Russell Simmons Has Been Accused Of Rape By Three More Women

But the newspaper also reported an incident in 2014 in which a woman said Simmons touched her inappropriately after encountering him in a Miami hotel.

The accusations of sexual abuse by men in power continue to grow rapidly and now the accusations are rising to an even higher level as 3 separate women have come forward to accuse Russell Simmons of having actually raped them. All of the women offered harrowing details to the Times; in each case, the paper spoke with friends and associates of the women, who confirmed that they were told of the incidents close to the time they happened. She told the Times that fending off Simmons "was a full-time job", and Simmons, through his lawyer, acknowledged that he engaged in "inappropriate conduct" with Dixon.

Baker states her one-time manager Simmons raped her at his apartment in 1991, after inviting her back to his apartment.

"The last thing I remember was him pinning me down to kiss me on the bed", Dixon said. She says she kept the story quiet as she didn't want to be stigmatised in the industry for accusing such a powerful figure.

Simmons acknowledged that he dated Sallie, but denied non-consensual sex acts. One night after they ran into each other a club, she said he invited her back his apartment to discuss her career.

Simmons and fellow producer Rick Rubin helped bring hip-hop to wide U.S. audiences in the 1980s when they founded Def Jam, a label that signed major acts such as the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J and later Public Enemy.

But on Wednesday after the reports by the LA Times and New York Times were published, Simmons issued a much more strongly worded statement denying the accusations.

An actress Natashia Williams-Blach - who appeared in a Simmons-produced film - said that he tried to force her to perform oral sex on him after a yoga class in 1996 when she was 18. The music mogul now denies additional claims made by several other women in a report from The New York Times. News. The 60-year-old stated he is fortunate enough to have had many "extraordinary" relationships with women, and respect's the women's movement in all of its forms. In 1995, when she was 24, he raped her.

"On work calls, he would talk graphically about how she aroused him". In recent weeks, some former business, creative and romantic partners have aired grievances as claims I categorically reject. He then got on top of her, pushed her down, and reportedly told her "Don't fight me". "I said 'Wait.' You said nothing", she wrote.

I have already apologized for the instances of thoughtlessness in my consensual relations.

Toni Sallie, a journalist for the trade publication Black Radio Exclusive, met Simmons while on assignment in 1987 and went on a few dates with him, before she chose to stop seeing him.

"What I will not accept is responsibility for what I have not done", Simmons said in his statement. I have re-dedicated myself to spiritual learning, healing and working on behalf of the communities to which I have devoted my life. "We were fighting. I said no".

In addition, two former employees at his TANTRIS yoga studio said that the business had a "sexually-charged and tense atmosphere" in which SIMMONS pursued women at the studio.
