Russell Simmons Continues to Deny Rape Claims


Yesterday news leaked that two of the 13 women accusing Russell Simmons of sexual misconduct had filed criminal complaints against him [click here if you missed that].

Russell staunchly denies the accusations...

In a statement sent to the media Russell insists,
"I vehemently deny all these allegations. These horrific accusations have shocked me to my core. I am blessed to have shared extraordinary relationships, whether through work or love, with many great women; and I have enormous respect for the women’s movement worldwide and their struggle for respect, dignity, equality and power. I am devastated by any reason I may have given to anyone to say or think of me in the ways that are currently being described. The presumption of innocent until proven guilty must not be replaced by “Guilty by Accusation.”
"I have already apologized for the instances of thoughtlessness in my relationships with women. I have separated myself from my businesses and charities in order to not become a distraction. I have re-dedicated myself to spiritual learning, healing and working on behalf of the communities to which I have devoted my life. I have conducted my life with a message of peace and love. Although I have been candid about how I have lived in books and interviews detailing my flaws, I will not accept responsibility for what I have not done."

Now Russell knows how Bill Cosby felt when the witch hunt decided his number was up. Pay attention folks. There are real predictors in Hollywood and they're committing heinous acts but we don't hear shit about them. Ask yourself why they haven't been exposed? Also, why hasn't his gay closet been kicked wide open? I'm tired of hearing about all these well paid beards coming for his sack.

All of his allegations stem back to his coke days. I believe, he believes, he did not rape those women.

1st paragraph lines 3-8 - In his mind only! Those 13 women would beg to differ

What does it mean that he separated himself from his businesses to avoid being a distraction? How so? He may not be the direct face but he is still drawing income from all his business venues. When will he and the white thugs he works with return ALL the money they stole from he Rush Card Holders?

The industry has known about Russell's problem. It's never been a secret, but as of lately all of this has come back to bite him in his ass. I'm just waiting on the men or little boys that I've heard about to finally start stepping up and sharing their similar experiences with Russell.

@7:29 Spot On He removed himself physically from his businesses but he is still reaping the benefits. See people like him and others think the common man is stupid, just because they have money! Nope
