Russell Simmons Denies Rape Accusations With #NotMe

Russell Simmons Denies Rape Accusations With #NotMe

A spokesperson for Simmons tells ET that "Russell Simmons fully supports and will cooperate with the police inquiry and is confident of a swift resolution".

Simmons has repeatedly denied these allegations.

Simmons denied Khalighi's claims at the time, and in an Instagram post on Thursday, wrote that he "will prove without any doubt that I am innocent of all rape charges".

After sitting down on a couch, she said, he pinned her down and raped her despite her attempts to fight him off.

Back-up singer Tina Baker, who has performed with Madonna and Bruce Springsteen, said Simmons was her manager when he invited her to his flat in the early 1990s. On the opposite end of the country, The Los Angeles Times published a report that included sexual misconduct accusations from several more women across a span of 30 years.

His comments quickly drew criticism, including from Sherri Hines, one of the women who accused Simmons of rape and who said the NYPD contacted her.

The owner of popular prepaid debit card brand RushCard is distancing itself from the brand's co-founder, Russell Simmons, in the wake of new sexual misconduct allegations against the hip-hop impresario. "Today, I begin to properly defend myself".

Russell Simmons has since deactivated his Twitter account and issued a statement on Instagram.

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. She told the Times that she ran into Simmons one night while leaving a bar near his home and he offered to order her a auto, inviting her into his apartment to wait. Stay tuned! We'll share evidence today... "It's just a statement about my innocence".

Simmons stepped down from his businesses after Lumet's accusation and released the following statement to Us Weekly: "I have been informed with great anguish of Jenny Lumet's recollection about our night together in 1991. These horrific accusations have shocked me to my core and all of my relations have been consensual", he said following The New York Times article.

"I didn't want to cut off my one conduit to having any hope of a career", Dixon said. Not long afterward, Lumet wrote a column in The Hollywood Reporter, saying Simmons had sex with her without consent. To this day, she said, "I don't feel comfortable in a room full of men".
