Russell Simmons‘ ex-wife Kimora Lee has something to say about the rape allegations he is facing.
Numerous women (including a cast member from MTV’s ‘The Hills’) have accused the mogul of sexual assault following the rise of the #MeToo movement which has inspired sexual abuse survivors to name and shame their attackers.
Things worsened for Simmons when the beloved actor Terry Crews revealed that he had made efforts to convince Crews to drop his efforts to bring his abuser, Adam Venit, to justice.
Today, Kimora has weighed in.
I have known Russell for over 25 years. We were close friends, married, divorced and have remained friends, co-parents and partners throughout it all. These allegations against him are nothing like the person I have known in all that time. I have known him to be a caring and supporting father and someone who has worked tirelessly to uplift disenfranchised communities.
She published the statement above days after he was slapped with a brand new allegation.
