Another Woman Accuses Russell Simmons of Rape, Bringing Total Allegations to Over a Dozen

Russell Simmons Me Too Sexual Assault Rape

Russell Simmons has been accused of rape by another woman, bringing the number of sexual assault allegations against the hip-hop mogul to over a dozen. Alexia Norton Jones, granddaughter of the book publisher W.W. Norton, claims Simmons assaulted her in New York City in November 1990.

According to Variety, Jones filed a police report with the NYPD from her Arizona home earlier this year but because the attack took place nearly three decades ago, it’s outside the statue of limitations in New York for felonies. Now she’s shared her story with the publication, detailing the attack. She writes that after their date, Simmons wanted to show her his new apartment—one she says he recently purchased from “a well-known pop star.” She alleges he penetrated her without a condom, despite telling him “no” multiple times:

Within a few minutes, he got what he thought was amorous. What was shocking to me was that it wasn’t. It was one of these things, where he had so many hands on me. But he only has two hands. It began with us kissing. There was something about kissing him, his heart was racing. It seemed out of pace, like he wasn’t relaxed. My mind went to, “Is he on something?” I also thought, “How could I be such an idiot?” Here I am, I’m trusting him. I had been a survivor of sexual abuse as a young teenager.

I didn’t want to go further. It was such a fast attack. It was literally an attack. Because he was overweight, I remember thinking it was like being attacked by a flabby walrus. I remember being pushed up against a wall. He pulled my dress up. I must have said no seven to 10 times, and then I acquiesced. It was very fast. I would say it happened in less than 10 minutes.

She continues:

When I saw him out after that, I wouldn’t even look him in the eyes. I thought he was garbage. But he still had the compunction to call me. I became very depressed. It eroded my self-esteem. This is the worst message that it sends, that somebody could in a different circumstance like you but think you are worthless. And he can just take it from you. It’s like the murder of the soul.

Simmons responded with the following statement:

“I’m deeply saddened by this story from Alexia. At no time did she share these feelings about her first sexual encounter with me, which took place roughly 28 years ago. I have taken multiple lie detector tests that affirm I never sexually assaulted anyone. Alexia and I dated, were intimate and attended multiple events together after she alleges the incident occurred in 1990. I considered her a friend for all these years and continue to have a warm relationship with members of her family. I believe we last spoke in 2006 when she called to express her disappointment over the fact that I had not attended an event honoring her father.”
