  • Chicago Police released 69 hours of video related to Jussie Smollett's alleged hate crime case on Monday 
  • The trove of never-before-seen footage includes police bodycam video of officers finding Smollett with a noose around his neck
  • In that clip he says that he kept the noose on because he wanted police 'to see it' 
  • Another shows the Osundairo brothers in a taxi on their way to meet Smollett on the night of the attack wearing hooded jackets and a ski mask at 1.22am
  • A third clip shows the Osundairo brothers running on South Water Street at 2.01am, a minute after the alleged attack 
  • A fourth video shows cops arresting the Osundairo brothers on February 14 
  • The Empire actor had claimed that he was attacked by two men who launched racial and homophobic slurs at him and threw a noose on him on January 29
  • In a text sent on January 29 at 5pm - the day of the attack - Abel texted Smollett saying: 'Bruh say it ain't true. I'm praying for speedy recovery. Sh*t is wild' 
  • Police later determined that he staged the attack and charged him with filing a false police report
  • Those charges were subsequently dropped by Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, sparking outrage and launching an investigation into her decision 
  • The release of the tapes comes days after a judge decided to appoint a special prosecutor to look into the Cook County prosecutor Kim Foxx work in the case 
Video footage released Monday shows the moment three officers walk into an apartment where Smollett stands (in white) with a noose around his neck while responding to a 911 call about a hate crime on January 29. Smollett's creative director who let the cops into the apartment pictured right 
An officer is heard saying 'Want to take it off?' and the actor obliges. 'Yeah I do. I just wanted you to see. There’s bleach on me. They poured bleach on me,' Smollett says as he removes the noose

Smollett's face is blurred but he's seen holding the long white rope nose around his neck

Smollett came under scrutiny for the alleged attack on January 29 around 2am after no surveillance video footage of the incident was found.

Police later determined that he staged the attack and charged him with filing a false police report. Those charges were then later dropped by Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx.   

Smollett still maintains he never fabricated the attack. 

Moment Osundairo brothers meet Jussie Smollett on night of attack

One video included in Monday's release shows the Osundairo brothers, 25 and 27,  in a taxi on their way to meet Smollett on January 29, wearing hooded jackets and covering their faces. One is seen wearing a ski mask. 

Their car ride took place at 1.22am and the alleged attack took place at 2am.  

In that clip the two men are seen riding in silence until one tells the driver to keep the change after paying the $9.25 fare in cash.

They noticeably try to conceal their faces from the dashcam and exit without incident. They didn't appear to be carrying any items with them in the vehicle. 

The brothers were dropped off near South Water Street where they are believed to have met up with the Empire actor.

They were caught running on foot on South Water Street, the same street the taxi had dropped them off at just 40 minutes prior

A third surveillance video taken on January 29 at 2.01am allegedly shows the Osundairo brothers running outside on South Water Street near the attack site.

The two are seen sprinting about a minute after the alleged attack took place. 

The footage comes from the inside of a building on the street. The footage was captured about 40 minutes after the taxi let them out on South Water Street.

A fourth video released Monday shows the moment cops arrest the Osundairo brothers on February 14 on the tarmac at the Chicago O'Hare international airport after returning from a trip to Nigeria. 

During the arrest the two appear to be silent and cooperate with officers as they're escorted to a squad car and put their luggage inside. 

The two were initially charged with battery and then released without charge after confessing to their role in the hoax. 

In a breakthrough in the case on February 16 the brothers told detectives that Smollett paid them to participate in the attack and they purchased the rope used for Smollett's noose at the Crafty Beaver hardware store. When police raided their home they found ropes, masks and bleach matching those described in the attack. 

Both spent the days immediately after their release holed up with police minders at a hotel inside the Chicago Loop to prevent them contacting or being contacted by Smollett. 

The brothers have since filed a federal defamation lawsuit against Smollett's attorneys, claiming that they blamed the brothers for the attack.

El-Bull  BUTCH QUEEN!  I see you're still sitting in that fluffy pink robe and slippers with pink curlers in your hair. this will be the last time I entertain your childish behavior.  It was fun but I must go continue making my money and living my very best life. But before I go, i advise you to keep your head up and keep striving boo. Eventually you'll find that special someone, a light to your darkness, to occupy your wasted time and put a smile on that face. When you do, your days will be occupied so much to the point that you can let that FREAK FLAG FLY. Now run off and continue playing with yourself clown. LMAO

marcella edmond you just proved my point about you-----do us all a favor and go crawl back up into the rotten hole you crawled out of and abort yourself and your son

Comment by Marcella Edmmond on March 13, 2019 at 11:17am

El-Bull,  girlfriend. you are comical to me, a clown.  You are still a bitter, lonely, old lady. LOL! Unlike yourself, I am very comfortable and happy with ALL OF THE MEN in my life. I have a wonderful son that would make any mother proud and I have an exceptional, loving, and adoring husband who is the epitome of greatness.  I support my men in what ever they want and need to be successful black men in this world. my son who is in his 3rd year of college, and my husband who earns a six figure salary seem to be doing just fine to me. I don't care that you are gay and I don't care about your outlook on life it's apparent that you are a miserable black man. If you were really confident in your manhood and sexuality, you wouldn't feel the need to insult, belittle, or berate ANY OTHER HUMAN BEING. You don't bother me because I am satisfied with my life and the lives of those i love.I find it hard to believe that you are truly happy with yourself and how you live your life. But that's neither here nor there.  You work on yourself. Maybe staying off this blog may help because you really have nothing important or positive to add and your comments are useless.  Ok sweetie, you have a beautifully blessed day and remember to be TRUE TO WHO AND WHAT YOU REALLY ARE. smooches!!!!

Comment by El-Bull on March 11, 2019 at 7:35pm

marcella edmond---that's a typical weak reply from a c.un.t. like you. Bytches like you always think that by coming after a man's sexuality, that it diminishes him.  Well C.U.N.T I'm secure in my manhood unlike your undercover boyfriend /husband if you have one-----I FEEL SORRY FOR ANY MALE CHILDREN YOU MAY HAVE AS I AM SURE THEY ARE ALREADY EMASCULATED TO THE PINT THEY ARE WEARING DRESSES.

if this is true that sentence is way too harsh!!!!! that man lied. Ok he was wrong, The punishment is too harsh
Comment by Natalie on March 10, 2019 at 12:16am

Hmmmm...I wonder if he is going to try and plead insanity and pay off an underpaid psychiatrist to say he has been getting treated for years unbeknownst to anyone in his family OR say he is on prescription meds that can make you delusional as a side effect. I cannot wait for this trial to started, they failed to convict R Kelly in Chicago so the prosecutor in this case is going to make an example out of him.

48years for lying?when we have real criminals get off with 2-4 years like really?
Comment by Marcella Edmmond on February 24, 2019 at 11:49pm

El-Bull i never attacked you! And as for calling me out my name, like I said, you have a problem and you are lacking something.  You spend WAY TOO MUCH TIME ON HERE ATTACKING PEOPLE. My brother people like you make me smile. LOL. Why do you remind me of a old lonely,  bitter woman? LOL .You make me laugh every time you comment on anything or anyone. Simply comical to me. I question whether or not you are gay. Side eye. Wink. Wink. Lol!
