Russell Simmons Says Life In Bali Isn’t Due to Assault Allegations

Russell Simmons says he’s not in Bali to avoid the multiple women accusing him of sexual assault and misconduct.

Russell Simmons is clearing the air on any misconceptions about his reason for living in Bali, Indonesia, amid his ongoing legal battles.

According to the Def Jam founder, his life in Bali has nothing to do with the multiple women who have accused him of sexual assault and misconduct. While many have speculated whether Simmons relocated to Bali to avoid the legal trouble that’s come his way due to the allegations, the hip-hop mogul says the rumors are all “false.”

“People saying that I somehow can’t come home when I’m there all the time wears on you. It wears on me after a while to keep hearing the same narrative, which is false,” Simmons told AllHipHop.

“I’m always in L.A., I’m always in New York and Miami. And I’ve never had any reason to feel unsafe in America.”

Simmons filed a declaration on Wednesday, May 22, clarifying his resident status.

Simmons has denied the allegations made by multiple women but has admitted to being “insensitive” in the past.
