A lawyer for Jussie Smollett has claimed that the Nigerian brothers who allegedly attacked him may have been wearing "whiteface."

“Obviously you can disguise that. You can put makeup on,” said Tina Glandian, a member of Smollett’s legal team, on NBC’s 'Today.'

Glandian said she searched Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo online and claims she stumbled across an image to back up her theory.

“One of the first videos that showed up actually was one of the brothers in whiteface doing a Joker monologue. So it’s not implausible.”

Smollett was initially indicted on a 16-count felony indictment, but all charges were dropped and his record is to be expunged. He may still face federal charges as the FBI are still currently investigating the star.
