Several Hospital Workers Reportedly Fired For Accessing Jussie Smollett’s Medical Chart
Prosecutors claim that Smollett hired his personal trainer, Abel Osundairo , and brother Ola Osundairo, to stage the assault. One nurse, who preferred to remain unnamed, claims it was a misunderstanding, and denies ever accessing Smollett's chart.

However, he suffered drug and alcohol problems while he was on the show, according to Variety. His noteworthy credits among the dozens of films in which he acted include Big Wednesday, with Gary Busey; Hooper, with Burt Reynolds; and Hard Country, opposite Kim Basinger.

Born in 1947 in Denver, Colorado, Vincent made his first appearance on screen in the 1967 television film The Hardy Boys: The Mystery of the Chinese Junk under the name Mike Vincent.

In 2012, Vincent cheated death in 2012 after suffering from an infection that required his right leg to be amputated.

We wish his family and friends condolences in their time of grief.
