Russell Simmons & Brett Ratner Accused Of Sexual Misconduct Against 17 YO

Russell Simmons Accused of Assaulting Teenage Model as Brett Ratner Watched

Simmons strongly disputed Khalighi's account in a statement claiming, "Everything that occurred between Keri and me occurred with her full consent and participation".

A woman has accused recording mogul Russell Simmons of forcing himself on her when she was a 17-year-old model and claims film producer Brett Ratner allegedly watched and refused to do anything about it.

Ratner allegedly ignored Khalighi, and she alleged that Simmons then forced her to have oral sex with him.

"I looked over at Brett and said "help me" and I'll never forget the look on his face". "In that moment, the realisation fell on me that they were in it together".

"I fought it wildly", said Khalighi, who claimed she was eventually coerced into performing oral sex.

Russell Simmons reportedly emailed Terry Crews telling him to give the agent he claims sexually assaulted him "a pass".

Khalighi alleged that she turned to Ratner for assistance. While taking a shower, she says, Simmons walked up behind her and briefly penetrated her without her consent.

She states the pair invited her to Simmons' home to show her part of a clip they had been working on. "'It hurt so much'".

Ratner stands accused of varying degrees of predatory behavior by several actresses, including Natasha Henstridge, Jaime Ray Newman, Ellen Page, Katharine Towne, and Olivia Munn.

Khalighi said that she saw Simmons at the Soho House in West Hollywood previous year, where he approached her and delivered a "really touching, remorseful apology" for his behavior.

Simmons referenced his own involvement in social activism as well as his support for the #MeToo campaign. "Let me be crystal clear and very direct. Abusing women in any way shape or form violates the very core of my being", he said.

The Times story quoted Ratner's attorney, Marty Singer, as saying his client has "no recollection" of any requests for help by Khalighi.

"He listened and he un-defensively acknowledged the truth of what had happened", Khalighi told the Times.

She told the Times that about a year ago she saw Simmons in West Hollywood where he "poured his heart out in a really touching, remorseful apology" and offered his telephone number. She states he apologised for his actions, and "he knew what he had done; I knew what he had done". "That's also why it was so vindicating, because it was there, acknowledged". Reid alleges that she met Ratner and Simmons at a hotel in Miami, where she worked at the front desk.

"Russell Simmons began dating Kimora when she was 17 and he was 35 so the only thing that shocks me is that there are not more victims tbh", wrote one person.
