write her out (maybe she goes back to prison due to some error).

    Nah. That lie has to stop. His defense attorney might advise him to zip it with no further interviews or responses which means the lying with stop. But, looks like the damage has already been said & done.

  • J2PC

    That too would be a lie. If they spoke, he would know their voices since he actually knows them. Moreover, he has seen them together a number of times to recognize them even if in a half-lit area.

    They are released based on what they revealed during interview. Now, more investigation will be looked into that. Looks like they didn't create, report the 'alleged' hoax nor kept it going with lies. Once questioned, all they had to do was tell their side which got them released.

  • J2PC

    WE...as a race...? Nah, he is looking like a liar due to his own behavior. He is not me, WE nor us. People are individuals first & foremost representing themselves & their families.

    Individuals are responsible for their own negative actions, lifestyles & behaviors. Has nothing to do with me or some of the rest of us.

    A sociologist once pointed out during a classroom experiment to prove those with self-esteem issues thinks the bad behaviors of others in a club setting thinks it makes us all look bad by gender.

    Those with healthier self-esteem don't possess a herd-like mentality and conform to group-think in a setting. They differentiate themselves from behaviors knowing who they are & what they do from others and excuse themselves from the scene.

    They didn't need to flip. All they had to do was give their responses and not lie instead of being ruined in their careers or life & going to prison for somebody else's lies, especially since the investigators already have the facts testing to see if they would lie or be honest.

    Let that be the liar lies that he & his lawyers to get him of. Nothing they can do but ensure either that they are set free or lie and do serious prison time for another man who even said that those men wouldn't do that to him.

    Just like oitnb, I've only seen the 1st trailer (or clip) of Empire before the it was ever aired. Never bothered watching either shows.

    Didn't like seeing how Black folks can only get a show if they are willing to be portrayed in another stereotypical role & negative light.

    Maybe it is not just about the show. Take another look at the GMA interview with Robin. He gives his purpose.

    Perhaps since the show as ending, he needed to create a scenario to a message to ghey little boys that he is not weak, but a man who fights back and should be seen as their Hero or role model (which is now backfiring).
