This story keeps getting stranger by the minute.

It seems like daily if not hourly there is a new development in the story surrounding the attack on Jussie Smollett. As of this week, social media is divided due to the lack of evidence in his claims. Most recently two men were arrested for the attack who happen to work on the set of Empire with Smollett. The actor had originally claimed his attackers were white and shouted racial slurs at him. The two brothers that were taken into custody are Nigerian and now the pieces to the puzzle just don’t seem to fit.

Brothers Ola and Abel Osundairo, told Chicago PD that Jussie paid to take part in the “staged” attack. The men have since been released and have been cooperating. They are set to meet with police again soon to go over their account of the situation in more detail. A Chicago reporter was able to track down a surveillance tape that show the men buying supplies at a convenience store the day before the attack. Take a look at Charlie De Mar’s tweet:

LATER, he continued to Tweet more information. And now, TMZ reports that the Empire actor is now officially considered a suspect in the case for filing a false police report. The evidence is being presented to the Cook County grand jury. Jussie has maintained his innocence and FOX also released a statement refuting claims that Jussie’s character was being cut from the show. Take a look at the rest of the tweets below:
