Late last year Simmons was accused of sexual misconduct by some 13 women, including some women who said he raped or attempted to rape them. Simmons stepped down from his businesses but defending himself via social media.

TMZ reported that Simmons had taken a lie-detector test regarding the first accusation against him, from Keri Claussen Khalighi in the LA Times, which, his lawyers claimed, he “passed with flying colors.” His legal rep said Simmons planned to submit to four more tests.

Welp… It’s not clear if we’ll ever see the results of those other tests, but Simmons hasn’t mentioned #NotMe in the last month.

Asked about the silence, his reps told Page Six that Simmons felt that it was “a time for women to speak,” adding, “Mr. Simmons’ previous statements stand, and he has nothing to add to [them] at this time.”

Anyone surprised Simmons is suddenly silent on the issue?
