Russell Simmons has been accused of rape in a new $10 million lawsuit, according to court documents obtained by Billboard.
In the complaint, which was filed Friday (March 23) in LA County Superior Court, a woman identified as Jane Doe accused the Def Jam co-founder of luring her to his hotel room and raping her. She alleges that they met at a concert she attended with her young son and was invited to an afterparty by Simmons. After dropping off her son, she says she and Simmons spent time at a nightclub before moving to his hotel because he said he needed to get something from the room.
The lawsuit claims that once inside the room, Simmons allegedly said, "I am going to f--- you," before threatening, "I'm going to f--- you or I'm going to f--- your son." The suit alleges that Simmons then threw Jane Doe on the bed and raped her.
