Russell Simmons Takes Lie Detector Test to Prove Innocence Amid Rape Allegations

Russell Simmons is on a mission to prove his innocence after a series of rape allegations surfaced in an explosive New York Times report.

The 60-year-old music mogul is taking a lie detector test to prove he did not sexually assault Keri Claussen Khalighi. TMZ has obtained an image of Russell taking the test on Wednesday (December 13).

According to Russell‘s attorneys, he passed the test “with flying colors, and plans to repeat the test for allegations made by four other women.”

“Today, I begin to properly defend myself. I will prove without any doubt that I am innocent of all rape charges. Today, I will focus on “The Original Sin” (Keri Claussen), the claim that created this insane pile on of my #MeToo. Stay tuned! We’ll share information today… And tomorrow the case of Jenny Lumet. My intention is not to diminish the #MeToo movement in anyway, but instead hold my accusers accountable. #NotMe Again, this is not a movement against or even in conjunction with #Metoo . It’s just a statement about my innocence,” the 60-year-old music mogul wrote on Instagram.

    Passing a lie detector proves nothing.They are fallable and people can get around them and that’s why they can’t be used as evidence.

    lie detectors aren’t admisible in court for a reason – they’re easily tricked. if the person BELIEVES they’re telling the truth, their bodily responses are according and so the machine believes it to be true even if its BS. they can be tricked. it means nothing

    People make me sick, so now hes a rapist and also a sociopath because he can pass polygraphs. of course it’s completely out of the realm of possibility that he offered to take multiple tests because he had nothing to hide. It may not prove anything, but if he passed them all I’m more inclined to believe him than these women coming forward with allegations that supposedly happens years and even decades ago. This witch hunt is disgusting and every single time the majority of internet commenter’s immediately believe the accusers. I’m sure his 1/3 billion net worth is not enticing at all to these women.

    ur not wrong but when no police reports or rape kits were administered/filed at the time of the actual incident, and 20 years have passed, theres not much that can be done but a lie detector test
