Russell Simmons Denies S*xual Assault Allegations In New Interview

Tiffany Brockworth |

Russell Simmons has been accused by several women of sexual assault and other crimes, but in a new interview, he says he was a “hoe” back in the day but that he is not a r*pist.

“I was quite frivolous. You know, there’s a song by Whodini, you know? ‘I’m a hoe, I’m a hoe, three different girls after every show.’ Culturally, we thought that was the right way. And the number of sexual partners and compromising positions I put myself in is beyond anybody’s imagination,” he says in the clip.

He continued: “I think it was cultural, and silly, and egotistic, and sad, and from an insecurity that feeds it. There’s a lot of reasons why we were that way. If you slept with as many people as I slept with, thousands, we’re only talking about six people. I spoke poorly to 15 of them. I mean, 12 of them. I spoke poorly all the time. I’m a Def Comedy Jam guy. I was crude. So how many compromising situations was I in?”

Simmons has not faced any criminal charges for any of the allegations. He says he took several lie detector tests to prove his innocence.

“I can simply tell you, I was in so many compromising situations. People can have a recollection from 30 or 40 years ago, and it can be different from my recollection. I took nine lie detector tests, people don’t know that. Nine separate…seven from the Chairman of the Polygraph Association. One for each and serious accusation.”
