Jussie Smollett has been accused and arrested for staging his own attack and making false accusations following reports that he paid two Nigerian bothers to stage an attack on him in order to promote his career.
However, according to TMZ, a check addressed to the brothers allegedly reveals payment for a fitness exercise to help him lose 20 pounds having weighed 192 pounds at the time.
The description on the check he wrote to one of the Osundairo brothers Abel, reportedly shows payment for “5-week Nutrition/Workout program Don’t Go.”
The actor needed to lose that amount of weight to feature shirtless in the music video of a song titled ‘Don’t go’.
Jussie Smollett reportedly feels misunderstood following claims that he staged a hostile attack and filed a police report bordering on hate crime.
