Russell Simmons Denies Sexual Assault Claims Made In HBO Documentary

Russell Simmons sat down for an interview with The Breakfast Club, where he once again denied allegations that he raped and sexually assaulted more than two dozen women.

The allegations resurfaced following the recent release of the HBO Max documentary, On The Record.

Several of his alleged victims detailed their eerily similar experiences with the former music mogul — but Simmons says he is only guilty of being a player.

I have not watched it, but I’m aware,” Simmons told Charlamagne Tha God. “I know what I’m guilty of. And I’ve been unconscious, as a playboy, and today the title is appropriate of womanizer. So I’m guilty of that.”

Simmons also added that he was disappointed to hear that Oprah Winfrey walked away from the doc.

“Enter Queen Oprah, who herself is an investigative journalist,” Simmons added. “And I said, ‘It’s absolutely no way she’s gonna go forward when I present her with 30 witnesses, or so, who came forward after they saw their friends and children and parishioners on television.’ And so I felt very confident she’d walk away. She walked away, and she did say that the stories had inconsistencies.”
