TMZ reports that Howard suspected Jussie was lying about his supposed assault from the get-go and confronted him about it on set shortly after he went public with the alleged tall tale.
Tensions between Terrence and Jussie boiled over after the 2 Nigerian brothers who allegedly helped Jussie stage the attack, Abel and Ola Osundario, were detained by police… we’re told Terrence confronted Jussie once again, screaming at him to come clean.
Sources add that Terrence refused to give the disgraced actor an audience when he addressed the show’s cast and crew on Thursday despite the fact that he declared support for him on social media around the same time.
Smollett’s future on the series is now uncertain.
