#Roommates, #RussellSimmons is facing new allegations of sexual assault that he isn’t taking lightly. According to @TMZ_TV, in efforts to protect his reputation, he has taken a lie detector test to prove he did not sexually assault one of his accusers #KeriClaussenKhalighi. Though other women are now coming out, Russell’s lawyers have confirmed he has passed the first polygraph test and will be releasing results once he’s completed tests for the other allegations.
Since the news of the allegations broke, NYPD SVU has officially opened an investigation and will be looking into the alleged claims. As of now, the count is up to 7 women who are accusing him of either sexual misconduct or rape.
Simmons denies all claims and is adamant that he is innocent and any sexual encounters have all been both lawful and consensual.
With the current climate we are in, allegations alone can be damaging to anyone’s reputation guilty or not. I guess only time will tell what’s what #Roommates.
