Russell Simmons has reportedly listed his $8.25 million Los Angeles home for sale amid multiple sexual assault accusations. In addition, he’s also unloading his yoga studio in LA and selling a $9.92 million penthouse in New York City’s Financial District.
Sources say Simmons is spending his time in Bali, where there is no extradition treaty with America. This leads some to speculate that he’s hiding out there just in case criminal charges are brought against him.
More than a dozen women have come forward accuse him of sexual misconduct and assault, dating back to the early 1980s. Following the allegations, he stepped down from his posts at All Def Digital, Def Pictures, and his yoga lifestyle brand, Tantris, stating he would take some time away from his businesses to commit himself to “personal growth, spiritual learning and above all to listening.”
