is russell simmons being sued for $10 million dollars?
Russell Simmons is now facing a $10 million lawsuit by an unidentified woman who accused him of threatening her and her son, before raping her in his hotel room.
The unidentified woman filed three complaints against Simmons on Friday, March 23 in Los Angeles court.
The woman accuses Russell of forcible rape, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
The woman stated that she took her son to a rap show and Simmons invited them to go backstage to meet the performer. She accepted and was later invited to a party at the Clarion Hotel.
She took her son home and spent time with Russell at a hotel bar. He reportedly told her he needed to go to his hotel room to “get something.” She claims that he closed the door and told her, “I’m going to [bleep] you.”
The woman claims Simmons threw her onto the bed and raped her. She left the hotel crying.
Russell denied her allegations, telling TMZ, “I vehemently deny all the allegations made against me. They have shocked me to my core as I have never been abusive or violent in any way in my relations with women. I have submitted myself to multiple lie detector tests.”
Simmons continues, “I denied forced sex and sexual harassment allegations brought against me in each test; I also answered no to the question, ‘Have you ever physically forced any woman to have sexual intercourse?’ I passed all of the lie detector tests.”
The media mogul made headlines in December when articles were published about alleged sexual assaults of nine women.
A month earlier, a woman named Keri Claussen Khlaighi and screenwriter Jenny Lumet both accused him of sexual assault.
Simmons attorney issued a statement saying, “Mr. Simmons stands by all of his previous statements — nothing has changed.”
