Fashion PR Pro Charges Simmons with Rape Attempt

The rap mogul also clarified that the #NotMe hashtag does not diminish the #MeToo movement of the women who have spoken up against their sexual offenders.

Reports from The New York Times and Los Angeles Times published on Wednesday featured nine women who allege that Simmons raped, sexually assaulted or harassed them between 1983 and 2016.

Simmons chose to take a lie detector test to address the rape accusation from model Keri Claussen Khalighi. In his first message he stated he has "never had a sexual encounter that was not consensual or lawful", and that the accusations against him had "shocked me to my core".

Since November eleven women altogether, including screenwriter Jennifer Lumet, Actress Natashia Williams-Blach and comedian Amanda Seales have all accused Simmons of misconduct. Simmons added: "I have enormous respect for the women's movement worldwide and their struggle for respect, dignity, equality and power".

A law enforcement official said that the Police Department was conducting a preliminary investigation into the allegations and was eager to hear from victims. "Captioning an image that simply read "#NOTME" in block capitals, the Def Jam co-founder wrote, "Today, I begin to properly defend myself.

The latest accusations follow two other women coming forward accusing the multi-millionaire entrepreneur - a former partner of Aussie actor Melissa George - of sexual misconduct.

Simmons denies any wrongdoing, and wrote on Instagram that he "will prove without a doubt" that he is innocent. If Simmons wants to claim his innocence, again, that's his right, but spare us the theatrics and please stop being even more embarrassing.

This comes on the heels of Eva's public defense of Simmons, where she questioned those who are "quick to condemn an awesome man because of what someone says".

Simmons issued a statement in response to the story at the time of publication but did not address her age.

"[Simmons] was just really shaken up and I fucking split", she said. She ultimately decided not to, saying the idea of "pressing charges against him was overwhelming to me". The mogul released a statement regarding the incident with Lumet, apologizing and sympathizing with her feelings of fear and intimidation, but denied assaulting her.
