Russell Simmons investigated by NYPD following accusations by several women

Russell Simmons investigated by NYPD following accusations by several women

Kelly Cutrone has come forward to accuse music producer Russell Simmons of attempted rape.

The two reports follow an open letter penned by screenwriter Jenny Lumet in the Hollywood Reporter, in which she recounts a 1991 encounter with Simmons where she says refused to take her to her apartment after offering her a ride home, and ultimately forced himself on her.

Still, New York could replicate what Los Angeles police are doing in investigating a recently surfaced allegation that director Roman Polanski sexually molested a 10-year-old in 1975.

Simmons' attorney said the mogul will cooperate with police, but he has also maintained that he is innocent.

Simmons has been accused of sexual misconduct - including rape - by some 12 women. Four of the women have accused him of rape.

"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", Simmons said in a statement to CNN. "These horrific accusations have shocked me to my core and all of my relations have been consensual", he said.

He added that he has "enormous respect for the women's movement worldwide and their struggle for respect, dignity, equality and power" and said he was "devastated by any reason I may have given to anyone to say or think of me in the ways that are now being described". "I am devastated by any reason I may have given to anyone to say or think of me in the ways that are now being described".

Lawyer Tina Baker, who was a backup singer for Madonna in the early 1990s, claimed her then manager Simmons raped her after inviting her back to his place to "discuss her career".

"Today, I begin to properly defend myself". Of Simmons - an avid yogi - she added, "I hope he chokes on his om pendant".

"My intention is not to diminish the #MeToo movement in anyway, but instead hold my accusers accountable", he wrote. The PR executive, who's appeared on MTV's The Hills and America's Next Top Model, says Simmons is trying to start a #NotMe movement to subvert the claims made as part of the #MeToo movement. "It's just a statement about my innocence". #NotMe Again, this is not a movement against or even in conjunction with #Metoo. Simmons reportedly passed the test. Kelly's friend, Tatijana Shoan, corroborates Cutrone's claims, telling Page Six that she remembers Kelly telling her ex-husband (whom Shoan was dating at the time) about Simmons attack. She says she said no but agreed to go to a friend's apartment, which she now believes was actually Simmons'.
