Jussie Smollet: Neighbor says he doubts the actor was attacked

Jussie Smollet: Neighbor says he doubts the actor was attacked

However, the story given by Jussie Smollet is seen as untrue to one of his neighbors, Agin Muhammad , who lives in the same high-rise as him.

According to the neighbor, he doesn’t believe the attack happened the way Jussie said it did.

“I don’t believe it happened the way he said it did.

“I’ve been in this neighborhood five years. I don’t believe it, not around here…Half the people are gay and the other half are black.”

The police say they have no reason to doubt the actor’s story but still haven’t gotten access to his phone.

Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said:

“We have no reason to doubt the statements, but for a criminal investigation, we need to independently confirm the phone records.”

He continued:

“We offered to take the phone to download the data and he expressed he couldn’t be without his phone for several hours.”



  1. For the neighbor to say the beating was not as Jussie said is an evidence that the guy knows about the beating. Attacking somebody is not something to be prove of so Jussie couldn’t have made up the story

  2. What will he be doing in d hospital bed if he is not attacked? Let the police carry out their investigations properly

  3. I think it is very correct for the police to collect his phone to be able to complete their investigations

  4. It’s utter BS and was a GRINDR date gone wrong according to Chi-town PD. He’s pulled publicity stunts like this in the past – look up: Jussie, threesome, and ‘The Sargent and The Shrink.’ I hope they jail him for this false report… his career is OVER thankfully.
