(AllHipHop News) Some truly shocking allegations are coming forward in the alleged assault against "Empire" actor, Jussie Smollett.
Two Nigerian men who were originally considered suspects in what had been labeled a homophobic, racist attack in Chicago, are now coming clean.
The brothers, Ola and Abel Usondairo claim they were paid by the 36-year-old actor to stage the entire crime.
Jussie claimed he was attacked by racist white pro-Trump supporters, who supposedly poured a chemical substance over him and tied a noose around his neck while yelling racist and homophobic slurs.
Thanks to the Chicago Police Department's police work, detectives were able to identify two men seen in a grainy video as Ola and Abel.
They were also able to confirm the men bought the rope that was used in the staged attack.
The cops say both men knew Jussie because they were extra's on the set of "Empire."
According to reports, Jussie has already hired Michael Monico, who represents President Donald Trump's disgraced attorney Micahel Cohen.
If it is confirmed that Jussie orchestrated the whole attack, he will be facing criminal charges, as well as serious outrage back in Chicago.
Andre Smith, who is a politician in the city said Jussie could be facing a huge fine too.
“We need to know how many man-hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars of the taxpayer’s money have been spent on arresting the two alleged perpetrators. Yet no one has been arrested in the baby boy shooting,” Andre Smith said in a press release.
Smith was referring to the murder of a one-year-old, who was shot in what police believe was a targeted gang-related slaying.
