Amid Rape Allegations Kimora Lee Simmons Tepidly Defends Russell Simmons

Amid Rape Allegations Kimora Lee Simmons Tepidly Defends Russell Simmons”

There's also video of Kimora Lee being asked by a video guy if she believes Russell Simmons is innocent of all the allegations.

"I love him", she said.

In December, after The New York Times interviewed women who said he had a pattern of sexually abusing young women in the industry, he issued a statement that "vehemently" denied all the allegations. So far, at least 14 woman, including Kelly Cutrone have accused Simmons of some form of sexual misconduct.

The question came up the same day Jennifer Jarosik, a filmmaker, became the latest of over a dozen women to accuse him of rape and/or sexual assault. NPR reported she filed a lawsuit Wednesday seeking $5 million in damages for having sex with her in his Los Angles home in 2016 without her consent. However, she was motivated to go public about the alleged attack following the other accusations made against Simmons past year. "We were close friends, married, divorced and have remained friends, co-parents and partners through it all". "These allegations against him are nothing like the person I have known in all that time", Kimora wrote. The rap mogul and philanthropist has acknowledged the feelings of his accusers in the past but his position on the matters are staunch and unwavering. According to Russell's ex-wife, he has worked tirelessly to support disenfranchised communities and has always conducted himself in a professional and compassionate manner. He has since mounted a #NotMe defense on social media.

The Def Jam Recordings co-founder is now facing sexual misconduct and/or rape accusations from over 10 women, with at least seven claims under investigation by officials from the New York Police Department (NYPD).
