Popular music mogul Russell Simmons has taken a lie detector test to prove his innocence on sexual assault allegation.
In a recent report spotted on TMZ, the 60-year-old took the test on Wednesday, December 13. His lawyers claimed he passed the test of Keri Claussen Khalighi “with flying colors, and plans to repeat the test for allegations made by four other women.”
He wrote on Instagram: “Today, I begin to properly defend myself. I will prove without any doubt that I am innocent of all rape charges. Today, I will focus on ‘The Original Sin’ (Keri Claussen), the claim that created this insane pile on of my #MeToo. Stay tuned! We’ll share information today… And tomorrow the case of Jenny Lumet. My intention is not to diminish the #MeToo movement in anyway, but instead hold my accusers accountable. #NotMe Again, this is not a movement against or even in conjunction with #Metoo. It’s just a statement about my innocence.”
Meanwhile, Simmons had already denied all the allegations by four women saying he has only ever had consensual relations with women.
