Well, it turns out that Abel and Ola Osundairo are not just too sexy for their shirts. They’re also too sexy for the truth. According to TMZ, Team Abel don’t plan on telling us their side of the story, which is really the only side of the story I want to hear at this point. And the decision to stay mum has cost them their representation. The bodybuilding brothers ignored their lawyer Gloria Schmidt’s advice and declined to make a public statement after charges were dropped against their alleged victim/co-conspirator, Jussie Smollett. So Gloria and the crisis management team she partners with are out of the Osundairo business.
Moments after Jussie was cleared by the State’s Attorney, the lawyer for Abel and Ola urged them to make a public statement, standing by their claim Jussie faked the “attack.” We’re told they refused, and ultimately their lawyer, Gloria Schmidt, bailed on them, saying she didn’t want to rep them anymore.
Gloria Schmidt, the attorney for the Osundairo brothers no longer represents them.

As we learned yesterday, Jussie is sticking to his guns and maintains that he was the victim of an attack on his person, and that he has been consistently telling the truth “since day one”. Despite the fact that he got off scot-free, with all charges against him dropped and his record expunged, he’ll have to forgive us if we’re still a little skeptical about his version of events. It just doesn’t add up. Especially given what we saw with our own eyes, which was two rather impressive hunks of man meat, later identified as Abel and Ola, casually purchasing ski masks and red ball caps on the night of the attack. However, Jussie still wants us to believe it was completely unrelated and maintains that the $3,500 he paid them was for training. Jussie’s lawyer said that the police reports claiming the money was for the attack were untrue.
"The Osundairo brothers said more than once the $3,500 check they received was for exactly what Jussie said. It was for nutrition and trainers. They were his trainers. That statement was not true." https://t.co/uigSMzrW32 pic.twitter.com/yqJn9dzzv1

Why they would continue protecting Jussie at this point instead of cashing in on the talk show circuit is either really dumb, or really admirable. They could be dancing with Ellen by week’s end if they played their cards right! I guess they are pretty fucking serious about their “no way I’m disco dancing” credo.
Abel and Ola remain the most magnetic, and enigmatic, characters in the whole ordeal. Their “Team Abel” Instagram account remains tantalizingly active, but is set to private. However, I did find their other account which proves that while they might not have shirts that fit, they at least have a sense of humor.
