Russell Simmons Steps Down From Def Jam Due to Sexual Misconduct Allegations
Russell Simmons, iconic music executive and founder of Def Jam Records has just stepped down from all of his companies after a woman stepped forward accusing Simmons of sexual misconduct during an alleged encounter back in 1991 according to reports. In an open letter with The Hollywood Reporter, screen-writer Jenny Lumet recalls her alleged inappropriate encounter with the music executive, dating back to a night in 1991 that led to the two returning to Simmons’ home.
