Amanda Seales Reveals She Was Sexually Harassed by Russell Simmons

Amanda Seales previously talked about an experience she had with a Hollywood bigwig who asked her if they’d ever had sex together. And now she’s revealing that the man in question is Russell Simmons.

She spilled the tea in an Instagram video.

PSA: For anyone who says, “Why’d they wait so long?” You wait because as a woman raised in a patriarchal, “Bros before Hoes”, sexist, “but what were you wearing” society you understand power dynamics and that even when there are witnesses to any level of sexual harassment/assault it will always be you who is questioned for incurring the offense. You wait because you know your vision is bigger than their indiscretion and refuse to let it derail you from your goals. You wait because you don’t even want to acknowledge the fuckery for longer than you have to when you know the odds are there will be no consequences, you’ll be dismissed, or worse defiled yet again and would rather get on with the positive things in your life. You wait because, especially when it’s a black man of prestige, you are conditioned to not speak defamatory truths for fear it will undermine their contributions to the community. Lastly, you wait, because you don’t even wanna believe it ya damn self. No matter how seemingly benign or intrusive, no one wants to endure this, particularly in professional settings. Yet, so many of us have so many of these stories and we come to operate like a clandestine anti-#creeplifes coalition of alerting others to, “watch out for so and so”. Let that be no more. It is not okay. It is not the culture. It is not your fault. Expose them. #igstorygems

  1. No, you didn’t tell because you got what you wanted (fame) and the trade off was sex with Russell Simmons and whoever else helped you further your career. All of these people coming forward got what they wanted in exchange for who knows what kind of depraved acts. (that was probably recorded for future black mail) Now they owe a favor in return or they will never work in the ‘industry’ again.

    In my best Don Corleon voice “Some day, and that day may never come, I will call upon you to do a service for me.”


    • Exactly. These people did any and everything to get to the top they knew the consequences. One thing about the evil elite is they don’t have to make you do anything they know that There are tons of stupid people in the world that would do anything to be on tv. These people can live their lives just as regular human being but they don’t want to have a regular life they want to be famous and rich. These stars sold their souls so why would they think these high executives and such would give a damn about their bodies.

    • But she just said they did not sleep together. So how did she do anything for fame? Shes just saying hes a creep and. If professional to sum it up.

      • “You know how hard it was for me to say that, he didn’t even assault me and I didn’t want to say that. That’s how the game is fucked up…. that’s how the game is fucked up”

        Yes she did say they didn’t sleep together but in that old clip she never told who he was until now. WHY??? Because she got paid to say it that’s why. When her ass comes up with a new show or project then you will understand how all this works.

        Her, Lapita and nem will do what they are told to do to stay in the “game”, you better ask somebody…

        This poor little Nickelodeon star is quoting Disney in shit with pic of kittens and unicorns, girl you need to wake up and smell the coffee. Cuz these people are SERVING BREAKFAST!!!

        • I think she did not say his name to not embarass him, but she probably revealed him since the other lady came forward and she wanted to back her up or maybe her followers pushed her. Terry Cruz did the same thing.

          I know how Hollywood work trust me and if she aint in a contract with him or his businesses she aint got nothing to worry about. The only thing Russell run is New York. He aint nothing to no other city and dont mean nothing to nobody but Jay Z. His own daughter is currently out here in LA getting played just like his nieces did.

            My point is who “she” and the rest of them, Terry Crews included, works for. This is not just some mass outing of people who sexually harassed or assaulted people in the past, this is a strategic and calculated agenda and they are clearly picking sides.

            He means or meant something to somebody and was protected just like the rest of them in the industry and now the protection has been taken away. Don’t believe me? Ask Bill Cosby…

  2. Makes me wonder viut that old run DMC song its like that and that’s the way it is
