RUSSELL SIMMONS DENIES SEXUAL ASSAULT

“I had been through struggles. So, I had all these experiences so I could relate to this man, and I know I was very lucky to have escaped. And this brother was going through what I had been through, and I knew it," the Def Jam founder said. “And I did very little,” Simmons added. “And I’ll never forget that I didn’t do much to help.”

Fans decided to share the trailer of HBO's On The Record documentary about several women who have accused him of rape and sexual assault.

Simmons has been accused of sexual misconduct and assault by 20 women. He was forced to step down from his positions in Def Jam Recordings and other companies as a result of these allegations before he moved to Bali, Indonesia. Simmons cannot be extradited to the US from Bali to face charges -- but he has visited the country several times and not been arrested.
