As the plot thickens and the speculation increases around the attack on Jussie Smollett, the actor and singer has hired Michael Cohen‘s criminal defense attorney.

Michael Monico, a former federal prosecutor in Illinois’ Northern District, confirmed he is indeed representing Jussie on WGN’s “The Roe Conn Show” on Thursday.

The news comes on the heels of two Nigerian brothers, Obabinjo Osundairo and Abimbola Osundairo, being taken into custody for the attack and later released after providing new key evidence in the case.
