Two 911 calls from the infamous Jussie Smollett case were just released, giving the public more insight into what happened that night back in January.

Fox News reported that the first call comes from someone phoning the police on Smollett’s behalf at 2:20am on January 29. The call was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request by the New York Post, and while the caller’s name has been redacted, he has since been identified as Frank Gatson, Smollett’s creative manager.

“I work with an artist — I don’t really want to say his name — but he states that [redaction] he went to Subway, he was walking by and some guys, somebody jumped him or something like that, and I just want to report it and make sure that he’s all right,” the caller can be heard saying in the first call, which lasted three minutes.

When the operator asked if Smollett needed medical help, the caller replied, “I just think he’s startled. I’m scared and I don’t know what it is. They put a noose around his neck. They didn’t do anything with it, but put it around his neck. That’s pretty f–ked up to me — sorry for saying it like that.”

The caller went on to say that while Smollett did not want to file a police report, he would make sure that he did so. The call ended after the operator informed the caller that police were on their way, but minutes later, the caller phoned again asking where the cops were. This second call ended seconds later when police arrived on the scene.

Smollett, who stars on the Fox television show “Empire,” claimed that he was a victim of a hate crime and was jumped by two men who shouted racist and homophobic slurs while also saying “this is MAGA country.” Police later concluded that Smollett staged the entire hate crime and hired two friends of his to jump him so that he could secure a higher salary on “Empire.” The two friends have since been identified as Nigerian brothers Abel and Ola Osundairo, and text messages between Smollett and the pair have just been released as well.

Daily Mail reported that Smollett often texted the Osundairos about drugs, calling cocaine “Whitney” and ecstasy “Molly.”

“N***a you still got a Molly connect? Imma need a good fo pills hahahaha (sic),” Smollett wrote to them in September of last year.

Court documents state that Smollett picked the brothers up on January 27 and took them to the location where the attack was to take place so that he could walk them through it.

“Smollett was clear that it was [one of the brothers] was to do the hitting because he did not trust the other to pull his punches,” the documents state. “During the planning session, it was discussed that they would go separate ways after the staged incident and use public transport or get a taxi.”

These new releases have only made the public more frustrated that Chicago prosecutors inexplicably decided to drop all charges against Smollett. This man clearly deserves to be in prison for what he did, and it’s a shame that he walks free to this day.
