Some tweets on Twitter praised Anthony's rendition, comparing it to the late Marvin Gaye's rendition when he performed the anthem during the 1983 NBA All-Star Game. Others...not so much. First, peep his performance below:


To compare, here's Marvin Gaye's performance from 30-years ago:

Mon, 18 Feb 2019 10:11:07 +0000 The Jussie Smollett Attack Saga - Suspects (Who Once Filed For Bankruptcy) Released & Allegedly Tell Police Jussie Paid Them To Stage Attack, Jussie Denies Claims & Lawyers Up

 photo JussieSmollettJussieSmollettPerformsTroubadourChffCu3EGJ2l_zpsc69ctpnf.jpg

The Jussie Smollett "alleged" attack saga has gotten messier than ever.  The latest inside.

UPDATE: Jussie's rep confirm he dropped Monico as his lawyer after a dispute about the statement that was released. Now he's reportedly hired two Chicago attorneys and a crisis manager who aided in the LaQuan McDonald case.


Just two weeks after Jussie Smollett took the stage in Hollywood days after his (now alleged) attack in Chicago, police and the public are doubting if the attack is even real due to new evidence.

While there were early rumblings that Jussie's story - him claiming he was attacked by two MAGA-shouting men after 2AM on the freezing streets of Chicago - didn't add up, police confirm new evidence has shifted the case.  And they want to talk to Jussie again - stat!

Less than a day after two Nigerian brothers were arrested as suspects in the case, they were released.  Minimal info has been released officially about why, but that quick of a release does NOT bode well for Jussie.

 photo Screen Shot 2019-02-18 at 5.08.07 AM_zpsvq7uikwt.png

The Blast confirmed Olabinjo “Ola” Osundairo and Abimbola “Abel” Osundairo were taken in as suspects after they arrived back in Chicago from a recent trip (they left the day of the attack) to Nigeria.  At least one of them was confirmed to have acted recently on "Empire," and is also Jussie's trainer. 

So why, then, did Jussie tell Robin Roberts on "GMA" that he feels the arrested suspects could be his attackers?  Did he not know who they were identified to be?  The police said they had their ways of knowing the two brothers were very likely the men on the surveillance video, but it still has not been confirmed the men on the video has anything to do with the attack, though it's heavily suspected.

So, wouldn't Jussie have recognized their voices, statures, something about them, if they were in fact the attackers? 

We've also learned that the brothers each filed for bankruptcy in Chicago back in September 2016.  The Blast reports:

As for what they owed, each brother listed thousands of dollars owed in student loans, as well as other liabilities, and both claimed to earn minimal income.

Abel claimed he had $72,771 in liabilities, including $39,000 in student loans. The bodybuilder stated he only made $142 per month from “odd jobs,” which left him over $300 in the hole each month.

Ola claimed his debt had soared to $161,481, including $85,000 in student loans. Ola, who is an aspiring rapper and appeared on “Empire,” listed his income at $160 per month.

Both brothers listed a party and decoration store, It’s Party Time, as a shared asset, but claimed the business was operating at a loss. The party store, located on Archer Ave in Chicago, is now reportedly closed.

These are important facts, as now, there are reports, including one from CNN, that claim two law enforcement sources believe Smollett paid the Nigerian men to orchestrate the attack.


The brothers' attorney isn't giving major details, other than saying her clients' story will be told soon.  But we've also learned thanks to reports, that during a search of their apartment, cops found bleach that they believe may have been used during the attack with Smollett.  There's also supposedly a receipt showing the rope that was bought yesterday to create the noose Jussie claimed was placed around his neck.

While there's still questions left unanswered, things aren't looking great for Jussie.  He could very well be telling the complete truth and it's his word vs. the brothers'.  It could all be a misunderstanding by us, the public, of what Jussie is saying happened. Could he have been set up? Who knows.

The brothers' lawyer, Gloria Schmidt, says her clients indeed have new evidence that shifts the case.

Because of all the recent fall out, Jussie has hired a criminal defense attorney, Michael Monico, who also represents Donald Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen.


Through his lawyer, the "Empire" star denies ANY suggestions that he orchestrated this attack:

Jussie’s legal team released a statement, lashing out at the reports he paid the Usondairo brothers.  “As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with,” the statement began.

Smollett’s attorneys said, “He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack. Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying.”

“One of these purported suspects was Jussie’s personal trainer who he hired to ready him physically for a music video,” the statement continued, adding, “It is impossible to believe that this person could have played a role in the crime against Jussie or would falsely claim Jussie’s complicity.” to 

Just messy. No one knows WHY Jussie would orchestrate an attack on himself if he did.  But Chicago PD is trying to get to the bottom of it.

According to reporter Rafer Weigel, detectives have reached back out to Smollett’s attorney after releasing the Osundairo brothers from custody and expressed an interested in speaking with the star again.  He is not officially a suspect a this time, but do confirm that their "investigation has shifted" after new evidence was revealed by the brothers.


CBS claims Jussie and the brothers rehearsed the attack, and that Jussie paid them $3500. Again, Chicago PD is not confirming or denying any such details. Yet.

Sat, 16 Feb 2019 02:28:47 +0000 Woman Speaks Out After Filing Lawsuit Against ATL Nightclub Following Alleged Sexual Assault Captured On Facebook Live

 photo womansueATLnightclub.jpg

A woman has come forward after filing a lawsuit against Atlanta nightclub owners after she was allegedly sexually assaulted. A stream of the assault was captured on Facebook Live. More details inside...

An Illinois woman has come forward to speak out after she filed a lawsuit against an Atlanta nightclub claiming negligence.

30-year-old Jasmine Eiland filed the lawsuit against Opera Atlanta, as well as the owners, security companies and security personnel in Fulton County State Court after she was allegedly sexually assaulted in a club. The alleged crime was captured via Facebook Live and went viral, sparking yet another discussion about sexual assault and what it actually looks like.



In the lawsuit, she claims the club failed to provide adequate safety and security when the alleged attacked went down last month. She claims she was sexually assaulted twice that night - once on the dance floor and again in an area that was off-limits during the August Alsina concert. The man who allegedly committed the crime turned himself into police after a warrant for his arrest was issued last month.

In a recent news conference, Jasmine and her attorney L. Chris Stewart, said the club was not staffed with proper security, and due to Opera's negligence, she became a victim of sexual assault.

“Something like that should not happen in a nightclub,” Eiland’s lawyer L. Chris Stewart said in a phone interview. "She went from coherent, having fun ... to being out of it," he said. "They chose profits over protecting the people of Atlanta."

We're not posting the video evidence here, but her lawyer posted a clip of the Facebook Live stream that captured the assault. In the clip, you can hear Jasmine yelling, "No! No! Stop! Oh, God Help!" She then begins screaming and you can hear a man's voice telling her to "be quiet" and "chill." You can view the clip at your OWN discretion here.

CNN reports:

A suspect is in jail. Dominique Williams, 34, turned himself in two weeks ago after police obtained a warrant for his arrest on a charge of aggravated sodomy.

An attorney for Williams, Shequel Ross, said in late January in a statement posted to her Instagram account that he maintains his innocence.

"These allegations are false, and the evidence will prove our client should have never been charged." Williams appeared in court Wednesday for a preliminary hearing where a judge found there was probable cause for the sodomy allegation and for a new charge of rape in a 2018 case involving another woman.

Prosecutors will take the cases to a grand jury.

Dominique Williams was booked into Fulton County Jail on January 29th and remains there since no bond had been set.

In the news conference, Jasmine said she came forward to become the face of sexual assault in an effort to help other women who may fall victim to sexual predators.

"I'm going to continue to fight. I'm a victim but I'm a survivor as well," she said. "I figured that, had I not come forward and put my face forward, what would the next woman do?" she said.

Emotions took over as she spoke to the media. See the emotional conference below:

Sat, 16 Feb 2019 01:10:39 +0000 NBA Legends, Stars & Wifey Gabrielle Union Show Love To Dwyane Wade At 'One Last Dance' Dinner

 photo onelastteaser.jpg

Before Dwyane Wade finishes up his last and final NBA season, several of the league's legends and stars celebrated his 16-year career to kick off the 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend. And, of course, his wife Gabrielle Union and their newest addition, Kaavia James Union Wade, were in attendance. More inside...

 photo onelast1.jpg

With three championships and a Finals MVP award under his belt, Dwyane Wade is ending his 16-year career in the National Basketball Association.

Back in September, the Miami Heat baller announced he would be returning to Miami (from the Chicago Bulls) for a 16th and final NBA season. The 37-year-old, who is the Heat's all-time leading scorer, said it was a hard decision to make, but he had to come to terms with reality. D. Wade was drafted as the No.5 pick in the 2003 NBA draft, and now, he's ending his career the way he wants to...with "One Last Dance."

Last night, several NBA legends, current players, coaches, family and friends gathered together to send him off in epic style during his "One Last Dance" dinner in Charlotte, NC to kick off the 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend.

This marks D. Wades 13th and final All-Star Game appearance.

Friends and players - including Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Charles Barkley, Magic Johnson, Miami Heat president Pat Riley, and more - came together to celebrate his illustrious career, both on and off the court.

Melo and CP even presented the Miami Heat legend with his own Hollywood Star - NBA Style!

“People joke about the banana boat, but we more than a banana boat," Melo said during his speech.

Check it:







Magic Johnson reflected on D. Wade's most memorable championship run when he brought the Miami Heat back from a 0-2 deficit in 2006.

"Your hero was Michael Jordan. Well, you were Michael Jordan in that Dallas series," Magic said about D. Wade.










Mrs. Wade also took the stage to deliver a speech (which was funny as hell) to honor her hubby's retirement:



And baby Kaavia James Union Wade was also in the mix -- still mean mugging and being the cute "shady baby" that she is:




"Power" star Lala Anthony was there as her husband's date. They made their reconciliation official with lovey dovey social media posts on Valentine's Day.



HOT mama.

Notably missing was D. Wade's longtime homie LeBron James. The Lakers played their last game before the break on Tuesday.  By the way, King James/fellow Banana Boat Crew member selected D. Wade in the third round of the All-Star Draft for his team.

The 2019 All-Star Game goes down February 17th at 8pm EST.
