Woman says Russell Simmons sexually assaulted her when she was 17

Brett Ratner and Russell Simmons have been accused of working together to sexually assault an underage model

Reid alleges that she met Ratner and Simmons at a hotel in Miami, where she worked at the front desk.

Music mogul Russell Simmons was accused of sexual assault Sunday in a Los Angeles Times investigation. Khalighi, a native of Nebraska, said the duo took her to dinner at Mr. Chow, an upscale Chinese restaurant in New York City, one night and invited her to Simmons' apartment afterward to see a music video they were working on.

Terry Crews on Sunday posted a screenshot of an email he said was from entrepreneur/producer Russell Simmons, urging the actor to give the target of his sexual-assault allegations a pass.

Feeling "disgusting", Khalighi hopped into a shower, where she says Simmons popped in beside her and penetrated her without her consent, forcing her to turn away quickly, signaling for the recording mogul to leave.

Khalighi also saw Ratner 15 years after the incident in L.A. where he, too, apologized for the 1991 evening, she said. "Everything that occurred between Keri and me occurred with her full consent and participation", Simmons stated. "I completely and unequivocally deny the horrendous allegations of non-consensual sex against me with every fiber of my being".




She fought off the attempt at sexual intercourse, but Simmons coerced her into oral sex. "The trio initially dined together at Mr. Chow in NY before going to Simmons" apartment, according to the account. She states he apologised for his actions, and "he knew what he had done; I knew what he had done". Simmons said he didn't remember the phone call. Abusing women in any way shape or form violates the very core of my being.

Simmons' attorney Brad D. Rose acknowledged Simmons apologised for their interaction in 1991, but only because it constituted what Simmons describes as an embarrassing episode of infidelity. Simmons' attorney provided two anonymous statements claiming that Khalighi didn't show signs of distress that weekend.

Crews said the man, who he named as WME agent Adam Venit earlier this month, had called him the next day to apologise, "but never really explained why he did what he did". Simmons vehemently denied the claim. "So I'm coming out because what I've experienced privately is not matching what they are saying publicly and hypocrisy to me is repugnant and it's time for the truth to come out".

Crews had his own message for Simmons, whose Twitter handle is UncleRush. "I'm deeply saddened and truly shocked to learn of Keri's assertations as to what happened over the course of that weekend".

Ratner has denied sexual harassment claims made against him by six women, including actress Olivia Munn.
