They were questioned Friday but police were obliged to release them.   Update 11 p.m. EST Feb. 16: Jussie Smollett’s attorneys released a statement Saturday evening: 'As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with. He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack. Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying. 'One of these purported suspects was Jussie’s personal trainer who he hired to ready him physically for a music video,It is impossible to believe that this person could have played a role in the crime against Jussie or would falsely claim Jussie’s complicity. 'Jussie and his attorneys anticipate being further updated by the Chicago Police Department on the status of the investigation and will continue to cooperate. At Present time, Jussie and his attorneys have no inclination to respond to 'unnamed' sources inside of the investigation, but will continue discussions through official channels.' Update 9:45 p.m. EST Feb. 16: Chicago police said Saturday evening that “the trajectory of the investigation” into the reported attack on Jussie Smollett has shifted and they want to conduct another interview with the “Empire” actor. According to the Associated Press, Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi issued a statement saying: “We can confirm that the information received from the individuals questioned by police earlier in the Empire case has in fact shifted the trajectory of the investigation. We’ve reached out to the Empire cast member’s attorney to request a follow-up interview.” Update 8:30 p.m. EST Feb. 16: Sources told CBS that the two brothers who were detained were paid $3,500 before leaving for Nigeria on Wednesday and were promised $500 more when they returned to the United States.

Update 7 p.m. EST Feb. 16: Law enforcement sources told WFLD that police are interested in speaking with Jussie Smollet’s lawyer after new evidence surfaced after they conducted interviews with two Nigerian brothers Friday.  According to CNN, police reportedly believe that the brothers were paid by Smollett to “orchestrate the assault.” CNN did not identify their sources. CNN also said that the brothers purchased the rope at hardware store that matched the rope used in the assault. Original report:  Chicago police denied reports that Jussie Smollett staged his own attack because he is being written off the show “Empire.”  Two Chicago TV stations, citing anonymous sources, are reporting that Smollett lied to police about the Jan. 29 attack and that he helped plan it with two others who were extras on the show. “We have no evidence to support their reporting and their supposed CPD sources are uninformed and inaccurate,” police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. Investigators have confirmed they are interviewing two “persons of interest” in the attack. The two men “are not considered suspects at this time,” but may have been in the area where the attack occurred, according to Guglielmi. Guglielmi also said police won’t release any details about the case, including a timeline of events during the attack or the identities of those being questioned. Police reportedly raided the home of the two “persons of interest” Wednesday night, according to WBBM-TV, removing bleach, shoes, electronics, and other items.  The station is also reporting the two men have appeared as extras on “Empire,” meaning Smollett may have known them. Smollett told police he was attacked around 2 a.m. Jan. 29 in the city’s Streeterville neighborhood by two men shouting racial and homophobic slurs. He said they attacked him and wrapped a noose around his neck. He was hospitalized briefly for treatment of his injures. >> Related: 'I will only stand for love': 'Empire' actor Jussie Smollett performs in California after attack It’s taken police weeks to find the people they believe were in a surveillance video taken the morning of the attack.
