Recently, all criminal charges were dropped against Jussie Smollett in the alleged staged attack that took place, and now the two brothers who were implicated in the incident are saying they feel betrayed by the actor.
The Osundairo brothers’ lawyer—Gloria Schmidt spoke to CNN and said “I believe my clients were betrayed. You have to look at what kind of relationship they had with Mr. Smollett. He’s a celebrity. This is somebody who is in a position of power over my clients.” She also went on to say “We’ve seen a lot of stories in the news where celebrities think they might be above the law. It’s just not the case.”
The lawyer noted the brothers were remorseful for the role they played in the scenario.
