Jussie Smollett Suspect Posed Down to ‘Empire’ Star’s Music in Bodybuilding Video

One of the men currently being questioned as a potential suspect in the alleged attack on Jussie Smollett wasn’t just an acquaintance of the “Empire” star, he was apparently a big fan of Smollett’s music.

Days before the incident went down in Chicago, Abimbola “Abel” Osundairo shared a video of himself posing down to Smollett’s hit song, “Ha Ha (I Love You).” Wearing only his underwear, Abel flexed and showed off his jacked physique.

The video was posted on January 9 in Chicago, 19 days before the incident went down with Smollett.

The 29-year-old man, originally from Nigeria, is a frequent competitor in the International Natural Bodybuilding Association, as well as a personal trainer. As we reported, Abel and his brother, Ola, are currently being interrogated by Chicago Police in connection with the alleged attack on Smollett.

The attorney for the Nigerian brothers says they know Smollett, and work out with him at their gym, but deny any involvement in the alleged attack.

When Ola and Abel’s apartment was raided, cops found bleach and a script from the TV show, “Empire.” Neither brother has been charged with a crime as of yet.
