  • Russell Simmons Faces New Rape Allegations — REPORT

Dixon told the New York Times she suffered from depression and eventually left the company due to Simmons' actions. She met the producer during an assignment in 1987 and the two went out several times and stayed friend after their dating ended, according to the report. He said in a statement: "I vehemently deny all these allegations".

In addition, four more women have alleged inappropriate sexual behavior against Simmons. She repeated her address and Simmons again said, "No". But Baker said things "got really ugly, pretty fast" shortly after she arrived.

In a statement, Smiley vehemently denied any misconduct and accused PBS of conducting "a biased and sloppy investigation, which led to a rush to judgment, and trampling on a reputation that I have spent an entire lifetime trying to establish".

"The current allegations sent to me by the New York Times range from the patently untrue to the frivolous and hurtful", Simmons said in his statement.

"I felt assaulted", she told The Times, adding that Simmons threatened to tie her up because she was a "bad girl". Two former employees at yoga studio Tantris also described a sexually-charged and tense atmosphere at the studio, where Simmons frequently attended class and oversaw programs, and alleged he used his position of power to pursue women at the studio. She says she refused to touch his genitals.

"We have to recognize our actions have consequences", the instructor said. But, after the music mogul said no, she pulled back on her charges.

One of the women who stepped forward and accused Russell Simmons of sexual abuse has also claimed harassment under another former boss, Antonio "L.A".

This exposé came out just one month after the LA Times published their story involving Keri Claussen Khalighi who claimed Brett Ratner and Russell raped her nearly twenty years ago.

Simmons and fellow producer Rick Rubin helped bring hip-hop to wide U.S. audiences in the 1980s when they founded Def Jam, a label that signed major acts such as the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J and later Public Enemy.

"He was like, 'Do you want to work this out?'" she recalled him saying.

He allegedly tried to take out his penis until she caught his eye.

Last month, Def Jam founder Russell Simmons first faced sexual misconduct allegations when he and director Brett Ratner were accused of assaulting Keri Claussen Khalighi. And in the Fall of 1998 music journalist Toni Sallie says she was raped by Simmons in a Manhattan apartment that he lured her to by telling her there was a party for his girlfriend there. "Although I have been candid about how I have lived in books and interviews detailing my flaws, I will relentlessly fight against any untruthful character assassination that paints me as a man of violence". After allegedly leading them to a room, Simmons began running a bath, pushed Moore against a column, and had his "hands all over my body, up and down..."

"In recent weeks, some former business, creative and romantic partners have aired grievances as claims I categorically reject", he continued. The alleged incidents date from 1983 to 2016. In the last few days, one woman attempted to extort me for $500,000 only to recant her ridiculous claim. "While I have never been violent, I have been thoughtless and insensitive in some of my relationships over many decades and I sincerely apologize". I have separated myself from my businesses and charities in order to not become a distraction.
