Kimora Lee Simmons speaks out about rape allegations against her husband russell simmons
Fashion designer Kimora Lee Simmons, who was married to the hip hop mogul from 1998 to 2009, has finally addressed the rape allegations against her ex-husband Russell Simmons. Well isn’t that something?!!
She defended Russell, who is the father of their two daughters, in a post on Instagram.
Kimora wrote, “I have known Russell for over 25 years. We have been close friends, married, divorced and we have remained friends, co-parents and partners throughout it all. These allegations against him are nothing like the person I have known in all that time. I have known him to be a caring and supporting father and someone who has worked tirelessly to uplift disenfranchised communities.
“This is a pivotal moment in which men are being held accountable for their abuses of power and denigrating behavior towards women in all spheres. As a mother of two daughters, I believe that no one should ever be shamed or portrayed as an unreliable witness to their own experiences for speaking up. Nor should anyone be condemned legally without due process and a fair trial.”
We were wondering where she had been hiding!!
Kimora adds, “My sincere hope is that anyone face with harassment or assault reports it to their organization and/or law enforcement, though I understand that in many cases, this may not be possible. I remain committed as always to fighting injustice and inequality in all its forms.”
