In His Testimony Before Jury Convicted Him Jussie Smollett Testified How He Used Drugs & Masturbated With His Alleged Attacker

Ex-Empire cast member Jussie Smollett took the stand Monday in his own defence in the hate-crime case against him that has drawn national headlines.

Six counts of criminal disorderly conduct were filed against the 39-year-old in court and in which now he has been found guilty of 5.

But the now disgraced star was adamant to the end. Smollett testified that “there was no hoax,” he said.

During a routine trip through a Chicago neighbourhood in January 2019, Smollett reported to police that he had been attacked because of his sexual orientation and race.

Alleged attackers yelled racial and homophobic abuse at Smollett before hitting him, noose-wrapping his neck with bleach around his neck, and assaulting him, according to Smollett.

There were questions raised about several aspects of his tale and he was charged in March 2019 on 16 disorderly conduct charges.

According to a Cook County statement released at the time, “After reviewing all of the facts and circumstances of the case, including Mr. Smollett’s volunteer service in the community and agreement to forfeit his bond to the City of Chicago, we believe this outcome is a just disposition and an appropriate resolution to this case.”

However, a special prosecutor “concluded that further prosecution of Jussie Smollett is ‘in the interest of justice,'” noting “the vast extent of Mr. Smollett’s fraudulent police reports,” in February 2020, Smollett was charged with disorderly conduct.

Last Monday, the trial of Smollett began, which has come to an end with the Jury finding guilty as charged in 5 of the 6 counts!

Key witnesses including brothers Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo, who testified last week that Smollett walked them through a “dry run” of the alleged hate crime before it occurred, were addressed by Smollett in his testimony.

As Abimbola told the New York Times, “He wanted me and my brother Ola to fight it out and then toss him to the ground and beat him up so we could go away,” he said.

A purported text communication from Smollett to Abimbola, which Abimbola claims led to the preparation of an assault, was also mentioned by Abimbola.

As we reported before, Smollett said that the text had referenced the acquisition of a herbal steroid from Nigeria, which is banned in the United States.

On the question of whether he had hired a guy for a fake hate crime, Smollett said, “Fully untrue, 100 per cent.”

There is no evidence that the $3,500 money paid by Smollett for a workout plan was intended to be used for a hate crime, according to Smollett’s testimony.

In court, Smollett referred to his long-running Empire character as “a celebrity, a pop singer, a beloved GQ anything.” “It was critical that I didn’t look bruised up,” says Black Cary Grant.

A “hate letter” was delivered to the Chicago studio where Empire was shooting, and Abimbola offered to act as Smollett’s personal protection.

It was barely seven days before the attack that Smollett says he got the letter.

Jesse Smollett said that he and Abimbola had used cocaine and masturbated, as evidenced by his testimony.

A Chicago bathhouse is where Smollett and Abimbola went to “use more drugs and, like, make out,” according to CNN’s investigation.

During a trip to the bathhouse, the two “made out a little bit, masturbated together,” he added.

When asked about the sexual tension between him and Smollett, Abimbola claimed that he was ignorant of it. Smollett said that Olabinjo “sort of freaked me off,” and that “every time we were near him, he didn’t talk to me.”

When Abimbola and I needed to leave, he made it appear as if we had to “slip off.”

Convicted Smollett faces a maximum sentence of three years in jail. Legal experts told the MM that such a conclusion is improbable because of his lack of criminal past and the fact that no one was badly harmed in the alleged incident.
