According to FOX News, the actor explained he first met Abimbola during season four of Empire in either 2017 or 2018.
Smollett went on to claim the two did drugs together that night — cocaine and marijuana specifically. The Mighty Ducks actor insisted he provided the marijuana and Abimbola supplied the cocaine, which Smollett then paid $200 for.
The singer (who is an openly gay Black man) went on to say Abimbola brought him to a a gay bath house, where they "made out" and continued to take drugs in a private room, it was reported.
Abimbola had previously stated during his own testimony that he was heterosexual, and his relationship with Smollett was merely a friendship.

The Skinny actor then turned his attention to his relationship with Abimbola's brother Ola, who he stated he does not get along with. Smollett reportedly said that on the rare occasions when they would hang out, Ola “took the vibe out of the room."
As OK! previously reported, Smollett accused Ola of being homophobic, a claim the alleged attacker flat out denied. Despite attorneys questioning Ola about certain offensive language used in his past tweets, a photo surfaced of the two brothers at a Chicago pride parade, during which they were reportedly "handing out condoms and flexing" while shirtless and dressed as Trojan warriors.
