Russell Simmons Claims He's Being Extorted

This week Russell Simmons vehemently denied rape allegations after it was revealed criminal complaints had been filed [click here if you missed that].

Now Russell claims he's being extorted...

Russell Simmons tells ABC News
"In recent weeks, some former business, creative and romantic partners have aired grievances as claims I categorically reject. In some of these instances, financial motives and direct contradictory witness testimony has been supplied to the media, which has been completely left out of stories. In the last few days, one woman attempted to extort me for $500,000 only to recant her ridiculous claim. The current allegations range from the patently untrue to the frivolous and hurtful. The presumption of innocent until proven guilty must not be replaced by 'guilty by association.'"
