*Abel and Ola Osundario all of a sudden are not talking. Nope, they now have nothing to say about the alleged fake homophobic “attack” they supposedly helped stage against Jussie Smollett that he allegedly paid them to do.
Now that they’ve decided to go silent, their attorney has dropped them. The lawyer, Gloria Schmidt, says she urged the brothers to make a public statement, standing by their claim Jussie faked the “attack.” They refused, and Schmidt said bye bye, go find another legal rep.
When you think about it, the situation is not really adding up. Why are they staying silent at this point ’cause Smollett basically pointed the finger back at them, saying he never lied and the “attack” was real? That is the question. On the other hand, Chicago police, prosecutors and even the 2 brothers say they were the ones in the street with Jussie … but everyone other than the actor says it was a hoax.
As TMZ writes, it’s unclear if Jussie still has a relationship with Abel and Ola Osundario. Both had bit parts on “Empire” and Jussie had hired them both to train him. They had spent a significant amount of time together before the incident. Jussie cut a $3,500 check to the brothers for the training, although Schmidt has said part of that money was for the “attack.”
This is one more reason this whole Jussie Smollett situation is beyond confusing. We, like most folks, don’t know what to believe. This leaves everybody involved entangled in a messy web that they might not ever be able to get out of, especially in the court of public opinion.
