Music mogul and Dej Jam Co-Founder Russell Simmons is the latest celebrity to be accused of sexual misconduct. Model Keri Claussen Khalighi shared a story with the LA Times over the weekend where she accused Simmons of forcing her to perform oral sex on him and sexually assaulting her in the shower without permission back in 1991 when she was 17 years old. According to the report, she was working with Simmons and had dinner with him. He invited her back to his room with his protégé up and coming music director Brett Ratner to watch a music video. Once she was there she said Simmons ripped off her clothes and tried to have sex with her. She rejected his advances and said she looked over at Brett to help her and he just watched. The woman says she forced to give Simmons oral and felt disgusting after. She went to shower and Simmons came into the shower without her consent to sexual assault her. Simmons issued a statement denying the allegations and said that everything that happened between the two was consensual. His lawyer also released three witness statements the supported Simmons’ accounts of the acts being consensual. Ratner has also disputed the accounts of four other women who accused him of sexual misconduct in this story. Read the story HERE
