Could Jussie Smollett and his Nigerian 'attacker' Abel Osundairo be in a s.e.x.u.a.l relationship?

Jussie Smollett had a sexual relationship with one of the Nigerian brothers who allegedly orchestrated his 'hoax' attack, a new source claims.

The anonymous insider told Page Six Wednesday that the Empire star, 37, and his purported 'attacker' Abel Osundairo also visited an upscale Chicago bathhouse together on multiple occasions.

'They used to party together and he [Smollet] had a sexual relationship with [Osundairo]. They went to this affluent Chicago bathhouse multiple times and they had to show ID. It's known as a bathhouse where a lot of affluent black gay men hang out,' the source stated.

The insider further claimed that there is likely to be records of the pair's visits to the establishment, and says they could be seized as part of Smollet's upcoming trial on felony disorder conduct charges.

Smollet says he was attacked by two masked men in Chicago back in January 2019. He claims they poured bleach on him, tied a noose around his neck and shouted racist and homophobic slurs.

An investigation later led police to Abel Osundairo and his brother, Ola, who allege that Smollet paid them $3,500 to stage the attack in a bid to boost his public profile.

Ola Osundairo is a personal trainer who appeared in an episode of Empire. Smollet and Ola reportedly became friendly and traded 'workout tips' via text message.

Smollet was subsequently charged with lying to police before the case was later dropped. However, Smollet was indicted again in February of this year following an investigation by a special prosecutor.
