The $5 million rape lawsuit against Russell Simmons was dismissed. Why? Find out inside…

Russell Simmons is likely feeling like a winner after the $5 million rape lawsuit that was filed against him was dismissed.

Aspiring filmmaker Jennifer Jarosik came forward with claims that the Hip Hop mogul raped her inside of his Beverly Hills home in 2016 in exchange for him to fund her project. After filing the suit, Russell responded, saying ALL of their encounters were consensual and that she’s only looking for a quick come up. Not only that, he filed paperwork stating Jennifer sent him text messages and nude photos after the alleged sexual assault.

Well, now the lawsuit has been dismissed!

According to legal docs (dug up by TMZ), the suit was "dismissed with prejudice" this morning, which means Jennifer can not file another lawsuit based on the same allegation. It’s unclear IF a settlement was involved, but usually when a case is “dismissed with prejudice” it means some coins were exchanged.

While he hasn’t officially commented on the matter, he posted this on his social media accounts:

 

 

 

 

Just because Russell scored this "victory" doesn’t mean he’s out of the woods just yet. The NYPD is investigating Russell after two other women came forward with rape and sexual assault allegations. And there are about 14 women have come forward with sexual assault allegations against him, resulting in Russell stepping down from his own company, Def Jam.
