Jarosik became the 15th woman to accuse Simmons of sex crimes-her attorney filed the lawsuit in Beverly Hills on Wednesday.

According to the court documents, Simmons invited Jarosik to his home in 2016 around ten years after they became friends. Jarosik reached his home in August 2016 to talk about a documentary she had been making. She has alleged in her lawsuit that Russell proposed her for sex and when she declined, he pushed her onto his bed.

Simmons allegedly hit her in the head and lumped over her. As per the lawsuit, Jarosik tried to slip off of him but lay helpless as Simmons proceeded to rape her. The incident left Jarosik sore, lame, disabled, and disordered both physically and emotionally.
