Kimora Lee Simmons the ex wife of Russell Simmons, says the allegations against him are nothing like the person she has known for over 25 years.
Kimora Lee Simmons shared this message with her followers on Instagram Thursday night:
“I have known Russell for over 25 years. We were close friends, married, divorced, and have remained friends, co-parents and partners throughout it all. These allegations against him are nothing like the person I have known in all that time. I have known him to be a caring and supportive father and someone who has worked tirelessly to uplift disenfranchised communities.”
Eight women have accused Russell Simmons of rape or sexual assault.
Simmons has denied all of the allegations against him, and released a statement saying he’s looking forward to his day in court.
“I look forward to having my day in court – where, unlike the court of public opinion, I will have the ability to make use of fair processes that ensure that justice will be done and that the full truth will be known.”
Kimora and Russell Simmons have two daughters together, Ming Lee and Aoki Lee.
