Earlier this month, Marcille publicly defended Simmons, whom she is friends with on social media writing:

Allegations and accusations are not facts…how quick we are to condemn an amazing man because of what someone says…what about his denial of these horrible accusations, do they not have weight? I know Russell to be an amazing upstanding man period.

As previously reported, in November 2017, model Keri Claussen Khalighi accused Simmons of sexual assault in 1991. Simmons and Brett Ratner, who was also accused by Khalighi of watching them without intervening when she asked for his help, both deny that the encounter was non-consensual. As the allegation was covered in the press, Terry Crews accused Simmons of attempting to influence him to take back sexual assault allegations that Crews had recently brought up against film executive Adam Venit, asking that Crews “give him a pass … ask that he be reinstated.”  On November 30, 2017, writer Jenny Lumet claimed that Simmons had assaulted her in 1991. In response, Simmons said he would step down from his positions with his businesses. On the same day, HBO announced that they are removing Simmons’s name and his likeness from his stand-up comedy specials starting with the December 1 episode.

Women who said they had been sexually harassed or assaulted (including attempted rape) by Simmons include:

  1. Kelly Cutrone, publicist and author.

  3. Lisa Kirk.
  4. Toni Sallie, reporter.
  5. Amanda Seales, actor.
