WILL THEY LET RUSSELL SIMMONS LIVE?!
We’ve learned that two women have filed criminal complaints on Russell Simmons. Law enforcement sources tell us the two women filed police reports with the NYPD late last month with claims that the music mogul raped them in 1983 and 1991, respectively. One of those women is Sherri Hines, who appeared on Megyn Kelly’s show in December. She told police officials Simmons raped her at his office in 1983. The second woman — who remains anonymous — claims Simmons raped her at his Manhattan residence after a date in 1991. At the time she was 32, she claimed Russell Simmons tried undressing her while sitting on a couch, and forcibly raped her when she rejected his advances. Thirteen women accused him of sexual assault — the anonymous woman makes it 14. Russell has denied all previous claims against him — and, as we’ve reported, he even took and passed a polygraph in an attempt to refute at least one of the allegations. The NYPD is already investigating Simmons for at least 7 claims of sexual misconduct. We’ve reached out to Russ’ camp about the latest accusations … they had no comment.
