Russell Simmons

Russell Simmons has begun unloading his multi-million dollar property portfolio that he doesn't want to lose in potential lawsuits after a plethora of women accused him of sexual misconduct.

The 60-year-old music mogul listed the peaceful 6,085 sq. ft. Spanish style mansion in the Hollywood Hills for $8.25 million in July. The home quickly sold a month later for $8.15 million, according to published reports.

Simmons purchased the 5-bedroom, 6.5 bath manse five years ago for $5,877,500. The house features a 1500-bottle capacity wine cellar, a cigar room, and an outdoor kitchen that seats 8 near the Olympic sized swimming pool.

The once powerful movie and publishing magnate ran afoul of the #MeToo movement after multiple women came forward to accuse him of sexual assault.

Within weeks of the allegations, Simmons stepped down as CEO of his various companies and foundations.

Simmons vigorously denied the allegations before fleeing the country on board his private jet. He has been hiding out in Bali, where he claims to be "spiritually learning" and cleansing his mind of unsure thoughts.

One of the reasons Bali is currently home to Simmons is it does not have an extradition treaty with the United States.

In between Yoga sessions, Simmons is busy listing more million-dollar properties.

Also in July he listed his impressive 7,200 square-foot Duplex penthouse in downtown New York City for $9.925 million. The penthouse which he has owned for over a decade boasts four bedrooms, 4 baths plus a staff bedroom and bath, two kitchens and a screening room off the massive 1,100 sq. ft. living room.

Simmons has a few more properties to unload before he can relax his mind when the lawsuits begin flying.

    Russ on the run to Bali. Protecting the Bag.

  • davine puddin

    They warned kamora to stay away from russ. Also when he was on that reality show her refered to two women as bitches. In my Kanye West song voice from the song Bam. Instead of saying now we know Brandi lil sisters lame. Id say now we know why kamora added in the divorce decree he wasnt allowed to visit with his girls alone

  • Alextra Ballard

    The older Russell gets the more creepier he looks...At this stage of the game,if any female over 18 get with Russell is for monetary gain. Iono why old meniz like these young wimmen

  • T3

    Get it!!

  • Alextra Ballard

    Wdf?!?! Wait..so Russell is Pedophile,an alleged Rapist and had incestuous tendencies?Hmmm I'm wondering when Kimora found out

  • Renee26

    That's more than likely what he will do too...considering he left the states right after the news broke

  • Alextra Ballard

    Noww I see why back in the day people usta say "old men give you worms"....they really don't have worms. It was basikcally a "scare tactic" to scare you incase you were ever approached by their old nasty low down asses. They knew back then some where straight pedophiles. Blessum

  • ?? Kari ?????????

  • We Can Do This

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Never liked Russell Simmons, NOW, I KNOW WHY! Then he targeted a certain type, like Lena Horn’s granddaughter, allegedly!

  • TMW

    He’s not coming back to the U.S. on any permanent basis.

    That's because he's into the whole Zen thing. I'm sure he told the decorator to make it as "zenlike" as possible, since he's all into the yoga thing and the spiritual thing. I'm shocked someone with his beliefs and tastes is such a pervert.

  • TMW

    OT: Sandra can we get a story about the PA mother of 5 Tammy Fox that died because her boyfriend cut her brake lines to make a crack pipe?

  • DETROITTOATL

    WHATTTT!!!

  • RentEmSpoons

    Shit after hearing what Amanda seales said about him on the breakfast club, i see why he is bolting. Dont know how true it is, but heard Uncle Rush pulled Kimora when she was 1just 16.

    He just sold the Rush Card business for $167 M's last year, smart move on his part, because those allegations will probably come like a hail storm.

  • RentEmSpoons

    They coming, Unc just ahead of the storm.

  • TMW
  • Trace da Ace

    omg yes!! I just read that!! crazy ass crack heads!!

  • Li-Wright

    If he hasn't already, he's going to roll it all up in a trust fund so it can't be touched.

  • TMW

    I am so confused. So you just randomly start hacking under the car???

  • Ms..N

    Lawsuits will make you liquidate with the quickness!! Lol

  • Malcom Flex

    Uncle Russ lives large
    Warning side eye all the preachers and so called yogi's, etc. The 'serene' men are usually lying, abusers.

  • Malcom Flex

    Yes he got with Kimora when she was a teen I was reading about them.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Exactly.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I didn't take the picture, hun.

  • the guest

    Agreed!

    There was a huge scandal years ago where the yogi founder of a very famous yoga retreat center (located in the outskirts of the town where Chelsea Clinton was married) was exposed for being predatory. The yogi founder was using the retreat to target young girls. Russell Simmons is not the only one. That new age scene is filled with predators and scammers.

    For a minute, I thought Russell was innocent, but the liquidation and hiding in non extradition country speaks volumes of a guilty person.

    But if he could abuse and swindle working poor people like he did with that predatory RUSH card, then he is capable of other kinds of abuse.

  • the guest

    Kimora was actually 15 when Russell sought her out and pursued her. He went public with her when she turned 18. People were so warped back in the day everybody considered 15 year old Kimora to be lucky to be with a man in his mid 30's because he was rich and running hip hop.

  • the guest

    Lord have mercy.

  • the guest

    He'll be living in Bali forever.

  • the guest

    He has a thing for young fair skinned mixed girls.

  • the guest

    Kimora was like 100% sole legal, physical, everything custody. Russell didn't even get visitation. He left it to her to schedule when he could see their daughters. Wealthy powerful men NEVER give up that kind of control of their children, unless...

  • the guest

    The bag. He's trying to stay out of prison.

  • the guest

    Blanche doing the hold the rib cage stomp the feet belly laugh.

  • the guest

    Bali and Croatia don't extradite under any circumstance.

    People think Dubai has no extradition but Dubai does extradite to the US. Mexico also extradites which is why it's stupid that people run to Mexico.

  • the guest

    Lord have mercy.
