Abel and his brother were arrested but later let go. The police subsequently arrested Smollett but the prosecutor eventually dropped all charged. Chicago PD is currently suing Smollett for costs incurred during the investigation.
Hopefully this beatdown wasn’t staged too.
One of the Nigerian brothers that “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett allegedly paid to fake a racist homophobic attack on him has won the Chicago Golden Gloves amateur boxing tournament.
Abimbola “Abel” Osundairo, who allegedly took $3,500 from Smollett to help stage the Jan. 29 incident, took home the “senior novice division” title Friday night following a technical knockout in the first round, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The division is for less-experienced boxers between 21 and 35 who weigh 178 pounds or less.
