Jussie Smollett’s attorneys Todd S. Pugh and Victor P. Henderson have stated that Smollett would not be meeting with Chicago Police today despite reports that they were interested in doing so. This meeting is expected after resports this week came out that Chicago Police believed he had paid the two Nigerian brothers Olabinjo Osundairo and Abimbola Osundairo, that were arrested last week $3,500 brothers to carry out the attack, rehearsed it, had them purchase rope from Ace Hardware, red hats and promised another $500 upon their return from Nigeria.

“There are no plans for Jussie Smollett to meet with Chicago police today. Any news reports suggesting otherwise are inaccurate,” an e-mailed statement from public relations consultant Anne Kavanagh reads. “Smollett’s attorneys will keep an active dialogue going with Chicago police on his behalf. We have no further comment today.”

This statement from Kavanagh (which ironically is similar to the last name of the new Supreme Court Justice pick of the President Smollett doesn’t like), comes in contrast to his new attorney Todd S. Pugh who just yesterday said he expected for Smollett “to [be] back online tomorrow with the investigators.” Of course that meeting was said to be based on Smollett’s “scheduling availability.” If we could give one piece of advice to Jussie Smollett, it would be that if he would like to stay out of prison, it would be a good idea that he cooperate with police and do so as quickly as possible. Obstruction of justice is a felony in Chicago as well not to mention the obvious falsifying a police report.
