Russell Simmons is determined to prove his innocence amid multiple sexual misconduct and rape allegations.

The media mogul turned to Instagram yesterday afternoon to address the growing list of accusations made against him by using the hashtag #NotMe in his defense.  In his caption, he says, “Today, I begin to properly defend myself. I will prove without any doubt that I am innocent of all rape charges.”

He continued, “Today, I will focus on “The Original Sin” (Keri Claussen), the claim that created this insane pile on of my #MeToo."

Knowing the general public will not simply take his word as fact, Simmons agreed to sit down - with his attorneys, Michael Sterling and E. Carlos Tanner – and take a polygraph test to prove he did not assault model Keri Claussen Khalighi.

TMZ received an exclusive photo of Simmons taking the lie detector test in the L.A. area Wednesday night.

According to the media site, the polygraph test was administered by a “national leader in the field of polygraphing.” It’s said the former Def Jam head answered a series of questions about accusations made by Khalighi.

Attorneys Sterling and Tanner say their client passed the test with no problem, and will repeat the polygraph test for his most recent accusers.
