All charges dropped against Jussie Smollett | Loungtastic

CHICAGO — In a stunning reversal, prosecutors dropped all charges against actor Jussie Smollett Tuesday.

He had been charged with 16 counts of disorderly conduct after Chicago police say he staged a racial and homophobic attack in the city in January. Those charges will be now be wiped from Smollett's record.

After going over all the evidence, the Cook County Attorney's Office said they are voluntarily discontinuing the case: "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 appropriate resolution to this case."

Following a court appearance, Smollett and his attorney Patricia Brown Holmes addressed the media.

"We believe that it was the correct result in this case, we are very happy for this result, and we are very anxious for Jussie to get on with his career and his life," Holmes said.

"I've been truthful and consistent on every single level, since day one. I would not be my mother's son if I was capable of one drop of what I was accused of," Smollett said.

Smollett and his attorney believe the Chicago Police Department tried the case in the press, that it spiraled out of control, and that CPD jumped way ahead before the case could be properly investigated and tried in a court of law.

They were asked about Smollett's $10,000 bond, and why Smollett decided to forfeit it to the state, but they did not respond directly to that question.

Smollett was also asked about a $3,500 check, which was payment to brothers Abimbola "Abel" and Olabinjo "Ola" Osundairo. Chicago police said the check was given to the brothers to carry out the alleged attack, but Holmes maintains the check was for personal training and nutrition. One of the brother's was apparently helping Smollett get in shape.

Holmes said the brothers have admitted to the attack, but did not say if she felt they should be charged, or if Smollett will pursue that avenue.

Read the full text of Smollett's statement to the media below:

"First of all, I want to thank my family, my friends, the incredible people of Chicago and all over the country and the world who have prayed for me, for supporting me and showing me so much love.

No one will ever know how much that has meant to me and I will forever be grateful.

I want you to know that not for a moment was it in vain.

I've been truthful and consistent on every single level, since day one.

I would not be my mother's son if I was capable of one drop of what I was accused of.

This has been an incredibly difficult time. Honestly one of the worst of my entire life, but I am a man of faith, and I'm a man that has knowledge of my history and I would not bring my family, our lives, or the movement through the fire like this, I just wouldn't.

So I want to thank my legal counsel from the bottom of my heart.
And I would also like to thank the State of Illinois for attempting to do what's right.
Now I'd like nothing more than to just get back to work and move on with my life, but make no mistakes, I will always continue to fight for the justice and equality and betterment of marginalized people everywhere.

So again, thank you for all the support. Thank you for faith, and thank you to God. Bless you all.

Thank you very much."

Several Chicago Police Department sources have released information that the two brothers arrested and questioned in the Jussie Smollett case told detectives they were paid by the “Empire” actor to orchestrate an attack.

The sources say the brothers claimed they were paid by Smollett. The brothers’ attorney said both knew Smollett.

Police found a receipt for the rope found on Smollett’s neck in the brothers’ possession showing they had purchased it from an Ace Hardware in Chicago.

The two brothers were released by the police once they agreed to cooperate with police, after detectives said they would charge them with battery. Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi confirmed detectives have reached out to Smollett’s attorneys and expressed that they need to talk with Smollett.

Police are now investigating whether Smollett made up the story but police are still calling him a victim at this point.

Yes, it’s a fucking sex house. The 5-bedroom, 2.5-bath home just went on the market, and yes, the furniture — sex swing and all — is included in the $750,000 listing price.

“Total suburban beautiful home,” the listing's realtor Melissa Leonard told BuzzFeed News. “But the twist is it has this sex oasis in the basement.”

According to Leonard, the owner lived there with his family for years, until his wife died and he moved with his family to Philadelphia. In the meantime, he set up the house as an Airbnb to rent out over the last few months.

The Airbnb listing is titled “Maison XS - Just Be You” and has photos of the “underground adult room” with moody lighting. The Airbnb rents for $750 per night (yes, there is also a $250 cleaning fee, which seems exceedingly reasonable).

Maple Glen, where the home is located, is a sleepy suburb of Philadelphia with good schools and fewer than 10,000 residents. The sex house is located on a private street with just two other neighbors. Leonard is not sure what the neighbors think of the sex house, or if they know at all.

The home listing went viral on social media within hours of showing up on real estate site Redfin. Leonard is delighted by the attention and hoping for a buyer who sees a unique opportunity. "The big question I get from other realtors is, 'How did you keep a straight face?'" she said.


The mystery of how the neighbors feel has been resolved. In an interview with Slate, realtor Melissa Leonard was interrupted by an angry neighbor. Slate's Dan Kois, on the other end of the phone, overheard this: sex house listing
