6th woman alleges rape by Def Jam co-founder Russell Simmons

LOS ANGELES: A woman said in a lawsuit filed Wednesday that Russell Simmons raped her at his Los Angeles home in 2016, joining five other women who have publicly leveled rape allegations against the music mogul.

Simmons, a co-founder of Def Jam Recordings, denied the newest allegations as he did the previous ones.

The lawsuit, which was filed in federal court and seeks $5 million in damages, says Jennifer Jarosik went to Simmons’ home in August 2016 for a meeting about a documentary she was making and Simmons had agreed to help produce.
