The brothers accused of attacking ‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett filed a defamation lawsuit against his attorneys Tuesday; saying the celebrity “directed every aspect” of the alleged hate-crime hoax.

“The brothers were initially arrested as suspects in the alleged attack in January on Smollett, only to be released later. They make the claim in a lawsuit against two of Smollett’s defense attorneys, Mark Geragos and Tina Glandian, who continued to say in media appearances that the brothers engaged in the attack. The brothers are suing under claims of defamation and false light,” reports the Chicago Sun Times.

The Osundairo brothers’ lawsuit claims Smollett “directed every aspect of the attack, including the location and the noose.”

Chicago prosecutors stunned the nation weeks ago when they abruptly dropped all charges against Smollett; sparking outrage from the Chicago Police Department who claim the actor staged the attack because he was dissatisfied with this salary.
