2 Women File Police Reports Accusing Russell Simmons, Rape
The Def Jam Recordings co-founder has come under fire for the alleged sexual assault and misconduct (again).
New York, NY – Two alleged victims of violations of Russell Simmons have filed criminal complaints against the Def Jam Recordings co-founder.
According to TMZ, Sherri Hines and an anonymous woman presented their respective reports with the police department in the month of December. Hines says she was raped in 1983, while the unidentified accuser says that she was assaulted in 1991.
Hines is one of the several women that have come forward with allegations of sexual assault against Simmons after he was first accused of rape by Keri Claussen Khalighi in November. Since then, a number of reports have emerged over the past two months, accusing Simmons of different degrees of sexual misconduct.
During an appearance on Megyn Kelly Today, Hines described the alleged assault. According to TMZ law enforcement sources, his story falls in line with the report filed against Simmons.
"It all happened so fast that the next thing I know, with my pants down, and was in the middle of your path," Hines said Kelly.
Although Simmons' accusers have hit double digits and many of them have said they were raped, the Hip Hop mogul has maintained his innocence. After being accused of rape in the reports of the New York Times and the los Angeles Times last month, Simmons undertook to defend himself and prove that he is not guilty.
