Russell Simmons was hit with four new sexual assault accusations three of which claim rape

Not Released

Russell Simmons has been accused of rape by four women in incidents spanning from 1983 to 1996 in New York Times and Los Angeles Times reports both published Wednesday (Dec. 13).

In his statement responding to the accusations, Simmons said he had already apologized for "instances of thoughtlessness" in his consensual relationships.

The New York Police Department has opened an investigation of Russell Simmons following allegations by multiple women that he sexually harassed or raped them, the NYPD told ABC News Thursday night.

The Def Jam Recordings cofounder issued a statement in response to the allegations made against him on November 19.

Cutrone told Page Six that in 1991, when she was 26, she bumped into Simmons - whom she knew as a casual acquaintance - at a party and walked with him to another party.

As well, another five women described episodes of sexual misconduct with the Def Jam co-founder as recently as 2016.

He has not been involved with the company or Green Dot since the acquisition was finalized in February, a Green Dot spokesman said.

"Our detectives are in the process of reviewing that information", Deputy Chief Timothy Trainor said in a statement. After a showing her around, she said, he brought her into his bedroom and raped her.

She told the newspaper he pinned her down and raped her.

The paper quoted a fourth woman, Christina Moore, who accused Simmons of groping her during a brief encounter in Miami in 2014. He said in a statement: "I vehemently deny all these allegations". Following the supposed attack, Baker says her career "went into oblivion", and personally, the PTSD prevented her from pursuing sex with men for nearly a decade after.

The alleged attacks largely follow a similar pattern, where Simmons used his power and influence as one of music's top executives to assert his dominance over women to lure them into compromised situations where he would sexually assault them. "The presumption of innocent until proven guilty must not be replaced by 'Guilty by Accusation'".

3 of the women, Drew Dixon, Toni Sallie, Tina Baker, told the New York Times that they were sexually assaulted by the industry gatekeeper. Following Lumet's claims, HBO said it would edit out any link to Simmons in its "All Def Comedy" show. I have separated myself from my businesses and charities in order to not become a distraction.

Over and over, the women said they had waited so many years to come forward out of fear of retaliation, particularly given Simmons' position atop a vast empire of production, fashion, and lifestyle business ventures.

He said he would "relentlessly fight against any untruthful character assassination that paints me as a man of violence". Simmons and fellow producer Rick Rubin helped bring hip- hop to wide U.S. audiences in the 1980s when they founded the label that signed major acts such as the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J and later Public Enemy.
