Russell Simmons Responds To Sexual Assault Claims, Denies Allegations

Model Accuses Russell Simmons of Sexual Misconduct While She Was a Minor

The Times - which first reported that six women, including Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge, claim that Ratner sexually harassed and assaulted them - reported on new claims against Ratner and revealed that longtime friend Russell Simmons allegedly engaged in inappropriate behavior with the director and producer.

The men took the young woman to dinner in 1991 in NY and then back to Simmons' apartment to show her something they had been working on.

Khalighi alleges that she was invited back to Simmons' apartment to view a video he and Ratner had been working on.

Khalighi claims that Simmons, who was then around twice the age of seventeen-year-old, tried to force her to have intercourse with him. The model said she fought the earlier advances, was quoted as saying, "I guess I just acquiesced" of the oral sex.

'In that moment, the realization fell on me that they were in it together'. There, Simmons penetrated her without her permission, she said.

Tanya Reid also shared a story about Simmons and Ratner. Both men denied allegations.

The model says she told three friends of the encounter, and the friends corroborated her account to The Times.

"I'm really in very scary space if u have time", Simmons texted. The statement went on to say, "at some point I observed Keri and Russell going upstairs to Russell's bedroom on that Saturday afternoon". Simmons said he didn't remember the phone call.

Ratner and Simmons have also been accused by a woman in a 1994 occurance.

She claims she asked Ratner for help, but he did not respond.

Simmons' attorney Brad D. Rose acknowledged Simmons apologised for their interaction in 1991, but only because it constituted what Simmons describes as an embarrassing episode of infidelity.

A second witness statement submitted by a then-assistant to Simmons' said that Anthony "Mac" McNair "did not notice any visible signs of distress or that anything improper had occurred" on the date in question.

On November 9, Variety published a report of Russell Simmons and Brett Ratner investigated in 2001 for alleged sexual battery by an unnamed 29-year-old woman. Prosecutors didn't file charges because of lack of evidence.

They also spoke on the phone after allegations of Ratner's alleged misconduct surfaced on November 1.

Simmons vehemently disputed the account in a statement released in response to the article. He allegedly apologized to her and mentioned that he has two children. I mean no disrespect to her at all when I say I honestly do not recall my telephone conversation with a hotel front desk clerk from over a quarter-century ago.

Russell Simmons reportedly emailed Terry Crews telling him to give the agent he claims sexually assaulted him "a pass".

Crews captioned the post: "NO ONE GETS A PASS".
