Russell Simmons is being accused of yet another act of sexual assault.
This time, “The Real Housewives of New York” star Luann de Lesseps is speaking out against Def Jam Recordings co-founder.
“He grabbed my a** in an elevator, he was just a pig. I haven’t told anybody about that before,” de Lesseps told The Daily Beast is a piece published Friday, April 6. “I was grossed out.”
“I was like ‘how dare you.’ He invaded me, he took advantage of me, being who he is, thinking he is all ‘it,’ all ‘everything.’ He thought he could just do that,” she continued, insisting Simmons did not apologize for his alleged behaviour. “I looked at him and said, ‘Don’t ever do that again.'”
Simmons, 60, is already feeling the heat after being hit with a $10 million lawsuit by an anonymous woman who accused him of sexual assault back in March.
Furthermore, the CEO of Rush Communications was the centre of exposes published by The New York Times and Los Angeles Times involving nine women who accused him of committing acts of sexual misconduct and assault.
To date, Simmons has been accused of raping six different women.
