Key Piece of Evidence in Jussie Smollett Case Discredited

One of the key pieces of evidence in the Jussie Smollett case has been discredited.

Chicago police claim the Empire star paid the Osundairo brothers $3500 to stage his attack, but now the duo have confirmed that the money was for a fitness program.

Their attorney, Gloria Schmidt, went on GMA today (Monday) and said the check was payment for a training and nutrition program to get Jussie in shape for a music video shoot -- just as indicated in the memo.

Last week, Jussie was indicted on 16 felony counts, one for each lie he supposedly told cops.
