Subsequently the music mogul has spoken up to “vehemently deny” the new accusations. He told USA Today:

“I vehemently deny all these allegations. These horrific accusations have shocked me to my core and all of my relations have been consensual. The current allegations range from the patently untrue to the frivolous and hurtful. The presumption of ‘innocent until proven guilty’ must not be replaced by ‘Guilty by Accusation.'”

Well, if Donald Trump has taught us anything, it’s that the consistent denial defense does seem to work. At least it has so far.

What do YOU think about Russell’s latest statement?
