Hip hop moguls and brothers Russell Simmons and Rev. Run have been accused of stealing millions by a former business partner. Rasheed Young, President of Run Athletics, sent the Simmons brothers a letter where he claims they funneled revenue from the Pastry footwear line–which is affiliated with Run’s daughters, Angela and Vanessa.
Russell has fired back at Young’s allegations.
“[Rasheed] worked for me…I fought to keep his job … and I’m sorry he’s disgruntled, but that’s what happens,” Simmons told TMZ. “Anyone can say anything if a celebrity’s name’s attached to it … there’s nothing I can do about it … it’s false.”
“We never stole any money from anybody,” Simmons claims.
