  • Russell Simmons and Brett Ratner

When speaking with the host, Megyn Kelly, Keri said she doesn't know how to respond to Russell's defense because it's "ludicrous".

Model Keri Claussen Khalighi alleges Simmons coerced her to perform a sex act and later penetrated her without her consent in his NY apartment. Khalighi said it was during that time that Simmons pulled off her clothes with Bret Ratner looking on. He suggested that Khalighi's accusation came from feeling shame. Simmons and Ratner, she said, after meeting her, invited her to Simmons' apartment on the pretext of seeing a music video they had produced.

Russell has insisted the sexual contact that took place between them during the weekend in question was consensual, but on Wednesday (22Nov17) Keri made an appearance on US talk show Megyn Kelly Today, stating his assertions were "ludicrous", and noting she later "had a face-to-face confrontation" with him about the incident during which "he actually apologised".

Simmons disputed her account, saying that "everything that occurred between Keri and me occurred with her full consent and participation" - and now had released a longer statement refuting the allegations on The Hollywood Reporter.

Khalighi went public on Sunday and open up about the sexual encounter with the music mogul when she was only 17-year-old in 1991, she was consensual. However, he says, "I never committed any acts of aggression or violence in my life".

"And he actually apologized and part of what's so confusing...traumatizing is what he's speaking about privately with me is completely different than what's come out publicly and that's the piece that's been really, really upsetting, disappointing and quite honestly repugnant with the hypocrisy and the lies and the denial".

"After the oral sex part of the story, I stayed", she explained, revisiting the details of the incident. "I am still evolving".

Simmons also introduced the affidavits by stating they were proof that the 'experiences that weekend with Keri Claussen Khalighi 26 years ago were consensual'. For any women from my past who I may have offended, I sincerely apologize. "It's not cool to be a playboy and a new consciousness understands this", he added. Though never abusive in any way, my remarks were often cavalier and thoughtless, and for this I am humbled.
