Jussie Smollett case: brothers who helped stage attack sue actor's attorney

Today 07:00 GMT

Two brothers who say they helped Jussie Smollett stage a racist and homophobic attack against himself filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against the Empire actor’s attorneys, alleging that they repeatedly asserted publicly that the brothers carried out a real, bigoted attack on Smollett despite knowing that was not true.

The suit contends that even after police and prosecutors alleged that the 29 January attack in Chicago was staged and after all charges were dropped, controversially, against Smollett, Geragos and his firm continued to say publicly in widely reported statements that the brothers “led a criminally homophobic, racist and violent attack against Mr Smollett”, even though they knew that was not the case. The lawsuit says that the lawyers’ repeated statements that Smollett told the truth all along and that the brothers were lying caused them “significant emotional distress”, made them feel unsafe and alienated them from the local community.
