February 25, 2018 10:15 am

Foxy Brown has decided to defend Russell Simmons in the wake of several sexual assault allegations.

She took to Instagram to voice her support for the mogul in an open letter.

“Attesting to the character of the man who, as a teenager saved my life. Salaciousness and scandal garners headlines. Cowards cower,” she wrote . “But as inarguably, Russell’s biggest Def Jam female protege, (who birthed an era of overtly evocative stars), the man I’ve known and loved, was nothing more than the respectful, respected, gentleman and GODFATHER OF HIP-HOP we’ve all adored. In staunch support, Praying for you Russ!”
