She said it was back there that Simmons allegedly began to make "aggressive sexual advances" and took off her clothes, while Ratner did nothing to help. She alleges Simmons again tried to penetrate her while she was taking a shower shortly after the initial incident. She said that Simmons once asked her to bring him a toothbrush, and when she said someone else would bring him one, he persisted.

Khalighi said that Simmons tried to force her to have intercourse with him and that she "fought wildly" until he relented and pressured her into oral sex.

Simmons, 60, released a statement to the Times saying what occurred between them happened "with her full consent and participation" and claiming that most of their time together was spent in the company of others.

During this disturbing encounter, she claimed that Ratner sat there and watched and did not answer or intervene as she cried for help. Singer said of the incident with Khalighi that Ratner has "no recollection" of her asking him for help and didn't see her "protest". A previous Times piece from November 1 also detailed the claims of six others.

"As a long-time social activist, I have applauded the strength of the courageous men and women who have spoken out over the past month and made their voices heard regarding sexual assault and harassment". "That's also why it was so vindicating, because it was there, acknowledged".

Simmons denied the allegation in a statement posted to Twitter and said that anything that occurred between the two of them was consensual. Let me be crystal clear and very direct. "Abusing women in any way shape or form violates the very core of my being", Simmons wrote. Simmons attorney provided a signed statement from Simmons' former assistant Anthony "Mac" McNair who said he saw Khalighi go to Simmons' bedroom "on her own volition and without any coercion or undue influence". "As a long-time social activist, I have applauded the strength of the courageous men and women who have spoken out over the past month and made their voices heard regarding sexual assault and harassment".

Simmons, in his statement on Sunday morning, said he knows Khaligi and remembers spending time with her one weekend in 1991, but denies that he assaulted her. "He was willing to do anything to be of use..." Russell Simmons is now facing sexually assault allegations along with his buddy movie and music video director Brett Ratner.

Ratner stands accused of varying degrees of predatory behavior by several actresses, including Natasha Henstridge, Jaime Ray Newman, Ellen Page, Katharine Towne, and Olivia Munn. This month, Ratner's relationship with Warner Bros. was severed as he is under internal investigation.
