The former Empire actor's attorney Shay Allen didn't hesitate to pry into the nature of Abimbola's connection to Jussie during a brutal cross-examination on Thursday, insisting the two were more than friends. Allen also alleged that Abimbola is a scorned ex-lover out of revenge.

Abimbola, 28, sat on the witness stand for the second day. He and his brother are at the center of Jussie's scandal, telling police the actor paid them thousands of dollars to stage a hate crime and fake beat him up.

But Jussie's attorney says the brothers' accusations are false, and Abimbola is just bitter.

When asked when he and Jussie began dating, Abimbola shot back, “We were never dating." On Wednesday, Abimbola told the court that he went to Steamworks bathhouse with Jussie in Chicago’s Boystown neighborhood.

Allen referenced the bathhouse, asking if gay porn was playing inside the spa.

"I don’t recall," Abimbola said, which sparked Allen to fire back questions like: "You don’t recall seeing gay pornography? … You don’t remember masturbating with him?”

"No," he responded. Allen also asked if there was "sexual tension" between the two. Abimbola said he "didn't know" if there was any sexual tension on Jussie's part.

Allen's bitter ex-lover defense wasn't the only strategy Jussie's team used. The attorney also painted the picture that the alleged hate crime was fueled by homophobia.

Allen used an example of Abimbola calling someone on the set of Empire a “f----t." The lawyer also pointed out that homosexuality is illegal in Nigeria, which is where the brothers are from.

Allen also attempted to label Abimbola as a drug dealer. The brother admitted to buying cocaine for the actor but insisted he did not sell narcotics.

Thursday marked day four of Jussie's trial.

The brothers don't have the ex-Empire star's back but his family does. His famous sister, Lovecraft Country star Jurnee Smollett, held onto Jussie's arm while heading into court and showing her support.

Jussie has been charged with a class 4 felony of disorderly conduct. If convicted, he faces up to three years in prison, but experts don't think that will happen. They believe Jussie could be placed on probation and slapped with community service instead of jail time.
