Another three women have accused music mogul Russell Simmons of rape and “violent sexual behavior” in a new expose.
The hip-hop legend recently stepped down from his companies amid allegations of misconduct from two women after denying their claims against him, but now three new accusers have come forward for a fresh New York Times report, which was published on Wednesday.
All three women worked with Simmons and one was an executive at his Def Jam Recordings record label.
Drew Dixon claims she was forced to sit on his lap during meetings and that he exposed himself to her “regularly”. She tells the newspaper she quit the company after Simmons allegedly raped her.
Journalist Toni Sallie, who claims to have briefly dated Simmons in 1987, tells the publication he sexually assaulted her in his Manhattan apartment.
The third accuser, singer Tina Baker, alleges Simmons pinned her to a bed and assaulted her in the early 1990s, when he was her manager.
Simmons has denied the allegations, calling them “horrific”, and adding, “They have shocked me to my core”.
He insists, “All of my relations have been consensual”.
