Earlier this week a former business partner of Russell Simmons and his brother Reverend Run threatened to file suit after claiming Russ and Run cheated him out of profits from the Pastry sneaker line [click here if you missed that].
Russell Simmons says it's just not true...
Russ tells TMZ ,
"[Rasheed] worked for me ... I fought to keep his job ... and I'm sorry he's disgruntled, but that's what happens. Anyone can say anything if a celebrity's name's attached to it ... there's nothing I can do about it ... it's false."
