Russell Simmons sued by ex Def Jam producer for alleged rape in the ’90s

A former music video producer has sued Def Jam Recordings co-founder Russell Simmons, 66, alleging that he raped her while she working for the label in the 1990s.

In a lawsuit filed in New York on Tuesday and obtained by The Post, the woman, who identifies herself as Jane Doe, claims that she went over to Simmons’ Manhattan apartment to get his approval for a rough cut of a video.

There, he allegedly began to “wrestle” her, before pinning her to the bed and raping her.

“Ms. Doe rejected his advance and told him to ‘get off’ and ‘stop’ several times,” the suit states. “She told him she was ‘serious’ and she ‘meant it.’ But Ms. Doe was forcefully pinned, could not move under his weight and Mr. Simmons would not listen to her.”

The Post has contacted reps for Simmons for comment.
