Russell Simmons Is Facing #Allegations of Rape, Sexual Misconduct From 18 Different Women

Music producer and entrepreneur Russell Simmons is facing charges of rape and sexual misconduct from 18 women.

The women’s accusations span 30 years, and include inappropriate behavior in business meetings, attempted sexual assault in a public restroom and multiple allegations of rape at his office and home. At least one woman has alleged sexual misconduct when she was just 17 years old.

Simmons, 60, issued a written statement in response, saying he “vehemently” denies every allegation of wrongdoing. He calls the accusations “horrific” and asserts that relations with each woman were consensual. Multiple lawsuits involving the accusers are still ongoing.
