A Grand Jury Is Set to Hear the Jussie Smollett Case.

Cops have now reportedly told TMZ that Smollett’s attack was staged.

“Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Abel and Ola Osundairo told cops they got in a car with Jussie and scouted a location, settling on the one right outside the actor’s apartment,” TMZ reported Monday. “The brothers said Jussie chose the spot because he believed a camera would have captured the action.”

Meanwhile, a grand jury is set to hear Smollett’s case; however, it may be delayed “for several days.” The two brothers are scheduled to testify.

He added that being famous didn’t make things any easier.

“Even if you got money, it ain’t easy. It ain’t no favoritism, and I respect it, I honestly respect it. It would be kind of messed up if they treated rich immigrants better than poor immigrants, I think,” he said.
