No comments

It seems like actor, Jussie Smollett is not quite out of the woods, aka court, just yet as brothers Abimbola Osundairo and Olabinjo Osundairo are reportedly suing the “Empire” star and his lawyers.

According to several sources, the two brothers are suing Smollett and his lawyers for defamation. We are told that the brothers revealed that they have suffered “extreme emotional distress, humiliation, anxiety, damages to their reputation, and damages to current and prospective business relations” according to TMZ. It has also been revealed that the two have been having issues finding work ever since the case was dismissed.

If you recall, the two brothers were arrested for their involvement in the “hoax” homophobic attack earlier this year. They appeared to be the assailant but told the authorities their truth, saying that Jussie planned the whole thing.
In the lawsuit filed, a statement from the two brothers said, “We have sat back and watched lie after lie being fabricated about us in the media only so one big lie can continue to have a life. These lies are destroying our character and reputation in our personal and professional lives.” It continued,
“Those who know us personally know hate for anyone is not who we are. We try to spread as much love and positivity with whoever we come in contact with. We will no longer sit back and allow these lies to continue. “

However, the brothers’ careers aren’t the only things that may be at stake, as Jussie may not be a part of “Empire anymore. Well according to the producer himself, Lee Daniels, the decision to cut Smollett is now being decided. Hmmm
