Khalighi added that she also reached out to Simmons the day the Times published a story about Ratner's alleged misconduct, telling him that she was thinking about coming forward with her story.

A bombshell new report out today in the Los Angeles Times accuses Russell Simmons of teaming up with his longtime friend Brett Ratner to engage in alleged sexual harassment and assault of multiple women. While taking a shower, she says, Simmons walked up behind her and briefly penetrated her without her consent. She said, "I guess I just acquiesced" while Ratner "sat there and watched". Additionally, Simmons issued the following statement to The Hollywood Reporter: "I completely and unequivocally deny the horrendous allegations of non-consensual sex against me with every fiber of my being".
Simmons denied the allegations in a Facebook post on Sunday morning, and Ratner's lawyer told the L.A. Times in a statement that he had "no recollection" of Khaligi asking him for help or protesting during the incident. "I remember this very, very clearly, the exact words he said on the phone". "I fought it wildly", she said in the article, claiming she eventually relented and performed oral sex on the music mogul while Ratner watched.
