Kimora Lee Simmons is defending her ex-husband against the numerous accusations of rape and sexual assault he’s facing.
Russell Simmons has denied all of the allegations against him, and his ex-wife has remained silent about the accusations until Friday when she posted a message of support on Instagram.
“These allegations against him are nothing like the person I have known in all that time,” she said in the post. “I have known him to be a caring and supportive father who has worked tirelessly to uplift disenfranchised communities.”
She claims that the 60-year-old raped her at his Los Angeles home in 2016 after she refused to have sex with him.
On Thursday, Simmons released a statement in response saying, “All of my relations have been consensual.” He vowed to “relentlessly fight against any untruthful character assassination that paints me as a man of violence.”
