Jussie Smollet paid for training not attack - Reports.

Embattled actor Jussie Smollet who plays Jamal Lyon on hit series Empire is insisting that he did not pay two-Nigerian-brothers Abel & Ola Osundairo $3,500 to stage an attack on him, New information revealed shows that the narration for purpose of payment reads :"5 week Nutrition/Workout program Don't Go." 

TMZ has obtained documents that on the surface back his claim the $3,500 check he wrote to Abel was for training. The check was written to Abel on January 23, 2019, six days before the "attack." The memo line reads, "5 week Nutrition/Workout program Don't Go." 
Sources connected to Jussie tell us, the reference to "Don't Go" is a song for which Jussie was going to shoot a music video ... featuring himself shirtless. The sources say Jussie had gained weight -- he was 192 lbs and needed to lose 20 pounds for the shoot, and that's why he hired Abel ... whom he says he calls "Bon."
