Russell Simmons: 'I will prove I'm innocent'

NYPD opens investigation into Russell Simmons amid rape allegations

Cutrone is only going public now because she's upset that Simmons launched #NotMe on Instagram for men to refute sexual accusations.

Several publications reported previously that Eva Marcille, the victor of America's Next Top Model, defended Russell Simmons following the half-dozen list of women who accused him of rape, assault, and sexual harassment.

Simmons chose to take a lie detector test to address the rape accusation from model Keri Claussen Khalighi.

Music industry veteran Russell Simmons has vowed to defend himself against mounting allegations of sexual misconduct.

The New York Police Department opened up an investigation of Simmons on Thursday following the accusations which are now over a dozen.

"Today, I begin to properly defend myself", the caption read. Four of the women have accused him of rape. "I will prove without any doubt that I am innocent of all rape charges", he wrote.

Kelly Cutrone has come forward accusing Russell Simmons of attempted rape.




Singer and TV Critic, Tina Baker, says she was invited back to Simmons' apartment to discuss her career, but things took a turn for the worse.

Through his Instagram account, Simmons added, "My intention is not to diminish the #MeToo movement in anyway, but instead hold the accusers accountable".

"I am blessed to have shared extraordinary relationships, whether through work or love, with many great women; and I have enormous respect for the women's movement worldwide and their struggle for respect, dignity, equality and power". He even went as far as to twist the #MeToo campaign, which promotes survivors of sexual assault to share their experiences and became so impactful that it spawned this year's "Time Magazine Person of the Year: The Silence Breakers", into a statement of innocence with #NotMe.

Simmons, who has stepped down from his involvement in his companies, denied that did anything unlawful.

"I know that my career's been studied in PR classes around the country", she said.

"[Simmons] was just really shaken up and I fucking split", she said. The mogul released a statement regarding the incident with Lumet, apologizing and sympathizing with her feelings of fear and intimidation, but denied assaulting her.
