Russell Simmons is now being sued for $5 million by a woman who says she was sexually assaulted by him.

Jennifer Jarosik claims Simmons invited her to his house in 2016 and suggested they have sex, which she refused. She says Simmons became aggressive, and pushed her onto his bed. When she tired to fight back, he knocked her off the bed, and she hit her head. He then pounced on her, and proceeded to rape her.

She says her & Simmons met back to 2006 and became friend over shared passions like mediation, yoga & vegan dieting.

She is suing Simmons for $5 million for punitive damages and unspecified actual damages.

Jennifer Jarosik becomes one of more than a dozen women to come out against Russell Simmons.
