Backstreet Boy Nick Carter Denies Rape Accusation by Former Girl-Group Singer
Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter on Wednesday denied allegations by a former member of the all-girl pop group Dream that he raped her 15 years ago.

Russell Simmons Accuser Says He Apologized to Her Privately

Russell Simmons Accuser Says He Apologized to Her Privately
Despite “completely and unequivocally” denying allegations that he sexually assaulted model Keri Claussen Khalighi when she was 17, Russell Simmons allegedly privately apologized to his accuser.

During an appearance on “Megyn Kelly Today,” Khalighi told the host that Simmons’ claim that what transpired in his apartment, where director-producer Brett Ratner was also present, in 1991 was “completely consensual” is “ludicrous.”

“Russell and I have actually had a face-to-face confrontation around this,” Khalighi told Kelly via video. “We’ve had phone conversations where we’ve had a conversation about what happened where there was no dispute of what we were talking about. We were both talking about what happened on that night and he actually apologized.”

“Part of what’s so confusing and re-traumatizing is what he’s speaking about privately with me is completely different than what’s come out publicly,” Khalighi continued. “And that’s the piece that’s been really, really, really upsetting,

I haven’t done those for a long, long time,” she says with a good natured laugh.
