It’s all over for hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett. It appears that he paid the two Nigerian brothers $3,500 to fake an attack on himself. It is not yet known what his motive was, but he could spend the next three years of his life in a prison cell. It is illegal to report a fake crime, and considering the number of hours Chicago police and the FBI have put into this case, I don’t think they will hesitate to recommend charges. The only thing we don’t know is if the prosecutor agrees with bringing charges. Will he or she be willing to suffer the wrath of Hollywood?
Empire star Jussie Smollett paid two men $3,500 to stage an assault against him which he later claimed was an attack motivated by racism and homophobia, investigators in Chicago now believe.
The stunning turn of events has rapidly transformed the beloved actor who was once thought to be the victim of a heinous hate crime into a suspect in a criminal investigation.
The two men involved in the alleged hoax are now fully cooperating with law enforcement, CNN is reporting on Saturday.
On January 29, two men ‘yelled out racial and homophobic slurs’ while attacking Smollett, the actor told police.
One of the assailants tied a rope around his neck and poured an unknown chemical substance on him, Smollett claimed at the time.
That narrative, however, is now under serious scrutiny by investigators, who reportedly have evidence that Smollett directed his ‘attackers’ to buy the rope used in the ‘assault’ at a local hardware store.
Documents prove two Nigerian brothers who work as extras on the highly rated Fox drama bought the rope which was found around Smollett’s neck at Crafty Beaver Hardware Store in Chicago.
