When 17-year-old fashion model Keri Claussen Khalighi met Brett Ratner and Russell Simmons at a casting call, she was excited.

Keri Claussen Khalighi, now 43, told the Los Angeles Times that the alleged incident took place at Simmons' apartment in NY in 1991.

The allegations by Khalighi surfaced in the article published by the Los Angeles Times Sunday in which Khalighi says she had gone to dinner with Simmons and Brett Ratner in NY back in 1991.

Variety reported earlier last week that Ratner and Simmons had been investigated in 2001 by the Beverly Hills Police Department for alleged sexual battery in a case not related to Khalighi's.

Tanya Reid also shared a story about Simmons and Ratner.

"The paper writes, "[McNair] said he saw Khalighi go to Simmons" bedroom "on her own volition and without any coercion or undue influence, '" and mentions a next-day encounter, claiming he "did not notice 'any visible signs of distress or that anything improper had occurred.'" Khalighi maintains that only Simmons and Ratner were present during the private moments of the 1991 weekend. One is named, former Rush assistant Anthony "Mac" McNair.

Several women claimed that Ratner's friends, including Simmons and director James Toback, who's been accused of sexual misconduct by hundreds of women, enabled inappropriate behavior within the group, the Times reports. Prosecutors didn't file charges because of lack of evidence. He allegedly apologized to her and mentioned that he has two children. "I was horrified, because she's a good, dear person".

Crews captioned the post: "NO ONE GETS A PASS".
