Jussie Smollett‘s lawyer offered a new theory as to why the actor was out on the streets of Chicago at 2:00 AM on the night of the alleged attack.
Tina Glandian sat down with Savannah Guthrie for an interview that aired this morning on “Today.” During the interview, Glandian explained that Smollett had been in contact with the Osundairo brothers about a training session for that night but his flight was delayed so they pushed it back a day.
Glandian claims the brothers told him to make sure he ate properly, specifically saying he should eat four eggs at breakfast. But she says Smollett told the brothers he didn’t have eggs, so he’d have to run out to get them.
According to Glandian, that’s how the brothers knew where he’d be.
“He at this point again has been victimized much more by what’s happened afterwards than what happened that night.”
