According to TMZ, two more women have gone to the NYPD and filed criminal complaints, accusing Russell Simmons, accusing him of rape back in 1983 and 1991.

One of those women, Sherri Hines, who appeared on Megyn Kelly’s show in December, tells police that Simmons raped her at his office in 1983. The other woman, who remains anonymous, claims Simmons raped her at his Manhattan residence after they’d gone out on a date in 1991. She says that Simmons tried taking off her dress while sitting on a couch and then pushed her down and forcibly raped her when she rejected him.

The total number of women accusing Simmons of sexual misconduct is now 14. Simmons has denied all previous claims against him and he even took and passed a polygraph in an attempt to refute at least one of the allegations. The NYPD is currently investigating Simmons for at least 7 claims of sexual misconduct.
