Exclusive: Russell Simmons Says He Is Getting Death Threats Because of Bossip

- By Bossip Staff

Bossip.com just got off the phone with BDR and his lawyers and Mr. Simmons is not pleased that Bossip calls him “Blood Diamond Russ. ‘Blood Diamonds” has been in the news lately with Naomi Campbell allegedly lying at the war crimes trial of former Liberian dictator Charles Taylor. Apparently, swirl-em up Russ is feeling some heat.

While on the call, BDR mentioned his life was being threatened because of Bossip and asked us “do you know what happened to Tupac and Biggie?”. BDR says he has a lot of resources and his big white lawyers will be coming after Bossip.com. Although BDR said he loves the term “Blood Diamond Russ” in an previous interview with Bossip, he is now riding hard against us using the term.

Where did the term BDR come from? Russell Simmons was attacked by the director of movie ‘Blood Diamond’ for understating the problems from the diamond industry exploiting Africans for profit. It has been alleged BDR has a close relationship with the diamond industry. We are not backing down from swirl-em up Russ and will continue to use the term “BDR”. If BDR is ever hurt, it won’t be because of Bossip, it will be because of something shady he was involved in with regards to the blood diamond industry. If Bossip was to stop telling the truth and stop being critical of suspect leaders in our community, we wouldn’t be true to what was behind starting Bossip in the first place.

    first of all….when you are a celebrity you submit to the fact that there will be good days and bad days…positive opinions on you and negative…with that being said….what the f uck is he talking about ….biggie and pac….his white boy executives friends are the ones who did it….also when will these celebrities learn that if you really dont want something to go on….the worst thing you can do is talk about it publicly….then again that is probably why he is doing it…maybe another rush card coming out soon….btw is anyone aware that he is a child molester…he…”met” kimora when she was 15….but i guess you all think that means…they were friends….right…thats why she moved into his home at 16…black people we are getting close to the time where most of us should just do like fantasia and overdose…bc we are not doing anything positive for our people….we are so DUMB…i love us….but honestly….if you look at who we make our leaders and who we look up to…that shows you the sad state of affairs we as a people our in….i mean give me a break…..

    Russell is the only African American mogul who has not only openly denounced the use of blood diamonds but gives an alternative option with the Green Malachite Bracelet with a rough diamond encased in a charm. It’s his way of helping those countries and making sure the diamonds are conflict free.

    You may not be a fan of his swirl but to besmirch the name of someone who at least tries to give back is just childish. I’m not saying the man is squeaky clean but if you’re going to report something negative, let it be based in truth. This is just petty.

  • KK

    Lmao ya’ll are better than me, I thought that BDR stood for Bad D**k Report all this time, because of Kimora saying he was wack. That’s what I thought BDR meant in relation to Russell lmao. *shrugs*

  • BigDaddy

    “Tell the truth, and shame the devil”
    An old saying my parents and grandparents used to say.

  • R_U_Trying_To_Prove_Her_Right?

    Calm down Russ —- nobody is going to do a “drive by lisp” on your triflin’ a$$.

  • tg

    Good for him. I hope he sues the pants off you guys. And Shuts your arses down. More celebs should go after you guys for speaking BS about them day after day after day. Your disrespect has finally caught up to you FAKES. Hopefully, others will follow suit (literally).

  • Curious1

    If it’s True that his Diamonds are Tainted…then there is no libel,slander nor defamation…JMO (not a lawyer of course, lol)
