Music and film producer Russell Simmons faced new accusations of sexual misconduct from nine woman in incidents dating back to 1983, including four who alleged that heraped them, according to separate reports in two USA newspapers.
In an earlier denial issued on Wednesday, Simmons said his accusers' claims "range from the patently untrue to the frivolous and hurtful".

Russell Simmons continues to stand by his conviction that he is innocent amid allegations of sexual harassment from different women. In his first message he stated he has "never had a sexual encounter that was not consensual or lawful", and that the accusations against him had "shocked me to my core".
Simmons said he would be sharing evidence today and on Friday regarding the case of Jenny Lumet, a writer who wrote an open letter to him saying he had sexually assaulted her in 1991.
According to Simmons' attorneys, Michael Sterling and E. Carlos Tanner, Simmons passed with flying colors, and plans to repeat the test for allegations made by 4 other women.
The investigation began after nine women came forward with sexual misconduct claims this week.
Tina Baker, an '80s pop singer who was managed by Simmons and said that he raped her in his NY apartment in late 1990 or early 1991, said that she had been contacted by a detective from the Police Department's Special Victims squad.
"I am blessed to have shared extraordinary relationships, whether through work or love, with many great women; and I have enormous respect for the women's movement worldwide and their struggle for respect, dignity, equality and power", Simmons said in a statement sent to CNN. Again, this is not a movement against or even in conjunction with #MeToo.
"Everything that occurred between Keri and me occurred with her full consent and participation", Simmons said. "It's just a statement about my innocence".

The mogul released a statement regarding the incident with Lumet, apologizing and sympathizing with her feelings of fear and intimidation, but denied assaulting her.
