he’s so handsome too.
the f-bi has been on the trail of this case since tonight’s news.
i’ve been getting a ton of dms and emails with small developments.
a vix-bi we all love sent me jussie’s official statement.
this is what “variety” posted through his attorneys,
victor p. henderson and todd s. pugh…
“As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with. He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack. Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying.
“One of these purported suspects was Jussie’s personal trainer who he hired to ready him physically for a music video. It is impossible to believe that this person could have played a role in the crime against Jussie or would falsely claim Jussie’s complicity.
“Jussie and his attorneys anticipate being further updated by the Chicago Police Department on the status of the investigation and will continue to cooperate. At the present time, Jussie and his attorneys have no inclination to respond to ‘unnamed’ sources inside of the investigation, but will continue discussions through official channels.”
good to know he wasn’t allegedly smashin the mandingo wolf brothers.
i have a question for the foxhole.
something i thought about earlier:
Did he hire the criminal lawyers in case he had to sue the two brothers?
it could be a possibility.
as far as his statement,
the damage at this point is too severe.
he’ll need a major plot twist to shift the court of public opinion.
what that’ll be is anyone’s guess.
let’s hope for the “alien abduction that caused memory loss” angle.
lowkey: the trump mouthpieces are already loving this shit…
i might need that alien abuction angle asap.
