Music Mogul Russell Simmons Accused of Rape by Model, Then 17 Years Old; Now Accused by Second Woman
— Ace

Flashback to a story I didn't post on:
The rape allegedly occurred with Brett Ratner present.

Serendipity.

The model says she begged Ratner, "Help me," when Simmons began to rape her, but then realized they were acting in concert.

Allegedly.

Interestingly, after this news dropped, Terry Crews -- who recently named the agent who groped his penis -- released this email from Simmons, asking Crews to give the groper a "pass:"



Russell Simmons released a statement insisting that the sex was consensual and that also he's totally enlightened or something.

Now Jenny Lumet (daughter of Sydney) tells her own story, in an open letter addressed to Russell Simmons.

I got into the car with you. The driver began to drive. I assumed you knew where I lived, because you had sent me 250 balloons, but I gave the driver my address on 19th Street and 2nd Avenue.

You said to the driver: "No."

I didn't understand, so I said: "Russell?"

I said, again, to the driver: "19th Street."

Again you said to the driver: "No."

Then the car doors locked. It was loud. The noise made me jump.

I didn't recognize you at that moment. It was disorienting. It was disorienting. I say it twice now because you said "No" twice then.

I couldn't open the doors. I couldn't open the windows. The car was moving. The driver did not stop. He did not take me to 19th Street. He took me to your apartment.

I didn't try to kick the windows out. I didn't punch or kick. I didn't say, "What are you doing?" My voice left me after the second "No."

I felt dread and disorientation. I wanted to go home. I said I wanted to go home. I didn't recognize the man next to me. I didn't know if the situation would turn violent. I remember thinking that I must be crazy. I remember hoping that the Russell I knew would return any moment.

The car stopped at the curb. I don't recall the street. I recall the driver opening the door from the outside, and you behind me. I was between the two of you. Not wedged, just in the space between you. I remember exchanging a look with the driver. He was unreadable. It was chilly out. It was me and these two men.

I felt dread. I was tremulous. Off my feet. I felt an intense need to keep both of you calm. Was there a time or a space to run? I have no idea. Would somebody else have run? I have no idea. There were two men. One of whom obeyed the other. It was an overwhelming feeling.

There was no well-lit lobby or doorman at the entrance we used. I would guess it was not the main entrance to the building. I believe there was a door from street level that opened into a space beneath the residential area of the building, in which there was a small back elevator. If I am wrong about the layout, then I am wrong. There were two men, and I was afraid.

You didn't punch me, drag me or verbally threaten me. You used your size to maneuver me, quickly, into the elevator. I said, "Wait. Wait." I felt dread. I was very, very sad. I didn't know if the driver was a further threat, or an ally. I was both relieved and terrified when he did not get into the elevator. Alone in the elevator, you pressed me into the corner with your body, your hands and your mouth.

The elevator did not stop on the way up to your apartment. I was moved very quickly inside. I recall hearing the apartment door closing behind us.

I saw no one else. I recall you were behind me. I was still hoping the Russell I knew would reappear, as I could not recognize the man moving me deeper into the apartment -- the man who had said "No" to his driver. Twice.

You moved me into a bedroom. I said, "Wait." You said nothing.

I made the trade in my mind. I thought, "Just keep him calm, and you'll get home." Maybe another person would have thought differently, or not made the trade.

It was dark but not pitch-dark. You closed the door.

At that point, I simply did what I was told.

There was penetration. At one point you were only semi-erect and appeared frustrated. Angry? I remember being afraid that you would deem that my fault and become violent. I did not know if you were angry, but I was afraid that you were.

Pretty horrifying. Here is part of Simmons' statement about the alleged rape. See if you can see any similarities between this statement and Al Franken's and Matt Lauer's and all the rest of them:

I have been informed with great anguish of Jenny Lumet's recollection about our night together in 1991. I know Jenny and her family and have seen her several times over the years since the evening she described. While her memory of that evening is very different from mine, it is now clear to me that her feelings of fear and intimidation are real.

So once again: I deny your recollection, which differs from my own, but my Crisis Communications adviser tells me to validate your feelings (while calling you either a liar or a delusional hysteric).

A lot of that going on lately.

Russell Simmons has now stepped down from his position as head of his businesses (though I'm sure he'll still draw income from them), as HBO and JC Penny distance themselves from him.

HBO had announced a new "Def Comedy Jam" in association with Russell Simmons even after the first rape allegation. Now it says they'll remove Simmons' name from the show and he won't appear on it -- but they're still doing the show, and Simmons will still get paid.

They claim they don't want to deprive comics of the opportunity. Is it necessary that the show have the Def Comedy Jam imprimatur? Can't HBO just call another black comic, like Kevin Hart, and do a Kevin Hart's New Kings of Comedy or something? The way Rodney Dangerfield used to brand his own shows of young comics?

Not even close to enough, HBO. Not even close.

Also, the woman behind their very successful documentaries, Sheila Nevins, happily admitted to sleeping with bosses to get ahead in her autobiography earlier this year.

It must lead to a space where women and also men can heal, even if it means attacking me. I remain an activist for women's rights and all things unjust. This is my life's work and journey, and God knows my heart. To all the #MeToo campaigns and women around the world, I support your healing and will continue to be an honest and imperfect advocate for the voiceless (including animals) and humanity as a whole."

The message from people actually opposed to rape should be "if you've been raped, go to the police immediately" not "teach men not to rape". Hell, all these predators would have been cheering "teach men not to rape" because it turns them from monsters to just ignorant guy's like all the rest. It's COVER for rapists, especially those connected and "on the correct side".

79 Matt could probably get the money since he knows that the executives at NBC knew all about his behaviors for years. In fact, wouldn't be surprised if there aren't a lot of Matt's bosses (actually he was so valuable to them that he didn't really have bosses) with automatic locks on their doors. When you owe the bank a million dollars you've got a problem. When you owe the bank a billion dollars the bank has a problem.

90 They way these guys are handling the accusations is about 180 from the way you should be handling it. Even if you did it, you don't handle it this way. I'm amazed this is the advice they're getting from crisis teams they're likely paying six to seven figures to for help. I'm betting the crisis teams are run by women. Nothing else explains it. Why are you admitting to anything? It's the equivalent of all those real crime shows where you see the suspect sitting in an interrogation room for hours on end as a stream of trained cops come in and grill them. They always break down and that life sentence follows. NEVER ADMIT TO ANYTHING. Ever. EVER. Lawyer up. Surround yourself with impenetrable walls of suits. Take a vacation. Turn off your phone. Do anything except come out with a statement where you say you did it but you know not in that way. It's too late. You just admitted it. A famous case is the Ramsey family after their daughter turned up dead in the basement. The whole case positively reeks of the murderer being someone in the house. The ransom note is a fucking joke and was written inside the house with materials found in the house. The number of times the FBI found a note of that length in a kidnapping written at the crime scene? Zero. But they lawyered up and controlled their appearances. They didn't even talk to the cops until much later. A whiff of guilt hangs over the family, but they're free as birds and can have a life. These ass clowns are totally killing themselves by trying to fall on the tender mercies of people who will have none of it. Fucking retards. I'll run your crisis team and I'll do it for 100k.

Someone posted a lengthier article on the Simmons a while back (I think on a morning report) that detailed how Ratner would regularly procure models for Simmons when he was an up and coming music video director and Simmons served as a kind of mentor/father figure to Ratner.

219 The problem with the Steinle case is that the prosecution had to admit that the bullet which struck her had ricocheted off the ground, rather than striking her directly. Almost impossible to prove specific intent to cause her harm with that set of facts. He should have been charged with voluntary manslaughter, aggravated, with the prosecution insisting on a maximum sentence. Mistake.

268 Sounds like a jury full of We'll Show Donald Drumpf! Sad. The feds could do a lot here, though. Civil Rights violations alone could lock the guy up for a few years. Catch him lying about something and that's another bunch of years. There was a case years ago about a guy named Mel Ignatow. He killed his girlfriend and took pictures of it and had some scummy ex-girlfriend help him bury her body. The jury acquitted him and a couple of years later a worker in his old house found the pictures hidden in an air vent. The feds got him on a number of charges. I think he ended up doing about ten years total. Not good enough, really, but considering the situation it was better than nothing. Some poetic justice years later. Ignatow had tied his girlfriend to a table to torture her and murder her as seen in the photographs. Igantow ended up dying by falling and hitting his head on a glass table in his apartment. He bled to death.

273 Net Neutrality is treating the Internet like a public utility. Like your water company, power company, or how Ma Bell was treated up until the 1970's, when MCI began to take it to court, leading to its break up. My argument against it is that technology is changing too damn fast as of now for case law to keep up, let alone statutory law.

274 The Drudge link has this: "The jury had a number of choices to make. They could have gone with a second degree verdict, involuntary manslaughter or consider a first degree murder verdict.

In his part of California, zoning and permitting laws are zealously enforced against white middle class citizens, while illegals build shantytowns complete with illegal electrical hookups and dump trash on the roadside without a peep from the authorities.

Posted by: JackStraw at November 30, 2017 07:49 PM (/tuJf) I was on a jury in the Bay Area, in a civil matter, where jurors literally wanted to find for the plaintiff because he was black ("he probably needs the money") and the doctor was Jewish ("he's got lots of money"). The facts of the case notwithstanding. It was kind of the Super Bowl of prejudice.

290 Blondie invented rap? Sh****t (Golly!) Posted by: Sugar Hill Gang at November 30, 2017 07:12 PM (QLvwG) Debbie Harry may not have invented rap but she was a powerful artistic and cultural force in New York in her heyday in the mid- to late Seventies. She once did a photo shoot directed by Giger, the artist whose work inspired the look of the Alien movies. She was incredibly beautiful. Of course, every time I think about Debbie Harry, I also think about her in Cronenberg's Videodrome. I'll be in my bunk.

Hey, remember those bad old days where communities would enact their own justice, either by necktie party or by beating a perp near to death and running him out of town?

Sure glad we've gotten so much more civilized.  The streets are far safer now.

294 Poor thing.  I think the statutes have run on the rape.  With him walking and getting richer after her, I bet there are a number more victims.  Here is hoping they come out with prosecutable cases and the LA PD/DA does not sell  out like the Bev Hills PD did for Don Henley and many, many others.

If you want the inside skinny on Hollywood sickos, go to crazydaysandnights for the "Blind Items" where rumours are told and you get to guess who the celeb is. 

If I were younger, I would start a band called Hollywood Predators and Rapists and the first song would be "The Devil Digs Him Some Sunset Boulevard Runaways To Go With His Mexican Cartel Party Favours"
