"These horrific accusations have shocked me to my core and all my relations have been consensual", the Def Jam Records co-founder told the newspaper.
On Thursday, Simmons began to mount a public defense of himself on Instagram using the hashtag #NotMe. Their accusations range from sexual harassment to attempted rape to violent rape. They say Russell will release all the results once he's completed the tests.
