Russell Simmons Steps Down From Def Jam For Sexual Misconduct Allegations

The iconic Russell Simmons, music executive and founder of Def Jam Records, has just stepped down from all of his companies after a woman stepped forward accusing Simmons of sexual misconduct during an alleged encounter back in 1991 according to reports. In an open letter with The Hollywood Reporter, screen-writer Jenny Lumet recalled her alleged inappropriate encounter with the music executive, dating back to a night in 1991 that led to the two returning to Simmons’ home.

“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.”- Jenny Lumet
