Russell Simmons Accused of Assaulting Teenage Model as Brett Ratner Watched

The allegations by Khalighi surfaced in the article published by the Los Angeles Times Sunday in which Khalighi says she had gone to dinner with Simmons and Brett Ratner in NY back in 1991. "He eventually relented and coerced her to perform oral sex, she alleged". Khalighi said she didn't see anyone but Ratner and Simmons at Simmons' apartment and didn't recall being there the next day.

Def Jam co-founder Russell Simmons and filmmaker Brett Ratner have been accused of working together to sexually harass and assault women.

"He knew what he had done; I knew what he had done", Khalighi said.

Terry Crews on Sunday posted a screenshot of an email he said was from entrepreneur/producer Russell Simmons, urging the actor to give the target of his sexual-assault allegations a pass. She disputes that account.

Khalighi went on to say that she saw Simmons on the street a year ago and he apologized.

Khalighi claims she's run into Simmons on multiple occasions since then, and he's been remorseful about the incident - which he also denies.

Ratner's lawyer told the LA Times that his client has "no recollection" of Khalighi asking for help against Simmons' moves. "That's also why it was so vindicating, because it was there, acknowledged". Simmons' attorney provided two anonymous statements claiming that Khalighi didn't show signs of distress that weekend.

It was previously claimed that Kardashian got jealous of Beyonce's twins which is why she chose to have a third child. She was opening them all up the next day and she said, 'Mom, Baby Sister's not here. "That's kind of my vibe".

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

Variety reported earlier last week that Ratner and Simmons had been investigated in 2001 by the Beverly Hills Police Department for alleged sexual battery in a case not related to Khalighi's. "I remember this very, very clearly, the exact words he said on the phone. Abusing women in any way shape or form violates the very core of my being", Simmons wrote.

"They are publicly denying these allegations, which implies that the women who come forward are liars", Khalighi told the Times. I have been a public figure for all of my adult life. I'm deeply saddened and truly shocked to learn of Keri's assertions as to what happened over the course of that weekend.

Crews responded, "NO ONE GETS A PASS". Simmons later referred to the director of Rush Hour and Horrible Bosses as "my son" in a Vanity Fair profile.

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. The director's offices were closed and vacated from the Warner lot.
