Now Osundairo Brothers Are Suing Jussie Smollett’s Attorneys
Anddd They’re Back Again
Abel and Ola are back at it again. The brothers who allegedly faked attacked Jussie Smollett are now suing the actor’s lawyers, Mark Geragos and Tina Glandian, for defamation. They are claiming the attorneys made false accusations to the media. Apparently they tried to make it appear the Osundairo brothers were the culprits in a real, homophobic and racist attack.
The case has just been filed in Chicago federal court. The duo claimed Jussie “used his clout as a wealthy actor to influence [the brothers] who were in a subordinate relationship to him and were aspiring to ‘make it.'”
Furthermore the suit says things changed when Tina Glandian went on ‘GMA,’ “Today” and the Reasonable Doubt podcast. After the charges against Jussie were dismissed, the lies began. According to the brothers, she told numerous lies. Including the brothers wore whiteface during the attack and the brothers were involved in an illegal Nigerian steroid trafficking ring.
The lawsuit also claims Glandian falsely claimed one of the brothers “engaged in fornication with Mr. Smollett.”
When it comes to Geragos, the suit claims he “repeatedly indicated that plaintiffs conspired to criminally attack Mr. Smollett, and by doing so, implied plaintiffs committed perjury” to the Grand Jury and conspired to make false statements to the Chicago PD.
The suit goes even further by saying the brothers never knew Jussie would go to the cops. Basically was unaware he was staging the “attack” for social media.
The fitness duo say as a result of the alleged defamation they suffered extreme emotional distress, humiliation, anxiety. On the business side; damages to their reputation, and damages to current and prospective business relations.
We’ve reported, Ola and Abel careers are struggling. Both as actors and personal trainers, in the wake of the scandal.
