Jussie Smollett Attack: Police Arrest Two Former ‘Empire’ Actors As Suspects

Published: Friday 15th Feb 2019 by Rashad

After weeks of twists, turns, and seemingly no headway made in the case surrounding the attack of ‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett, police have confirmed an arrest has been made.

Details inside:

CBS Chicago reports:

Two brothers being questioned in the Jussie Smollett case are now under arrest, police said.

The men–Obabinjo Osundairo and Abimbola Osundairo–were arrested Friday in connection with an alleged attack on Empire actor Jussie Smollett.  The men were identified by their attorney, Gloria Schmidt.

The suspects being questioned by detectives in the case are brothers who worked on Empire with Smollett.


Despite local police authorities confirming that Smollett is not being treated as a suspect at this time as there is no evidence the incident was a hoax (click here to read more on that), Chicago news outlets are still reporting there is a chance the attack was “potentially orchestrated by the actor himself and involved the two other men.”

The two men were seen on surveillance video near where Smollett told police he was attacked on Jan. 29.  Just a day after we reported the police “identified two people,” CBS Chicago unveiled:

Schmidt said police detained her clients Wednesday evening at Customs at O’Hare. The two men were returning from a trip to Nigeria when officers raided their family’s home on the North Side.

Pictures from the raid show the front door busted off its frame, items thrown across the living room, bedroom doors damaged and clothes tossed everywhere.

Police left behind an inventory list. Some of the items seized include a black face mask hat, an Empire script, phone, receipts, a red hat and bleach.


No charges have been filed at this time.

    I’m glad he wasn’t killed for sure!!

  4. Seth February 15, 2019

    Starting to think it was a hookup gone bad or they were escorts trying to rob him once they knew who he was. Only explanation for him not cooperating with police by showing his phone before he scrubbed it

  5. DIABETES UNBOTHERED ? February 15, 2019

    who cares… im glad he got jumped because he was Weak and Ugly on and off camera.

  6. King of Kingz February 15, 2019

    Idk I just don’t think he’d tell such a big lie & get the police & fbi involved. He has nothing to promote & empire doesn’t come back on until mid March, it’s still the #1 show on Wednesday’s, he’s not getting killed off so what reason would he have to make it all up? Then for Lee & Fox to co sign him, I jus think we gonna have to watch this all play out

  7. Jussie is a liar February 15, 2019

    Hahaha!!! I knew the truth would start to come out in the end! Jussie was saying it was maga supporters he is such a liar! Jussie is a liar!! Caught!!

    • NotoriousTruthTeller February 15, 2019

      I’m sorry but that could be complete bull. What if they wore maskes and they pretended to be Maga supporters?

      • Caleb February 15, 2019

        What are the chances he would run into his gym partners at 2 am randomly in Chicago though?

    What a way to make the Black Community look dumb!
    You lied, pinned it on Trump supporters and had the nerves to compare yourself to Tupac… AUDACITY!
    We supported you and this is how you make us LOOK to draw attention to Empire again? FOH!

    They should LOCK Jussie Smollett up!
    HASHTAG: #ArrestJussieSmollett

      Does Trump make the white community look dumb?

      • Meme February 15, 2019

    You can’t charge them on serious charges if It was a hoax orchestrated by Jesse Smollett he paid them and if there’s no question he said they were white so false police charges and public outrage towards Jussie

  10. Jj February 15, 2019

    Watch he gone say I don’t know them

  11. Jj February 15, 2019

    I’m sure they have Nigerian accent so to say they say maga country idk

  12. eric February 15, 2019

    Hilarious! You can’t convince me these two giants fought thin bodied Jussie out of blind hatred and left no more than a one-inch abrasion. Jussie would’ve been folded in half with multiple bone fractures and an unrecognizable face if these two people truly set out to hurt him. The three of them together cooked up this “attack”.

    • Nick February 15, 2019

      Exactly! Jussie is a big ok liar! Sad all this to get attention!

  13. Led February 15, 2019

    I keep hearing multiple reports.
    I have also read that Chicago Police denied that there has been an arrest.

  14. Moti February 15, 2019

    Jesse, swallow the nut and bounce! DL dudes don’t like to be outed. Smh ??‍♂️

    • Huh February 15, 2019

      That article doesn’t state the source of this statement. That’s hearsay and admissible. They cited everything that was verified(Arie News, the police etc) and this statement wasn’t verified.

      • Caleb February 15, 2019

        You’re right.

  15. Honeybooboo February 15, 2019

    Those two must be his jerk off buddy…. BJ, CJ all nite long….

  16. Caleb February 15, 2019

    Now they’ve already been released.
