Jussie Smollett received the letter and white powder on January 21, 2019. The note was scrawled with words “You will die black F*g.” and also a figure of a man with a gun pointed on his head. Later, the white substance was determined to be Aspirin.
After one week the letter was received, Jussie claimed that some two men attacked him. But later, police suspected that Jussie was faking the attack. The accused two brothers Ola and Abel Osundairo told Chicago police that Jussie Smollett created the threatening letter and they were hired to perform the attack. Jussie will probably end up facing prison time if he lied about the attack.
Back in 2015, Jussie came out as gay and he is in an alleged relationship with Tawan Davis.
