Russell Simmons’ attempt to get his rape case thrown out has been denied and he has been given until the end of December to respond to the allegations.

A few months ago, Drew Dixon came forward with details of an encounter with Russell, while working for him back in the 90’s. Dixon worked as an A&R at Def Jam when she was 24 and said Russell was all kinds of inappropriate. “He would come in my office, shut the door, lock it, and push me against the wall, exposing himself,” she explained, adding: “You could say I should’ve quit. I look back now; I would want my daughter to quit. I also wanted to prove to people that I could do this. I love hip-hop.”

Russell’s argument that the accuser did not give specific dates in her case has been deemed irrelevant since “the elements of the three claims (forcible rape, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligent infliction of emotional distress) do not require a date of the incident.” The hearing is set for next month.
