Luann de Lesseps, 52 year-old star of reality show The Real Housewives of NY, is the latest to accuse Russell Simmons of improper behavior. Luann, who spent the night in jail after attacking a police officer on New Years Eve, says “He grabbed my ass in an elevator, he was just a pig.”
She went on to tell the Daily Beast, “I haven’t told anybody about that before. I was grossed out. I was like ‘How dare you.’ He invaded me, he took advantage of me, being who he is, thinking he is all ‘it,’ all everything. He thought he could just do that. I looked at him and said, ‘Don’t ever do that again.’” de Lesseps says the incident took place at the Soho Beach House in Miami three years ago but she won’t press charges.
Simmons is facing several harsh accusations of assault and rape including a lawsuit of $10 million.
