If you thought the drama with Jussie Smollett was over, guess again because new evidence sheds even more unflattering light on the actor.
Following a judge’s decision to have the case files of the actor (which were initially sealed), disseminated to the public, there have been about 70 hours of video released to the public.
The one that has stood out most is one in which police officers responded to a 911 call and came to Smollett’s apartment where they found the actor still with the noose around his neck.
The officer who was recording through his body cam footage then asked “Do you want to take it off or anything?”
Smollett answered in the affirmative and pulled off the noose.
According to Officer Anthony Spicuzza,who acts as the Chicago police spokesman, the video files released are from police body cams, security, city, traffic and crime cameras.
In a separate incident, it seems that from the texts also released to the public, Jussie Smollett might also have been trying to ‘get it on’ with one of his accomplices, Abel Osundairo.
In a series of text messages, it seemed that Jussie Smollett was offering to get Abel to consent to a Non-sexual massage from a male masseuse to which Abel said no.
You can read the texts below
The texts show Jussie stating that the person providing the massage was male and once Abel said no, he then goes to say it was a woman which is quite weird.
Perhaps Jussie Smollett was checking to see if perhaps Abel was interested in something before trying to play it off as jokes.
There were also other texts released including ones that insinuate that Abel was getting drugs for Jussie, something that could land him into further trouble.
What does this mean for the actor?
Well, it’s not looking good because as things stand, he can be prosecuted again and with all this evidence flying around, his chances of getting off without any repercussions look pretty slim.
