According to the ‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett’s brother, the attack Jussie suffered has scarred him deeply, leaving him with negative aftereffects.
JoJo Smollett wrote an op-ed piece for BET titled ‘What If Jussie Is Telling The Truth’ where he described the attack, and how it has impacted the actor and their family.
Within less than three months, his life has been turned upside down as my family and I have witnessed him endure unrelenting attacks to his character and reputation. Like so many others, this entire process quickly devolved from a focus on him as a victim of assault, to him being falsely accused and held responsible for a crime that was perpetrated against him. To define this experience as unjust would be an understatement. – JOJO SMOLLETT
Not only did Smollett run the legalities of the case, he gave great detail on the relationship between Jussie, and the two Nigerian men who were the alleged assaulters.
“I have literally seen him violently awakening from night terrors, following the assault. Some of my siblings, as well as Jussie’s partner and closest friends have seen similar things.” – JOJO SMOLLETT
