This week, Russell once again made headlines after a woman accused him of rape in a $5 million lawsuit.

In the complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, documentary filmmaker Jennifer Jarosik says the alleged sexual assault took place at an August 2016 meeting at Simmons’ home to discuss a film he had agreed to finance and co-produce. Jarosik, who is seeking $5 million in damages, alleges Simmons propositioned her for sex upon her arrival at his L.A. home. After she said no, the suit alleges, Simmons got aggressive and pushed her onto his bed. (NBC News)

Last month, Simmons reportedly took a lie detector test amid growing rape accusations.

According to Simmons’ attorneys, Michael Sterling and E. Carlos Tanner, Simmons passed with flying colors, and plans to repeat the test for allegations made by 4 other women. They say Russell will release all the results once he’s completed the tests. Russell and his legal team are inviting any of his accusers, including Khalighi, to also take a polygraph. (TMZ)

The same week, Simmons went to social media and promised to fight back against the growing sexual attack claims.
