(Chicago, IL) — Former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett is taking the stand in his trial for allegedly staging a hate crime attack. Smollett said he had a sexual relationship with one of two Osundairo brothers who are key to the case. He added Abimbola Osundairo also sold him drugs. Smollett is accused of lying to police, but claims he’s a real victim of a real crime. Prosecutors called two brothers to the stand last week who worked as extras on the show “Empire” before Smollett was written off. They testified they were paid to carry out a fake attack in Chicago.
