Russell Simmons is facing another rape allegation and a $10 million lawsuit.
In court documents filed and obtained by Page Six on Friday, a woman accused the disgraced hip-hop mogul, 60, of sexually assaulting her in a hotel room and threatening to rape her son if she didn’t comply.
The woman, referred to only as Jane Doe in the suit, says she and her elementary school-aged son were attending a concert in Sacramento for an artist who worked with the Def Jam founder, when he invited them to go backstage. She then accompanied Simmons to his hotel bar and a nightclub after dropping off her son with a babysitter.
The woman claims she later returned with Simmons — who has been at the center of sexual assault accusations for months — to his hotel, but says he assured her he wasn’t interested in having sex with her, as he was in a relationship with a “well-known” model. But after “reluctantly” joining him in his room, she claims he shut the door and told her, “I am going to f–k you.”
“[The] Plaintiff said she had no intention of having sexual relations with Simmons — but he replied ‘I am going to f–k you or I’m going to f–k your son. You decide,’” according to the lawsuit, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.
She alleges that he threw her on the bed and raped her. She is now seeking at least $10 million in damages over allegations of forcible rape and emotional distress.
“As a father of a young daughter, I am grateful to my client and the other women who have had the courage to bring these cases that will help make the world safer for women everywhere,” the woman’s lawyer, Douglas Mastroianni, told Page Six on Friday.
