Russell Simmons finally speaks out.
The mogul has been quiet ever ever since brand new allegations of sexual abuse and rape. Recent reports have said he was in Bali where he is reflecting and meditating.
He confirmed the news with an Instagram post.
“I’m in Bali writing, meditating at holy sites and practicing asanas. Letting everyone speak, while I listen.”
Simmons has had about 12 women step forward accusing him of various forms of sexual assault and rape from the early 1980’s to as recent as 2016, claims that has denied.
Take a look at his full message below.
I’m in Bali writing, meditating at holy sites and practicing asanas. Letting everyone speak, while I listen. Focusing and praying to realize one goal, BEING A MORE USEFUL SERVANT OF GOD. I want to fully devote myself to my daughters, the underserved communities I’ve always worked with and the growth of a new conscious community. We need a revolution of consciousness. Now is the time for new beginnings. One awakened being at time.
