Oprah Winfrey has a new battle on her hands, with Russell Simmons 17 year old daughter Aoki Simmons and sister Ming.
Last fall, Oprah decided to executive produce a documentary that interviews women who accuse entertainment mogul Russell Simmons of sexual assault.
Oprah pulled out of the documentary after she found what she calls “inconsistencies” with at least one of the alleged victim’s story.
But Oprah is not backing down from accusing Russell of the horrible crimes.
This week, she went on CBS This Morning, and defending the women – and reiterated that she “believes” their stories, even with the “inconsistencies.”
Russell Simmons has vehemently denied all allegations, but Oprah told Gayle – during the interview – that it’s important to vocalize her support of the women who have spoken out.
“I believe the women’s voices deserve to be heard, and as an executive producer I was also in a position where I think things were not right. I wanted the context of the story to be broadened, I wanted more women to be brought in.”
Well this morning, Aoki fired a shot at Oprah.
