Russell Simmons accused of sexually assaulting a teen as movie producer Brett Ratner allegedly watched.

The allegations, published in The Los Angeles Times on Sunday, come a little more than a week after it was reported that both Simmons and Ratner were investigated by the Beverly Hills Police Department for a similar incident in 2001. It also follows at least eight women recently accusing Ratner of sexual assault.

Keri Claussen Khalighi, a fashion model at the time of the alleged 1991 incident, told the Times she met Simmons at a casting call.
