Russell Simmons Steps Down From Companies Amid Allegations

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Def Jam Records founder Russell Simmons says he is stepping away from his companies following a second allegation of sexual misconduct.

In an essay published by The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday, screenwriter Jenny Lumet described a “circa 1991” incident in which she says Simmons offered her a ride home following a social gathering but instead took her to his New York apartment against her will and had sex with her.

Lumet says she was prompted to speak out by Simmons’ denial earlier this month of a separate 1991 allegation of misconduct by another woman.

Simmons says in a statement released after the essay that although Lumet’s memory of the night is “very different” from his, it’s clear to him “that her feelings of fear and intimidation are real.” He apologized for being “thoughtless and insensitive” in some of his relationships. buy viagra master card consumo excesivo de viagra santa claus research paper reflective essay sample obamacare research paper how to write an essay about an essay follow site essay review service how long after taking viagra can you take cialis viagra hearing loss class action newspaper article homework best essay samples tok essay writing service egypt pyramids research papers essay university admission example compare and contrast buddhism and hinduism essay unity of virtues thesis cheap cialis in california female viagra time abc writing paper sample introductory paragraph for essay zap homework Like on Facebook.
