The city of Chicago are suing him.

Under a city ordinance, the city is entitled to recoup three times its total damages, or about $390,000. The city will also seek unspecified attorneys' fees and costs, as well as a $1,000 fine for each false statement to the police.

Well this is the gift that just keeps on giving.




The Osundairo brothers are suing Jussie's lawyer for defamation! Let's see what the Obama's can pull out of their hat this time.

The documents from this whole investigation will be unsealed on June 3rd. Jussie and his lawyers wanted them to stay sealed to protect his privacy but the judge said in his ruling:
“Smollett voluntarily appeared on national television speaking about the incident in detail. “After the March 26 dismissal, he voluntarily stood in front of cameras from numerous news organizations in the courthouse lobby and spoke about the case. These are not the actions of a person seeking to maintain his privacy or simply be let alone.”


Well done Judge Steven Watkins.

Some of the documents have been released, some details from The Hollywood Reporter. Jussie Smollett is legit crazy.



"The first batch of documents, including the police case file, was unsealed by a judge after FOIA requests by multiple media outlets, including The Hollywood Reporter. The DA’s office released several hundred pages of text messages, emails and court documents.
Among other revelations, the documents provide new details about Smollett’s attempts to procure drugs from Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo, the two brothers who helped him stage and carry out the hoax hate crime.
“N***a you still got a molly connect,” Smollett texted to one of the brothers in September, a few months before the alleged hoax. “Hahahaha… Imma need a good fo pills Haha.”
Police files indicate that Smollett paid the brothers repeatedly via Venmo and Paypal for ecstasy, cocaine and marijuana in February, in the days leading up to the staged attack.
They also reveal a more detailed portrait of the communications between the three men to plan and carry out the hoax. Smollett asked the brothers to meet “face to face” to discuss plans. Police records indicate these details were “corroborated on video and by GPS data.”
According to redacted police records, Smollett had a “planning meeting” with the two brothers, during which they set the time and details of the attack. Olabinjo Osundairo later told police he deliberately tried not to harm Smollett during the purported attack, only going so far as to rub his knuckles into the actors face to make it look bruised.
Smollett allegedly feared that the other brother, Abimbola, might hurt him and asked him not to participate in the staged beating. According to one released document, one brother was afraid to escalate the confrontation for fear of being shot by police, further strengthening the allegation that Smollett lied."

More details have been released about this.



Bodycam footage from 2 police officers the morning after the "attack". Jussie is still wearing the noose several hours after he claimed it was forced on him.






And video of the Osundairo brothers in a taxi on the way to commit the "crime". They got a taxi wearing hazmat suits which I got a good chuckle from.

The lead investigators name, Dan.k Webb, sounds like an even dodgier version of the dark web.

Not sickened enough by the darkest depths of the dark web? Well try the dank web.
