After all charges of staging a hate crime and lying to police were dropped against Jussie Smollett, a judge ordered the actor’s court case to be unsealed, and 2,000 pages of documents, including emails, text messages, police reports and court records, were released. Emails showed that Smollett tried to buy drugs from the Nigerian brothers who have confessed their role in the hate hoax crime. Smollett was sued by the Chicago police for $130,000, hoping to recoup overtime costs related to their weeks-long investigation. Smollett didn’t pay and with fines and penalties could now be on the hook for nearly $400,000.
The release of thousands of pages of court records in the Chicago case
complicate the embattled ‘Empire’ actor’s hopes to return to Hollywood.
Late last week, thousands of pages of documents in the Jussie
Smollett case, including emails, text messages, police reports and court
records, were released.
While their release has laid bare some of the inner workings of the
Chicago District Attorney’s office, including its fraught relationship
with the city’s police department, the documents have raised more
questions than they’ve answered about the spectacle surrounding the Empire actor.
As of early May, Empire writers were speaking openly about
the possibility of Smollett’s return to the show. And the actor appeared
eager to continue working after his arrest and the subsequent dropping
of charges, saying in a statement that he “appreciated” 20th Century
Fox’s decision to extend his contract and keep his character Jamal’s
future “open” for the upcoming sixth season.
Now that’s more in doubt than ever. While Smollett, through his
attorneys, has lauded the release of the entire investigative case file,
nothing in the documents would seem to improve Smollett’s chances of
rehabilitating his career in Hollywood or to repair his shattered public
image. Instead, the picture that emerges serves to reinforce
allegations of a man buying cocaine and ecstasy while plotting a fake
hate crime against himself.
A Chicago grand jury indicted Smollett in February with 16 felony
counts of disorderly conduct after a police investigation found that the
actor had lied about being the victim of a hate crime in January,
during which he claimed he was physically assaulted by two men wearing
MAGA hats who shouted racial and homophobic slurs, poured bleach on him
and hung a noose around his neck. A lengthy police investigation
concluded Smollett had paid the two brothers he sporadically employed as
his physical trainers, Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo, $3,500 to help
stage the attack because he was unhappy about his salary on Empire.
After the indictment, the DA’s office unexpectedly dropped all the
charges, infuriating Chicago Superintendent of Police Eddie T. Johnson
and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, who denounced the DA’s decision,
calling it a “whitewash” of justice.
Whereas Smollett had garnered a loud and vocal base of support after
the initial charges against him were dropped, those voices had started
to dim even before the latest dumps, as the murkiness around his story
continued to deepen. The document release did little to revive what
support he did have. The writers on Empire have remained quiet.
A @standwithjussie handle and hashtag, which calls for fans to “sign
the petition to bring him back for the next season of empire” had just
seven followers, two likes and little-to-no momentum. Calls to Hilary
Rosen, who represents Smollett at the PR firm SKDKnickerborker, which
has been mounting a campaign to resuscitate the actor’s public image,
went unanswered, and the voicemail was full.
The first batch of documents, including the police case file, was
unsealed by a judge after FOIA requests by multiple media outlets,
including The Hollywood Reporter. The DA’s office released several hundred pages of text messages, emails and court documents.
Among other revelations, the documents provide new details about
Smollett’s attempts to procure drugs from Abimbola and Olabinjo
Osundairo, the two brothers who helped him stage and carry out the hoax
“N***a you still got a molly connect,” Smollett texted to one of the
brothers in September, a few months before the alleged hoax. “Hahahaha…
Imma need a good fo pills Haha.”
Police files indicate that Smollett paid the brothers repeatedly via
Venmo and Paypal for ecstasy, cocaine and marijuana in February, in the
days leading up to the staged attack.
They also reveal a more detailed portrait of the communications
between the three men to plan and carry out the hoax. Smollett asked the
brothers to meet “face to face” to discuss plans. Police records
indicate these details were “corroborated on video and by GPS data.”
