CHICAGO — Jussie Smollett may have some support for his claim that he didn’t pay two brothers to stage a phony attack on him.
TMZ released a copy of the canceled check Smollett wrote to the brothers, one of whom was his personal trainer.
The memo line on the check reads, “5 week Nutrition/Workout program Don’t Go.”

“Don’t Go” was a music video for which Smollett said he needed to lose 20 pounds.
Once the check became public, Smollett said it was for training, and some of his texts to his trainer referred to nutrition and menus.
