Brothers involved in Jussie Smollett case file suit against his lawyer

Brothers involved in Jussie Smollett case file suit against his lawyer

This is when lawyers for the Osundairo brothers say Smollett's attorneys "doubled down" on "untrue" statements that the brothers were behind the "criminally homophobic, racist, and violent attack" against Smollett.

Police allege that Smollett paid the brothers to help him stage an attack in which he said two masked men beat him, hurled racist and homophobic slurs at him, doused him with a chemical substance and looped a rope around his neck.

Geragos and Glandian have not yet commented on the suit.

Although the brothers were born and raised in Chicago, their lawsuit states they are Nigerian Americans, and often visit family in Nigeria.

"The brothers are suing under claims of defamation and false light", reports the Chicago Sun Times.

"These lies are destroying our character and reputation in our personal and professional lives", the statement continued.

Likewise, in the suit, the Osundairo brothers speak openly about the staged attack and say that Jussie Smollett paid them and planned every step of the event.

Jussie Smollet's older brother, JoJo penned an op-ed letter defending his sibling and begged the question: what if Jussie is telling the truth? We try to spread as much love and positivity with whoever we come in contact with.

"Those who know us personally know we don't have hate for anyone.We will no longer sit back and allow these lies to continue".

Geragos and Glandian released a statement of their own, saying that "at first we thought this comical legal document was a parody".

The lawyers expressed confidence that the courts would dismiss the lawsuit.

Glandian and Geragos issued a response, vowing to "expose" the brothers for perpetrating a fraud on the public.

In a controversial move, the Cook County State's Attorney's office dropped the charges against Smollett in exchange for $10,000 and 16 hours of community service, but no admission of guilt on Smollett's part. "This entire situation is a reminder that there should never be an attempt to prove a case in the court of public opinion".

After the charges were dropped, Glandian gave interviews defending Smollett.

Jussie Smollett maintains that he is innocent, but now is suffering from night terrors, Jojo reported.
