Russell Simmons: 'I will prove I'm innocent'

Russell Simmons

The women shared their stories with the New York Times and have all said they have been sexually harassed by Simmons. She said she declined an invitation to his apartment, but Simmons took them to his empty apartment regardless under the guise that he had to stop in to see a friend.

Cutrone added that for years when people would ask at events if she knew Simmons, she would respond, "Yes, I know Russell-he tried to rape me". "And I started kicking him really, really hard, screaming, telling him to get the f-k off of me".

In a statement to CNN, Simmons' attorney, Brad Rose, ensured his client will fully participate in the investigation against him as he's sure of a positive outcome. Former model Keri Claussen Khalighi was the first to come forward in November, where she informed the Los Angeles Times of her encounter with Simmons in 1991, who forced her to have sex and perform oral sex in front of actor Brett Ratner, who denied her help when she said "help me".

'These horrific accusations have shocked me to my core and all of my relations have been consensual'. "In the last few days, one woman attempted to extort me for $500,000 only to recant her ridiculous claim". Cutrone, who was 26 at the time, said she believes Simmons led her to his own apartment instead of a friend's. She resisted and asserted that he pinned her down, urging her not to resist.

She's among a dozen women who have alleged Simmons, who founded Def Jam Recordings, launched Phat Farm clothing line and created Rush Communications-one of the nation's biggest African-American owned media companies-with rape or sexual assault. "Today, I begin to properly defend myself", he wrote. "I will prove without any doubt that I am innocent of all rape charges", Simmons, 60, said in an Instagram post capped off with a "#NotMe" hashtag. Stay tuned! We'll share information today... And tomorrow the case of Jenny Lumet.

Noting the #NotMe hashtag, Simmons added: "My intention is not to diminish the #MeToo movement in any way, but instead hold my accusers accountable".
