Jussie Smollett's lawyers have been sued by two Nigerian-American brothers who carried out the "attack" on the actor, accusing the legal team of defamation in the latest twist to the strange case.

Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, a pair of personal trainers, were briefly taken into custody in January as Chicago police investigated Smollett's claim.

The Empire actor, who is black and gay, said two men attacked him in the city, hurling homophobic insults and pro-Trump slogans at him and beating him up, leaving him with a noose around his neck.

Chicago police quickly surmised that the attack had been staged.

On Tuesday the two Nigerian-American brothers, who were never charged, and who police said were paid $5,000 by Smollett to "attack" him, sued Smollett's lawyers.

They sought damages for defamation, after the lawyers insisted they had "criminally attacked" the 36-year-old actor, even after police concluded otherwise.

In the lawsuit, filed in Chicago federal court, the Osundairo brothers said that Smollett's lawyers Mark Geragos and Tina Glandian falsely accused them of attacking Smollett, even after the investigation was over.
