The two brothers who were accused of staging a hate crime attack against Jussie Smollett are suing the actor’s legal representatives accusing them of defamation. Olabinjo Osundairo and Abimbola Osundairo have launched legal action against Smollett’s lawyers, Mark Geragos and Tina Glandian, because they made public statements about the events of January 22, and of course, their version of the events of that day radically differs from that one that the brothers insist on. The Osundairo brothers testified before a grand jury in February, claiming that Smollett paid them $3,500 to fake the homophobic and racist attack, and the fact that Smollett’s lawyers kept insisting on his innocence caused them “irreparable financial damage” and “emotional stress” as a result of being accused of attacking Smollett, even after Chicago police determined Smollett had staged the ordeal. n a statement, Smollett’s lawyers Geragos and Glandian described the lawsuit as ridiculous comic-driven parody and a nonsense. “While we know this ridiculous lawsuit will soon be dismissed because it lacks any legal footing, we look forward to exposing the fraud the Osundairo brothers and their attorneys have committed on the public,” they wrote
