Russell Simmons has stepped down from his businesses in response to screenwriter Jenny Lumet's account of a dreadful encounter she had with the music mogul back in 1991.

Last week, the Def Jam Recordings co-founder denied allegations made by Keri Claussen Khalighi, who accused him of sexual assault and harassment in a November 19 article in the Los Angeles Times.

The denial, in which Simmons claimed he "would never knowingly cause fear or harm to anyone," prompted Lumet, daughter of filmmaker Sidney Lumet, to share her own fearful experience with Simmons.

In a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter, the Rachel Getting Married scribe recalled Simmons offering her a ride home from a club one night in 1991.

Russell Simmons Pens Response To Sexual Assault Allegations — 'I Never Committed Any Acts Of Aggression Or Violence In My Life'

Russel Simmons

Russell Simmons is standing by his claim that his sexual relationship with Keri Claussen Khalighi back in 1991 was consensual.

In a letter posted on The Hollywood Reporter, the 60-year-old refuted the allegations reiterated today on Megyn Kelly TODAY by the former model.

The music mogul said that although he believes the majority of the women coming forward in the #MeToo movement are "true and dignified," these have been "cast in a light away from the actual facts."

Keri Claussen Khalighi

Russell Simmons' accuser continues to speak out.

As we reported earlier this week, the Los Angeles Times published a bombshell article in which former model Keri Claussen Khalighi alleged Simmons assaulted her when she was 17 years old in 1991. Khalighi claimed that she went out for dinner with Simmons and fellow accused assaulter Brett Ratner. The three allegedly returned to Simmons' apartment where the rap mogul attempted to force her to have sex with him, but eventually gave up and pressured her into oral sex. Later, she said Simmons assaulted her again while she was taking a shower.

On Wednesday, the former model — who is expecting her third daughter — appeared on Megyn Kelly TODAY to discuss the incident in detail.

A bombshell new report out today in the Los Angeles Times accuses Russell Simmons of teaming up with his longtime friend Brett Ratner to engage in alleged sexual harassment and assault of multiple women.

The Times' report out today revealed that it wasn't just Ratner who was allegedly sexually assaulting and harassing women, as were the allegations we'd known about for some time now — but his friend, music mogul Simmons was also involved.

One woman, named Keri Claussen Khalighi, has come forward with a story that when she was 17 years old and working as a fashion model, she had dinner one night in 1991 with Simmons and Ratner after a casting call.

After dinner, the pair took Khalighi to Simmons' apartment to show her a music video they had been working on, but once they got there, Simmons and Ratner began getting extremely sexually aggressive — and, the model alleges, Simmons ripped off her clothes as Ratner watched.
