"At no time that night did I say: 'Russell, I will go home with you, '" Lumet writes.
Music mogul Russell Simmons is reportedly stepping down from his various business enterprises following a fresh allegation of sexual assault leveled by screenwriter JennyLumet, the daughter of filmmaker Sidney Lumet.
Jenny Lumet, the screenwriter daughter of the late movie director Sidney Lumet, in a Thursday Hollywood Reporter column accused Simmons of forcing himself on her in his NY apartment in 1991. "As the corridors of power inevitably make way for a new generation, I don't want to be a distraction, so I am removing myself from the businesses that I founded".
Lumet wrote that she didn't tell anyone of the encounter until October 27, 2017, after the stories about movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
Simmons said his companies will be run "by a new diverse generation of extraordinary executives who are moving the culture and consciousness forward".
While Simmons had strongly disputed Khalighi's account, he announced Thursday his exit from his various companies in light of Lumet's essay.
She goes on to reveal how on a night in 1991, Simmons offered to give her a ride home after seeing him at a local restaurant. As a woman of color, I can not express how wrenching it is to write this about a successful man of color. In it, she related an instance where Simmons allegedly locked her in a vehicle, forced her into his apartment and pressured her, against her will, to engage in sexual activity with him.
His decision was announced as a second woman accused him of sexual misconduct, in NY in 1991.
From there, Lumet felt "dread and disorientation" as she was "maneuvered" by Russell and his driver into the apartment elevator, at which point his driver left them alone. I know Jenny and her family and have seen her several times over the years since the evening she described. " ... As for me, I will step aside and commit myself to continuing my personal growth, spiritual learning and above all to listening".
Actress Tanya Reid made a similar allegation against Simmons and Ratner, saying she was assaulted by Ratner and pressured by Simmons while working in a hotel in 1994.
In recent weeks, multiple women have accused Simmons of sexual misconduct.
Model Keri Claussen Khalighi told the Los Angeles Times that Simmons coerced her to perform a sex act and later penetrated her without her consent in 1991. He also founded the fashion lines Phat Farm and Tantris, and co-produced films and TV shows including "The Nutty Professor" and "Def Comedy Jam". He said he will convert his studio where he practices yoga into a not-for-profit center of learning and healing.
