Russell Simmons Jenny Lumet

Music and film mogul Russell Simmons quit his empire after screenwriter Jenny Lumet accused him of raping her in 1991.

In a statement issued on Thursday, Simmons said Lumet’s “memory of that evening is very different from mine.” He added: “I don’t want to be a distraction so I am removing myself from the businesses that I founded.”

Lumet, 50, recalled how Simmons violated her in graphic detail in a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter.

Lumet, who is the daughter of famed filmmaker Sidney Lumet, said she met the 60-year-old co-founder of Def Jam Recordings around 1987.

In a first person narrative, Lumet described how Simmons asked her to appear in a movie he was producing starring his brother Rev. Run‘s rap group Run DMC.

“You pursued me, lightly, on and off, over a course of years, saying you had a thing for a “little yellow girl” (me). I rebuffed,” she wrote.

“Once you sent me 250 balloons with the note ‘Please baby, please baby, baby, baby, baby’ after a character in a Spike Lee movie. It was light, fun, and flattering.”

In 1991, when Lumet was 24, Simmons offered to take her home after dining at a New York restaurant.

I got into the car with you. The driver began to drive. I assumed you knew where I lived, because you had sent me 250 balloons, but I gave the driver my address on 19th Street and 2nd Avenue.

You said to the driver: “No.”

I didn’t understand, so I said: “Russell?”

I said, again, to the driver: “19th Street.”

Again you said to the driver: “No. ”

Then, the car doors locked. It was loud. The noise made me jump.

I didn’t recognize you at that moment. It was disorienting. It was disorienting. I say it twice, now, because you said “No” twice, then.

I couldn’t open the doors. I couldn’t open the windows. The car was moving. The driver did not stop. He did not take me to 19th Street. He took me to your apartment.

I didn’t try to kick the windows out. I didn’t punch or kick. I didn’t say “What are you doing?” My voice left me after the second “No”.

Once the SUV arrived at Simmons’ residence, Lumet described him practically dragging her into his elevator then moving her “very quickly” inside his apartment.

“You moved me into a bedroom. I said “Wait.” You said nothing.

There was penetration. At one point you were only semi-erect and appeared frustrated. Angry? I remember being afraid that you would deem that my fault and become violent. I did not know if you were angry, but I was afraid that you were.

You told me to turn over on my stomach. You said something about a part of my body. You did not ejaculate inside me.

When it was over, I got my clothes and quickly went down in the elevator by myself. You didn’t try to stop me. I went home in a taxi. I was grateful to be secure in my home. I never told anyone this story until October 27th of this year (after the Harvey Weinstein story was in the news, but weeks before the first public claims were made against you), when I told a girlfriend from childhood.

Lumet is the second woman to come forward with accusations against Simmons.

Keri Claussen Khalighi, now 43, says she was only 17 when Simmons raped her in his NYC apartment.

Simmons denied the 1st incident in a letter published Nov. 22 by The Hollywood Reporter.

Read the full text of Simmons’ response to Lumet’s accusation below.

 

FULL TEXT OF RUSSELL SIMMONS’ STATEMENT:

I have been informed with great anguish of Jenny Lumet’s recollection about our night together in 1991. I know Jenny and her family and have seen her several times over the years since the evening she described. While her memory of that evening is very different from mine, it is now clear to me that her feelings of fear and intimidation are real. While I have never been violent, I have been thoughtless and insensitive in some of my relationships over many decades and I sincerely and humbly apologize.

This is a time of great transition. The voices of the voiceless, those who have been hurt or shamed, deserve and need to be heard. As the corridors of power inevitably make way for a new generation, I don’t want to be a distraction so I am removing myself from the businesses that I founded. The companies will now be run by a new and diverse generation of extraordinary executives who are moving the culture and consciousness forward. I will convert the studio for yogic science into a not-for-profit center of learning and healing. As for me, I will step aside and commit myself to continuing my personal growth, spiritual learning and above all to listening.




  • WutizaGRANNY!

    So not to judge but..was she drugged? How did you get out the car? Why did you get out the car if you were in fear? I am so sad this is common…

  • Noirluv45

    Say it ain’t so? Uncle Russ? He’s been a pervert since day one by getting with a 17-year-old girl. Well, all the others better just come on out before they get exposed.

  • SpillyNillie

    These “execs” and “powerful” figures better get they coin straight because it’s coming….

  • InsecureNEVA

    But she was 24 not 14. Cant understand how someone would let someone get away with raping them and not going to the police. They still want to be “stars” and not tell.

  • Noirluv45

    “You pursued me, lightly, on and off, over a course of years, saying you had a thing for a “little yellow girl…” ? Not only is he a pervert, but he’s color struck. I always knew that about him too. Never liked him!

  • hotntot95

    Good questions. I believe the sex part is expected and consensual bc these young girls want to star in a movie so bad. ..the rape part comes to play bc they really don’t want to…they just go along with it hoping these directors will pick them…it’s predatory behavior and it’s really sad..

  • Breitbart_Savior

    I’m pissed.

    Everybody (in my family) who assaulted me was broke as @%$! and didn’t the wherewithal to advance my career. I was financially broke then and I still am.

    Who do you feel more sorry for??

  • 100milesperhour

    I read a long time ago he only has supervised visitation w/his 2 daughters. That explains why you’ll always see Kimora present in pics w/Russell & their daughters.

  • Noirluv45

    In my opinion, I think many of them think they won’t be believed. I think they are also afraid of retribution. Going up against a powerful person or corporation is risky. As we can see, when women come forward, many times they aren’t believed, especially rape victims, and their reputation and everything get’s dragged through the mud.

  • Elevated Soul

    I believe it…..Russelll Simmons is as fake as a $8.00 bill

  • PROPHETMAJOR

    I don’t put nothing past nobody! Hell look at the preachers/teachers/military folks raping women/men/children….I’ve seen and heard it all!

  • Noirluv45

    She’s also Lena Horne’s granddaughter.

  • Hmmm~?

    And as pretty as those two girls are, I’m sure he’s tried to touch them before. So sad.

  • hotntot95

    These young people don’t want to be blacklisted…so they go along with getting passed around in hopes of being chosen…it’s really messed up.

  • Yoni7

    BOOM! We got action!
    I read somewhere YESTERDAY that a TOP CELEB raped and exposed someone to HIV! Is this the SIGHT to the “blind item” I read?

    ^^^^^^^^^^^
    the shade. I know her as Lena’s granddaughter and I still aint forgot when you said Lena Horne was known for tryna pass as white.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    WHET???!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Noirluv45

    According to https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/writer-jenny-lumet-russell-simmons-sexually-violated-me-guest-column-1062934, she did not agree to go home with him or have sex with him.

    “You had a car and a driver that evening. Sometime later, you offered me a ride to my home. I said, sure. During the making of the RUN DMC movie, I had been in vans with you and other crew members. I don’t recall having accepted a ride home alone with you before that night.

    At no time that night did I say: “Russell, I will go home with you”. Or, “Come home with me.” Or “I will have sex with you.” Or “I have the desire to have sex with you.”

  • You Could Never

    Im so sorry Jenny. I believe you

  • YES I SAID IT…

    SMH sayin DAMN, I don’t understand why men have to rape women when there are so many chicks out there giving it up for free and willingly… I guess its a power thing BUT it is wrong and sick!

  • shun king

    black men rape their wives and girlfriends on a daily basis why wouldn’t they take it from female associates also

  • Paula Wilson

    She’s Lena Horne’s granddaughter

  • Noirluv45

    He or the driver locked the car doors so she couldn’t get out.

  • You Could Never

    This right here with Russ, bc this is the 2nd one, about to start the hip hop portion of the sexual crimes accusations. I been waiting for it. I knew it was coming.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    i believe her. fugg Russ!
    i also believe it’s typical behavior for these movers & shakers who are not used to hearing “NO”
    and even when they do, they don’t accept that it applies to them. same as in business, they take what they want, by force if necessary.

  • CaramelDrop

    This is just my opinion here but, everyone isn’t like some of us that feel “the fight will come with it” if someone tries to rape you. She was young, she is mostly white and was raised in Europe. The article reads she was rushed up stairs and shoved quickly into his apartment. Some just don’t have that fight in them. The driver locked the doors and windows at Russels command, he was rich/powerful…. I can see how that can be intimidating. Not to include they had went to dinner and he courted her. I’m sure Russell’s expensive lawyers would’ve brought that up.
    Hell, we (blacks) can have the dog sh!t best out of us ON CAMERA and STILL not receive justice. So I can understand how this could happen….

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    when Russ first popped up on the radar, i honestly expected it to be a young man coming forward *shrug*

  • Noirluv45

    I believe her too. After reading her account, I believed she was telling the truth.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I am so happy these fake gurus are getting exposed. He promotes a healthy lifestyle in Veganism and Yoga online but his spirit is not good.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    it’s painfully detailed, yet restrained… not sensationalized like a scripted piece of fiction. she been carrying this a LONG time.

  • Rayne

    Dang, I sholl believe her.

  • Yoni7

    I read it yesterday. Said dude threatened to anal rape her.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Whuuut???? Ima have to find this ‘blind item’…

  • Noirluv45

    Yes it is. You can feel every bit of emotion she experienced.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    all this!!!
    hell, you could be in a situation with your man, and if he suddenly changed up on you and became overly demanding and physically aggressive, i believe that would still bring about a certain degree of fear. fugg the fact that you “know” him – yeah, i know my man, but who is THIS thirsty, rapey bish who’s got me in a choke hold??????

    Uncle Russ is a glorified pervert

  • Coy little wink

    Chile…I’m not surprised…many men feel entitled…especially wealthy ones

  • Quitedeliteful

    I am so disappointed in Uncle Russ!!! Here he is pontificating about one love and eating healthy and being spiritual because your body is a temple yet he uses his power and fame to violate a young woman’s ‘temple’. The lid is being blown off of Hollywood Filth and I am here for it!!!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Idk if this is true or not, but Russel has been r..ping black people for a while now with that dam Rush card and all of those associated fees.

  • isaiit

    http://celebritybabies.people.com/2008/06/27/simmons-sisters/

    I found the story where he tries to justify those supervised visits…

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!! Now this is the truth!!!!

  • Noirluv45

    Stay tuned because there might be more to come.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Financial/ economic rape. They say Puffy did that to his artists on Bad Boy too.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Nah, I don’t think so. Well, at least the one I read, the accuser said that she was the celebs personal assistant and that he assaulted her multiple times.

  • Phillybruh

    I’m not sure what side to be on, sure I’m glad you found the strength, but someone was assaulted after you and you could have stopped it in 1997 or whatever, but you kept quiet. Because you benefited from it.

  • Vonn

    I’ve never liked that lispy fake swami. Never. He has always been creepy.

  • PhillyFacts

    I just cancelled my Rush card!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    The dominoes keep falling. But for every one that we hear about, there might be 50-100 we havent heard about yet. There’s a lot of nervous men in power now wondering if they’re going to be next.
    I’m totally here for it. I hope they all get exposed.

  • You Could Never

    Which was my response when it was said here back when

  • Noirluv45

    I read Mark Curry’s Dancing with the Devil and he spilled all the beans about Puffy and Bad Boy and how he screwed over everyone, including Biggy.

  • RAPIST

    I believe she was raped, and I believe there are more coming out against this freak……

  • JENNYJONES1

    RUSSELL WAS A SUPER BIG DEAL BACK THEN. THIS STORY MIGHT’VE BLACKBALLED HER AND HER DAD……….JENNY JONES!!!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Is this sarcasm? If not, why did you have a Rush card? Serious question…

  • Noirluv45

    Ditto!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Her recounting of events sounds like a script from a movie.
    I will save my sympathy for the next real victim.

  • SG

    Who isn’t a sexual predator???

  • Phillybruh

    He still rich.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Philly, you shoulda neva had a Rush card!!! LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!

  • CaramelDrop

    Lmao @ “thirsty rape bish!!! All these accusations have me rethinking my “encounters”. When I was 16 and allowed to leave the house alone with a boy (my eldest two kids dad) we went to see eat and go back to his house to chill. I sat in the den,met his parents we all chatted and then they left. As soon as they left he was on me like white on rice! We went from kissing to me being took fast – literally. I didn’t know what exactly was happening because it happened so fast. I cried, went home, soaked in scalding bleach water. Because of what my parents instilled in me about losing your virginity I thought me and the nicca had to be together – young and dumb and couldn’t talk to anybody about it. I don’t blame anybody. I kept it to myself because I shouldve never went inside his house – my mom did tell me that.
    I bet we all have situations of being raped in a sense and didn’t really view it that way. I know this is all probably TMI but I don’t think I have really thought of the definition of rape being something OTHER THAN a brutal sneak encounter….. her story helped me to realize there are many other forms of rape.

  • PhillyFacts

    She got out to go into the apartment. Once the doors unlocked at his place my instincts are always are fight or flight… either refuse to get out the car until he took me home or as soon as that door unlocked I would have mad a mad dash for it..

  • Phillybruh

    When I was 8 -13 I was raped by my cousin, I told my mother because he started going after my younger cousins.

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    It is so tragic.. Hollywoods dark underbelly is so corrupt and full of lost innocence .

  • You Could Never

    Im so sorry Philly. God bless you

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    How was he so young with ED?

  • Noirluv45

    Wow. What a story! That’s the thing about being young. Many young people lack judgment and then blame themselves or get blamed and called “fast.” We’ve all been there. My friend and I used to go over this grown man’s house when we were 14 and he was 27. Back in those days, everyone in the neighborhood knew each other, so we didn’t think twice about it. Well, one day, he held her down on the sofa and tried to kiss her. She was screaming and I was trying to free her from this pervert. Come to find out, he was known for having sex with underage girls. I still, to this day, remember his name.

  • You Could Never

    Who in the fukk upvoted this?!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    OMG do you have a reading comprehension problem?

    He said if she were raped she should have spoken out sooner to have prevent other potential rapes from occurring.

  • Quitedeliteful

    It does sound a little scripted but she’s probably telling the truth. What reason would she have to lie?? She’s wealthy so she doesn’t need fame or money from Uncle Russ plus no woman really wants to be put under the scrutiny that comes with these accusations…

  • guest

    OMG, SMDH…everything in the dark comes to light. I just wish these women would’ve have exposed these phucked up men when it happen!

  • Phillybruh

    Its cool just forgive me if I have little sympathy for people who keep their mouths closed.

  • You Could Never

    How you feel is just that. How you feel. And its okay.

    What you say is true but something about some of these stories seem off.

    oh my God, i hate you carried that burden around because you couldn’t talk to anybody. i think it happens more than we’d like to believe. and, like you said, it can happen quickly. i clearly recall an encounter i had with a guy who blamed me for making his ‘chester the molester’ personality come out.
    chile, i tussled with that big 6’2 mofo for a good solid 5 minutes! fortunately, he had a bad back and got tired of trying to unfurl me (i had basically balled myself into a knot, and kept yelling loud enough for his neighbors to maybe here me through the adjoining walls) LMAO!) when he moved off me to catch his breath, he sat back on the sofa and asked me why EYE made chester come out! i just looked at him, got up off the floor, opened the door, and staggered on home. i was SHOOK! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/92889c8c87c494548b7b7556dc6993ecdac82203a0c2510635c6ca9901d5e177.gif

    chile Russ been raping teens… He is another one of the Elites (so called) that will be brought down… all skeletons will come out… and I do mean all.. no one is exempt …? these very people are considered the tops in Hollywood even in politics and have been raping youngsters and adults … they have done all kinds of yes… black magic…. usually sexual rituals to accumulate their wealth and power …. and will be exposed ….

    This explains why he wanted T Crews to give a free “pass” to his abuser and let that man get back to work…?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I see your perspective, but not everybody reacts the same to sexual trauma. Some people as a coping mechanism just withdraw like a turtle into their shell.
    That’s just their way of surviving, keeping their sanity, and trying to establish some kind of healing and normalcy in their lives. Lets not be too hard on those people.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    the scary part is that we were sitting at his table having a quiet conversation one minute (not discussing anything sexual either), and the next minute he was ALL over me like a tornado!

  • Noirluv45

    Girl, I understand because it was a sight to see. It was frightening! I’m glad we got away intact too because from what I heard, others didn’t. SMH. It was so common back then (the 70’s and even today) for grown ass men to openly molest or accost young ladies/women. It was like walking to hell when you went to the store and grown men would be loitering drinking beer out of a paper and making nasty comments then they’d have the nerve to get an attitude if we rebuffed their advances. Ugh!

  • hotntot95

    It’s ugly…and it’s happening everywhere, everyday jobs..they all need to be exposed.

  • Django the God

    It seems like she felt pressured.
    I’m not going to say that’s all, but…

    She then said she didn’t recognize him, but remembered addresses, positions, etc.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    her plan may have actually been to attempt to escape once the car stopped and they got out. clearly he prevented her from doing that.

    shew, folks have mapped out plans for evacuating in case of emergency, but when something actually jumps off, you can lose your cool and end up running in circles instead of promptly making your way towards the exit (just saying)

  • Cici

    It’s like a new person being exsposed everyday now. Smh.

  • Phillybruh

    It doesn’t strike you as odd that all these women said nothing. Or better yet chose career over this happening to someone else. It benefited them until it didn’t anymore and now it does again. At some point we are going to stop taking these accusations at face value they wont mean anything. I’m a wake up tomorrow and Ruin somebody because they held me a little to tight in a picture 30 years ago its not fair.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Well, if it was a dramatic, live altering episode in her life, it wouldn’t shock me if she describes it “melodramatic” way; especially since she’s been around the arts all her life…that stuff is just deeply ingrained in her, as far as how she expresses herself.
    Anyway… I read her story and personally, it rings true to me. I totally believe her.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

  • Django the God

    Gotcha

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    The sad thing is, most of these men (Weinstein, Lauer, Uncle Russ etc etc) have children. How do you expect your kids (especially your daughters) to have any kind of respect for you after you get exposed for doing stuff like this?

  • Guess Who

    I believe her 100%

    He was a predator. His intense focus on transformation and presenting an image of transformation makes sense. He’s still not owning up to all his demons. He didn’t just assault and exploit women, he abused employees and aspiring artists and entrepreneurs and business people professionally and hurt them financially through blacklisting. His transformation makes complete sense.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Some of these comments are just kinda sad to me…

    I remember a girlfriend I had who once told me how her half brother had raped her when she was like 10 and he was 16. I never doubted she was telling the truth (especially the way she got all emotional talking about it). But she told me she never told anyone, not even her parents because she didn’t want him to get arrested, and didn’t want the situation to tear their family apart. So I recognize people have a variety of reasons for not reporting rape. Lets not judge people just because they didn’t handle the situation the way we think they could have or should have have handled it.

He also pandered to her status and made her feel above the possibility of assault like her family legacy protected her. That’s why she got into the car. Then he flipped the script. BTW, locking car doors is imprisionment. That was his first assault of her.

    First and foremost, we all know Russell was a heavy cocaine/heroine user back in the day, so this doesn’t surprise me AT ALL. Men using their power to intimidate and take advantage/rape women. I too have been a victim (by a co-worker)of a similar situation and I didn’t tell anyone because I really did think I led him on and how I shouldn’t have even took the offer of letting him take me home (it happened in the car). It wasn’t violent. I let him kiss me, didn’t want to go all the way tho, so he took it and I didn’t resist. I guess I was scared or scared of what might happen if I didn’t resist. Maybe I was in shock, I was just young and dumb. It was around 1988/89 as well. The word RAPE never even crossed my mind, I just took it as a learning experience to never get in the car/situations alone with men I don’t know etc…I think back in the 80s…90s (I was in my late teens early 20s) most women have probably been in similar situations….it is sad. Today, I do know it’s rape, but a part of me still questions if I or any woman has any responsibility to own up to in these particular situations….

    What she described is forcible rape. She was not a public figure (i.e. nothing to lose), and she would have been protected because of who her father was.

  • TMW

    I don’t think they considered it predatory behavior as much as it was just the way business has been done. I’m not saying it’s right, but the casting couch has always been a thing, and it always been a known thing.

    I just think had these women come forward sooner when it actually happened to them instead of waiting for 20 or more years, they could have prevented it from happening to so many others. By their silence for so many years, they accepted that it was the way things were done too, apparently.

    And I’m not victim blaming, I just really think all this bandwagon “me too” ish is whack.

    All these allegations, sometimes I think they are being exposed Now because the accusers Review is coming up. Not saying that’s what is going on with this situation, I’m just stating my opinion on this mess going on..

  • TMW

    Not judging but to me, this is just getting ridiculous. Matt Lauer has come forth and admitted to bad behavior, but also stated that some of the allegations against him are completely false. This man lost his job over an accusation! In this current atmosphere, nothing has to be proven. I do think motives for coming forward NOW, especially after decades have gone by, need to be looked at. I think we – society collectively – are doing a lot of judging and condemning of people based on what someone says happened before some of y’all were even born.

    Have you ever been raped? If you have not been raped or sexually assaulted then who are you to judge this woman and state what she should or should not have done? The reason why women do not go to law enforcement is out of fear of retaliation and shame.

  • cottonscandyheary

    He did raise that women dress up at the emmys. So dont say what he isnt capable doing. He did play on that gay movie with vivica foxx that was a straight flop.

    Of course you would see it as wack! The patriarchal system has normalized the objectification and abuse of women so all this ‘me too’ ish ( as you stated) is going to make everyone uncomfortable. If you have never been raped or sexually assaulted than you could never understand the fear and shame that stay with a person. There are tons of reasons ( most fear based) why a woman would not come forth, the main one being that no one CARES! You are naive if you think woman coming forth during a time when everyone is desensitized to the suffering of women, would have made any difference or stopped other women from being abused. The tide is turning there is a woman’s movement happening as we speak and I welcome it !It is about time !!! We will not be silenced no matter how uncomfortable or whack MEN might think it is. Namaste

  • Wreckognize Game

    How long before a guy comes forward saying they were the real life Marcus from Boomerang?

  • PhillyFacts

    Okay thanks!

  • TMW

    I’m not a man. Everyone has a voice, and yes I totally get fear as a reason why some don’t come forward, or even why some who didn’t come forward didn’t do so at that time because they felt somehow responsible because they were in a position with someone, like on a date or whatever. I’ve been there, before “no means no” no matter the situation was a thing.

    However, my concern with this current environment is that, as more women come forward and powerful men are losing their jobs based on what a woman says happened many years ago, we will become desensitized, just like so many are saying “another day, another new accusation” – that is the beginning of society starting to show it’s desensitization to the accusers and the accused.

    And I for one would not like to lose my job based on what somebody says happened 20 years ago without any due process. We as women say we want fairness and equality, but if this situation were reversed, would we want the consequence to be the same? That anyone can accuse us of anything, and without any proof whatsoever, they are found to be truthful? I wouldn’t.

  • MistaO

    Shit that supposedly happened decades ago? Many of these dudes either simps or plain guilty!

    This crap with Russell, no way I’d capitulate unless I was guilty or just a pandering simp. Which is it?

  • ViolettaBliss

    No one is taking away these men’s right to defend themselves! If you are wrongly accused, then you have every right to have your day in court. Bill Cosby has gone to court against his accuser and actually won. Trust me if these men are not standing up for themselves and just walking away from high powered jobs or like Russell removing themselves from their businesses it is because something is not clean in the milk. You think these companies want to fire these “high powered men”? No they don’t, it’s just when they are faced with so much evidence as in Matt Lauer’s case, they are forced to take action or be deemed part of the problem. I don’t agree that this is going to cause desensitization !!! The problem is that the world has always been desensitized to the abuse of women since the history of time. We are culturally trained to think it is ok to objectify and abuse women. If the situation were reversed I would totally want the consequences to be the same. Sexual assault is sexual assault regardless of the gender of the person committing it. Trust me these men are not getting fired without due diligence, that is not the way things work. I understand everyone’s discomfort with the current climate, it goes against everything that we have been programmed to believe. We’ve been brainwashed and now it’s time for everyone to wake up!!!!

    if im not guilty I wouldn’t leave my business I founded…smh

  • A D N

    I appreciate you sharing this story. I, 19 years old was wooed by a man while hanging with a girlfriend at a club (which I don’t care for) and gave him my number. He sweet talked me and told me how attractive and sexy I was. I was flattered and interested. He invited me to his place for dinner. I went over dressed in black jeans, a turtleneck shirt and some sneakers. After dinner, he invited me over to the couch to watch a movie. I agreed. He kissed me, I kissed him back. He reached for the breast. I whispered no. He tried again. I repeated no. I found myself a few minutes later, getting up from the floor pulling up my pants and feeling such a guilt of responsibility of his actions. Little did he know, I was on my period, not at all interested in sex, and just wanted to know him better. Little did I know that visit would turn into something different. I could get explicit, but let me say this to the guys first…sometimes, many times, when a woman still is clothed, she is not interested in getting penetrated. When a woman disrobes, she is sending a clear sign of yes. There are times she wants you to take off her clothes, and she will tell you its ok. But if you have to move her hands or find yourself using your strength, or she looks troubled, or she says no…then please stop, as difficult as it is. Besides, do you really want that type of sex? To the females, men are visual creatures. We are appealing and sexy to them. When they see our breasts, legs, feet, hair or whatever it takes for them to want to enter a procreation process, it is very challenging for them to look around or not be turned on. It’s nature. However, even when they are turned on, it gives them nooooo right to allow their positions of power (whether in the workplace or homeplace) to corner us and take from us the most precious goods given to us. Never the victim…

    They’ve already lost their jobs and their reputations. It would nice if that happened after they had a chance to go to court and defend themselves, not before. Bill Cosby went to court, yes, but what happened there has done nothing to restore his reputation or his job as an entertainer.

  • ?Royalty?

    I hate that this happened to you?, and getting a ride from a coworker seems like such an innocent thing – whether the mf’er lusted after you or not.
    In the late 80s early 90’s and I think it was perfectly normal not to expect your coworkers to be monsters, back then.
    Not so much now, tho. ? I gave a coworker a ride to his hotel after a work event. Never got out if the vehicle or went inside the hotel when I dropped him off, but I did agree to a date later. He never tried anything like that – thank God, we never got together like that but it’s been almost 4 years and this fruit loop is still stalking me. ?
    Its like, as a woman you cannot be too kind or rely on the kindness of others anymore. Everybody gets the side eye, even the pastor at your local church.

    Pushing an incident aside is often a coping mechanism. With me and Cosby, it took a couple of years for me to face it. In the industry I also wounded and angered a couple of producers while auditioning. My Mom had coached me and she was in attendance on all sound sets, except not in the room during my cartoon voice overs. First in all cases I was abruptly shocked.
    I come to work period. I don’t drink smoke, go to anyone’s private residence and still get caught up in the fukkery. It’s just as bad for me in the corporate world. I turned away from film and ended up in music in behind the scene production and writing. I cherished my integrity and fame couldn’t lure me from living my art. Fame is fleeting and overrated. I applaud every person telling their story. It is not for me to question the why, how, when. Human emotions and actions are unique to the individual. Jenny is a woman of character, always has been since we traversed the same circles. I only pray that the many coming forth will be the impetus for real change in our society.

    I believe her and I believe you and I’m sorry you experienced this first hand. And you are brave even to tell your story here. Like I said somewhere below, in this current environment, stories like hers and yours can get lost in the shuffle as people become desensitized to the sensationalism of it all. I think a powerful part of the story that is not being told is why these women did not share their stories sooner. If a woman lives long enough at some point a man is going to do something that makes her uncomfortable to varying degrees. Instead of just getting their stories out there, they need to be encouraging women to come forward sooner than later. This lady’s story would have been even more powerful, and yes I do believe it would have prevented Russell from doing it to someone else, if only because he would have done time for kidnapping and rape.

The one chick on RHO Potomac wrote about she was living with him and he brought other girls home to bang while she slept alone. He’s a pig. Believe me, there will be a long list of women coming out with stories about him. That’s why he’s stepping down. He’s DISGUSTING!!! And so is Matt Lauer!!

  • http://www.nicolaloves.com/ NicolaLoves

    Have you ever read the transcripts of a rape trial? Or even the media coverage. The rapist history is never allowed because it’s prejudicial, but everything the victim went to, did or wore in the decade previous, is brought to light.

    The courts have a history of implying that unless a woman is a virgin she is lying. And even when she’s a virgin, she is still questioned.

    If I claimed you robbed my house or stole my car, no one would judge my past history. They would look at the facts, was the property taken. Yes. Were you in the area? Is there proof you were in my house? With rape, a whole other ballgame.

    it’s sometimes easier, especially when dealing with rich and powerful men, to lick your wounds and stay quiet. Unfortunately, they know this, that’s why they don’t stop.. . until now.

    Russell Simmons hurt women personally and professionally in many ways. He’s also hurt men, young black men, professionally in a lot of devious ways. He’s hurt careers and derailed dreams for sport. He was not a good person. Back in the day his pioneering rags to riches hip hop success gave a lot of black people hope and he abused black folks awe of him. Men who worked for him, black and white, were no better. They all chased underage girls and barely legal 18 and 19 year old teen girls and everyone turned their heads for a paycheck.

    Removing his name, but not his partnership interest in the shows. They take his name off the credits, but his company, All Def Digital, produces the show. He will continue to get paid for all episodes as both creator and producer, we just won’t see his name in the credits.

    Yes they are trying to do some damage control.

  • NeverSurprised

    Thinking they can just remove his name and try to ride this thing out. The real test will come if additional women come forward ( especially any who were minors at the time of their claims). If it gets too hot, they will have no choice but to cancel the show entirely.
