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 then-aspiring model claimed the pair invited her to dinner in NY and then Simmons' apartment to view a music video they were working on.

Khalighi alleged that she turned to Ratner for assistance. Khalighi said it was during that time that Simmons pulled off her clothes with Bret Ratner looking on.

A FORMER model claims she was just 17 when hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons forced her into sex - and all while his pal, embattled moviemaker Brett Ratner, sat by and watched, according to a bombshell report. Ratner's attorney Martin Singer said that Ratner had "no recollection" of Khalighi asking for help, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The incident allegedly occurred in NY in 1991, after the then-17-year-old had dinner with Simmons.

Terry Crews on Sunday posted a screenshot of an email he said was from entrepreneur/producer Russell Simmons, urging the actor to give the target of his sexual-assault allegations a pass. He also said that most of the two days and one night he spent with her was in a group setting.

"I'm deeply saddened and truly shocked to learn of Keri's assertions as to what happened over the course that weekend", he continued.

The accusation involves a serious attempted rape charge, which Khalighi says she "fought wildly" before agreeing to perform oral sex. "In that moment, the realization fell on me that they were in it together".

"I looked over at Brett and said "help me" and I'll never forget the look on his face", she told the newspaper.

At that point she said she felt "disgusting" and went to take a shower. "Everything that occurred between us 26 years ago was completely consensual and with Keri's full participation". He added, "Let me be crystal clear and very direct". She recoiled, and Simmons left. "Abusing women in any way shape or form violates the very core of my being", he said.

Simmons and Ratner are also accused of sexually assaulting two more women, one in 1994 and another in 2001.

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.
