So far 11 women have come forward to claim that they were sexually assaulted by Russell Simmons. Here are all of their stories, courtesy of XXL Magazine:
The first woman discussed in The Los Angeles Times report is actress Natashia Williams-Blach, who starred in the Simmons-produced 1996 film, How to Be a Player. At the time she was a freshman at UCLA, and she says that Simmons tried forcing her to perform oral sex on him after they took a yoga class. According to Williams-Blach, she got herself out of that situation by telling Simmons she had to get back to UCLA so she could go to study hall.
The second accuser in the story is a massage therapist named Erin Beattie, who says Simmons exposed himself to her as she gave him a massage at a Seattle, Wash. hotel in 2005. She reports that the mogul then asked her to touch his penis, and she declined before telling him she wouldn't tolerate her sexual advances.
Sherri Hines, who met Simmons at a New York City nightclub when she was "17 or 18," says Simmons invited her into his new office in 1983. That's when she alleges the then-fledgling mogul pinned her down and proceeded to rape her.
Lisa Kirk, who had dated one of Simmons' friends in the 1980s, alleges that Simmons attempted to sexually assault her in a New York City nightclub bathroom in 1988, five years after Hines says Simmons raped her in his office.
As told, Simmons has now been accused of sexual misconduct by 11 women. First, model Keri Claussen Khalighi accused Simmons of sexual assault, while The Mummy scribe Jenny Lumet stepped forth to accuse Simmons of the same thing a short while later. Following Lumet's accusations, he issued a statement he was stepping down from the companies he owns.
In The New YorkTimes story, former Def Jam employee Drew Dixon, singer Tina Baker and music journalist Toni Sallie all accused Simmons of rape. Christina Moore, who met Simmons at Art Basel in 2014, says the mogul sexually assaulted her after inviting her and a friend to his room.
