Four More Women Accuse Russell Simmons of Sexual Misconduct


Over the past few weeks five different women came forward accusing music mogul Russell Simmons of sexual misconduct [click here if you missed that].

Four more women have just added their names to the growing list...

From The LA Times
Actress Natashia Williams-Blach, who appeared in a Simmons-produced film, “How to Be a Player,” said that in 1996, after taking her to a yoga class, he attempted to force her to perform oral sex. Williams-Blach, who was 18 at the time, said she extricated herself from the situation by telling Simmons that she needed to go to study hall at UCLA, where she was a freshman.
Massage therapist Erin Beattie alleged that while giving Simmons a massage at a Seattle hotel in 2005, the mogul exposed himself and asked her to touch his penis. She said he also made lewd sexual comments and boasted of the ease with which he could sell yoga DVDs to the masses, whom he called “sheep.”
Two former Tantris employees described a sexually charged and tense atmosphere at the studio, where Simmons frequently attended class and oversaw programs. One of those women, former general manager Karen Russell, who left in February, believed Simmons was taking advantage of his position to pursue women at the studio.
Sherri Hines, who was in the all-female hip-hop group Mercedes Ladies and used the stage name Sheri Sher, alleged that Simmons raped her in his office around 1983.
The article also included a story previously told by Amanda Seales [click here if you missed that].
In September 2016, comedian Amanda Seales met with Simmons at the Los Angeles offices of his media company, All Def Digital, to talk about potentially working together. Seales said Simmons used vulgar language to ask if they had ever had sex. When she told him no, she said, Simmons responded: “Oh, right. 'Cause I would've remembered that, right?”

What is this part getting at? It's Russell saying he would've remembered if they'd fucked, right? I get that it's an inappropriate question asked in an inappropriate way, but is that all she's alleging happened that day?

"Did we fuck?"
"No."
"Oh, right. 'Cause I would've remembered that, right?”

That's the whole story? I'm just confused on that one.

Where are the stories about the men he fucked? That's what I'm waiting on.

@2:37 He probably paid them all off, because you know there are just as many men if not more.

@ 1:41pm... I can tell you do not work in the professional world...if you did you would KNOW WHY WHAT HE SAID IS A PROBLEM....dummy

Simmons was giving her a back-handed compliment and that's the whole story. And, it's more than enough for him to get fired from most companies (corporate or not) and, depending on the statue of limitation, it's enough for her to get a settlement because it's predatory behavior by a man in a powerful and controlling position.

He won't pay off the men...the men will stay silent because they don't want the stigma...

@2:59 Hahaha You don't know either, or you'd say what it is. Don't be an idiot and think it's some "Oh, I'd remember if I fucked a woman" bullshit. Celebrity conspiracy theorists are worse than Flat Earthers and Moon Landing Deniers.

he's a slimeball. i still hate amanda seales tho.that bitch is fucking terrible. if she could just stop talking. just about everything she says makes me cringe.

@1:41 BC shes an opportunistic drama queen and she couldn't wait for her metoo moment. Amanda was gong to stretch that any such way she could to suit herself. Her story is just a media grab for blog headlines because she is fucking desperate. The gossipy stories she tells about herself usually turn out to be full of gas or put her own stupidity on front street. She'd do herself a favor to shut up about it and let the other ladies talk now. Their stories seem much more valid and less self serving.
