Russell Simmons investigated by NYPD after misconduct allegations

Russell Simmons investigated by NYPD after misconduct allegations

He continued, "my intention is not to diminish the #MeToo movement in anyway, but instead hold my accusers accountable".

"The current allegations sent to me by the New York Times range from the patently untrue to the frivolous and hurtful". Simmons was also accused of sexual assault by nine more women in a reports published by The New York Times and Los Angeles Times on Wednesday, December 13.

Hines, who was part of the all-female hip hop group Mercedes Ladies, said she doesn't wish any harm on Simmons but added that she's relieved police are finally looking into the matter.

I completely and unequivocally deny the horrendous allegations of non-consensual sex against me with every fiber of my being I know Keri Claussen Khalighi and remember the weekend in 1991 that she has referenced. And tomorrow the case of Jenny Lumet.

Posting on his page yesterday, Simmons said he has begun the process of properly defending himself. Drew Dixon told the NY Times that she was working closely with Russell Simmons in the 1990s when he raped her at his Manhattan apartment in 1995. As soon as they entered, Mr. Simmons started pouring drinks and trying to kiss her, leading to a scuffle, she said. "He just expected that that was what was going to happen", she said. "It's just a statement about my innocence", he wrote.

Russell Simmons deactivated his Twitter account amidst a new wave of rape allegations. Simmons said he had a different memory of the night but apologized.

Green Dot Corp., a Pasadena card company that acquired RushCard owner UniRush this year, said in a statement late Wednesday that it would remove photos of Simmons from the RushCard website, "given the seriousness of these allegations and out of respect for all parties". "These horrific accusations have shocked me to my core and all of my relations have been consensual", he said.

Simmons came to fame in the Eighties as one of the founders of Def Jam Records, helping introduce hip-hop into the mainstream and emerging as one of the industry's most prolific executives. "I am a supporter of the #MeToo campaign and the victims who were previously terrified to stand up and speak out against sexual misconduct". "I will relentlessly fight against any untruthful character assassination that paints me as a man of violence".

Simmons told The Times that he has "accepted that I can and should get dirt on my sleeves if it means witnessing the birth of a new consciousness about women", but "what I will not accept is responsibility for what I have not done".
