Russell Simmons has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show five times over the years and as a result, the two moguls developed a “very close” relationship, as Simmons explains to HipHopDX.

So, when the news broke the illustrious talk show host was producing a documentary that focuses on sexual assault accuser Drew Dixon, it understandably blinded-sided the Def Jam Recordings co-founder. “I want to stay out the mud,” he tells DX. “I love Oprah. I’m disappointed.”

On Friday (December 13), Simmons shared a photo himself sitting with Oprah and questioned why she believes there’s any truth to the allegations. At the same time, he admitted to being a “womanizer” back in the day.

“Dearest OPRAH, you have been a shining light to my family and my community,” he began. “Contributing so much to my life that I couldn’t list a fraction it in this blog. I have given you the gift meditation and the groundbreaking book ”THE POWER OF NOW “we bonded to say the least. This is why it’s so troubling that you choose me to single out in your recent documentary. 

“I have already admitted to being a playboy more (appropriately titled today ‘womanizer’) sleeping with and putting myself in more compromising situations than almost any man I know. Not 8 or 14 thousand like Warren Beatty or Wilt Chamberlain, but still an embarrassing number. So many that some could reinterpret or reimagine a different recollection the same experiences.”

Dearest OPRAH,you have been a shining light to my family and my community. Contributing so much to my life that I couldn’t list a fraction it in this blog.Ihave given you the gift meditation and the groundbreaking book”THE POWER OF NOW “we bonded to say the least. This is why it’s so troubling that you choose me to single out in your recent documentry. I have already admitted to being a playboy more (appropriately titled today “womanizer”) sleeping with and putting myself in more compromising situations than almost any man I know. Not 8 or 14 thousand like Warren Beatty or Wilt Chamberlain, but still an embarrassing number. So many that some could reinterpret or reimagine a different recollection the same experiences. Please note that ur producers said that this upcoming doc was to focus ONLY on 3 hand chosen women. I have refused to get in the mud with any accusers, but let’s acknowledge what i have shared. I have taken and passed nine 3-hour lie detector tests (taken for my daughters), that these stories have been passed on by CNN, NBC, BUZZFEED, NY POST, NY MAG, AND OTHERS. Now that you have reviewed the facts and you SHOULD have learned what I know; that these stories are UNUSABLE and that “hurt people hurt people”. Today I received a call from an old girlfriend from the early 1980s which means that they are using my words/evidence against me and their COMMITMENT / (all the claims are 25 to 40 years old) It is impossible to prove what happened 40 years ago, but in my case pro exists what didn’t happen, mostly signed letters from their own parents, siblings, roommates, band members, interns, and in the case 2 your 3 accusers, their own words in their books. Shocking how many people have misused this important powerful revolution for relevance and money. Maybe you should name your documentary “FLAVOR OF LOVE”!? In closing, I am guilty exploiting, supporting, and making the soundtrack for a grossly unequal society, but i have never been violent or forced myself on anyone. Still I am here to help support a necessary shift in power and consciousness. Let us get to work on uplifting humanity and put this moment and old narrative behind

Simmons then reminds Oprah he took — and passed — nine lie detector tests for his daughters Aoki Lee and Ming Lee. 

“Please note that ur producers said that this upcoming doc was to focus ONLY on 3 hand chosen women,” he continued. “I have refused to get in the mud with any accusers, but let’s acknowledge what i have shared.

Now that you have reviewed the facts and you SHOULD have learned what I know; that these stories are UNUSABLE and that ‘hurt people hurt people.'”

He also insists he never had to use force to have sex with any women.

“Today I received a call from an old girlfriend from the early 1980s which means that they are using my words/evidence against me and their COMMITMENT / (all the claims are 25 to 40 years old),” he concluded. “It is impossible to prove what happened 40 years ago, but in my case pro exists what didn’t happen, mostly signed letters from their own parents, siblings, roommates, band members, interns, and in the case 2 your 3 accusers, their own words in their books.

Simmons adds, “Still I am here to help support a necessary shift in power and consciousness. Let us get to work on uplifting humanity and put this moment and old narrative behind.”

50 Cent, who evidently caught wind Simmons’ Instagram post, shared a similar photo Simmons with Oprah and questioned why she seemed to only target black men — in true 50 Cent fashion.

“I don’t understand why Oprah is going after black men,” he captioned the post. “No Harvey Weinstein, No Epstein, just Michael Jackson and Russell Simmons. this shit is sad. Gale hit R Kelly with the death blow documentary. Every time I hear Micheal Jackson I don’t know whether to dance or think about the little boys butts. These documentary’s are publicly convicting their targets, it makes them guilty till proven innocent.”

Earlier this month, the Los Angeles Times reported Oprah is serving as the executive producer for a new documentary focusing on “a brilliant former music executive who grapples with whether to go public with her story assault and abuse by a notable figure in the music industry.”

The film reportedly centers on Dixon who accused Simmons raping her in his Manhattan apartment in 1995.
