Jussie Smollett’s PR team emailed a statement to media outlets in response to the city of Chicago’s recent court filing in a lawsuit seeking more than $130,000 for reimbursement of investigative costs, according to Love B. Scott.
“Regardless of what is said by the city, every iota of information Jussie Smollett has stated has been fully corroborated by the police documents,” the statement said.
“Not documents from his PR or legal team but documents generated by the very people who continuously claim it as fact that he is guilty,” the statement continued. “But this requires people to look at the actual evidence which nobody seems to want to do.”
The statement didn’t say what evidence allegedly backs Jussie’s claim that masked men yelled racist and homophobic insults while pouring bleach on him, beating him, and tying a noose around his neck in sub-zero temperatures.
Meanwhile, the city says GPS data, video and other evidence prove Jussie paid men to fake the attack.
