Jussie Smollett spilled some high octane tea as he took the stand in his defense of false reporting crimes.

In a Chicago courtroom on Monday, Smollett’s attorney asked about his relationship with a key prosecution witness, Abimbola Osundairo.

Last week, Osundario said Smollett paid him and his brother to carry out the alleged fake attack that Jussie reported as a hate crime.

On the stand, Smollett said he and Osundario met at a club, did cocaine and weed, went to a bathhouse, and became intimate with each other. Even if that DID happen, what’s that have to do with you paying homeboy?!

Experts think the defense is trying to build a case against Osundario and his brother to attack Smollett themselves. Smollett’s team has already tried to paint Osundario’s older brother as a homophobe.

This is only going to get more interesting. Grab the popcorn!
