Jason Styles is a black gay man who lives in the Denver area.
Prosecutors said Abimbola "Abel" Osundairo, one of the brothers who helped Smollett allegedly stage the January 29 hate attack, served as Smollett's drug dealer, selling him Molly several times since the spring of 2018.
Johnson said Smollett hasn't made any statement to police since his arrest.
Alexander believed Smollett at first too.
"What he said was a mixture of contempt, disgust and basic anger", Reynolds said. The media didn't make up this story, Smollett did - allegedly. The sources added to TMZ that some cast and crew members still believe Smollett's story.
"Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked", the statement said. "Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense", Smollett's attorneys said. The actor was told he must surrender his passport and his bond was set at $100,000.
While the actor initially received an outpouring of support on social media, others were skeptical about the attack, which he said took place outside his Chicago apartment at 2 a.m. on a frigid night.
"I'm offended by what's happened, and I'm also angry", Johnson said. "Bogus police reports cause real harm". The victim in such a case would be the police, who wasted their time investigating the phony attack.

He said he has been a victim of hateful behavior.
A number of high profile celebrities and politicians defended Smollett after initial reports of the attack emerged, including Democratic 2020 candidate Kamala Harris who called it an attempted "modern day lynching".
"When anyone makes false claims to police, it not only diverts resources away from serious investigations but it makes it more hard for other victims of crime to come forward", Harris wrote on Twitter.
Immediately after his release on bond Thursday, Smollett was whisked to the set of "Empire".
Similar to a statement that was released by his legal team on Thursday evening, Smollett proclaimed his "innocence" to the Empire team, but the powers-that-be already felt the situation was untenable.
If Smollett is found guilty, falsifying a police report is a Class 4 felony which carries a potential sentence of up to three years in prison.
Smollett is due back in court March 14 when he is expected to enter his plea.
