Jussie Smollett is currently under trial for falsely reporting a crime to the police, with six counts of disorderly conduct. As the “Empire” actor took to the stand, he spoke in his own defense and testified about many facets of his life, including his sexual relationship with the Osundairo brothers.

Smollett started off by talking about his role on Empire and said that he made $25K-$35K per episode on the show’s first season. He also talked about how he met Abel, and how their relationship grew.

The Empire star claimed to have met Abel at a gay club and then later went to a Chicago bathhouse. They did drugs together at the bathhouse, such as cocaine and marijuana. They visited the bathhouse in another visit, where Jussie claimed they masturbated together.

The trial has entered its second week. The Osundairo brothers testified in the first week. Smollett has maintained that they attacked him. However, the brothers claim that he staged the attack alongside them so that they could receive more publicity.

Ola Osundairo handled the claim that Jussie made against him about being homophobic. Howeverm Osundairo revealed a picture of him passing condoms to participants of a Pride Parade.
