NYPD investigating Simmons rape allegations

Share

Several women have now come forward to accuse Simmons of sexual misconduct, including claims of rape.

Cutrone, a TV personality and founder of fashion PR company People's Revolution, told Page Six on Thursday that Simmons attempted to rape her in 1991 at his apartment. Dixon claimed that Simmons raped her in 1995 when she was 24 years old.

"And I started kicking him really, really hard, screaming, telling him to get the fuck off of me", she added. "And that I would have him killed if he ever fucking laid a hand on me".

Cutrone ran out and left in a cab, wondering whether or not to call the police. She fought him off but "the energy of going to the police and pressing charges against him was overwhelming to me".

Reportedly, Eva's boyfriend, Michael Sterling, will defend Russell Simmons amid the allegations which forced Russell to step down from his businesses.

"I hope he chokes on his om pendant", Cutrone said. He posted his words under a photo that read #NotMe.

Winter weather advisory issued for Wednesday in central Wisconsin
Areas east and then southeast of Lake Ontario will be line for the steadiest and heaviest lake snow tonight and Wednesday. Weather conditions during this period will likely lead to snow-covered, slippery roads, especially in more rural areas.

Along with Cutrone, number of women have accused Simmons of improper sexual conduct, including three women who alleged in a New York Times report that Simmons raped them.

In late November, before the latest wave of allegations leveled against him, Simmons issued a lengthy statement in response to one accuser.

The NYPD announced today that it's investigating the claims brought against Simmons, at least four of which involve rape.

Tina Baker, an '80s pop singer who was managed by Simmons and said that he raped her in his NY apartment in late 1990 or early 1991, said that she had been contacted by a detective from the Police Department's Special Victims squad.

Cutrone, 52, grew up in Camillus and graduated from West Genesee High School and Syracuse University. A veteran music industry insider, speaking under the condition of anonymity told the Daily Beastthat the Russell Simmons allegations are just the tip of the iceberg.

Enter the next day, where Simmons again took to Instagram using the hashtag #NotMe - an obvious response to the #MeToo movement that's now ushering in a wave of repercussions for powerful men in the entertainment industry never before seen. "#NotMe Again, this is not a movement against or even in conjunction with #Metoo", he continued.
