Usher and Russell Simmons in Bali via Instagram

Usher is currently trending on Twitter and facing criticism after the R&B superstar linked up with Russell Simmons in Bali.

Russell shared a slideshow of photos from Usher’s visit on Instagram, set to Beyoncé’s “Love On Top.” 

The caption on the post reads:

When i was at the lowest point in my life i woke up and this man was sitting by my bed ..

i had known usher since he was a kid but we really bonded because of our mutual love for self discovery and our belief in Yogic science as a direct route to realizing Gods conciousness in ourselves…

People remember to remember this ..a friend walks in when others walk out…

i will never forget the generosity of spirit i witnessed in this man God bless you baby bro @usher 🙏🏾 love you!!!!

You may remember that Russell Simmons, the 66-year-old co-founder of the iconic hip-hop label Def Jam, moved to Bali years ago following numerous sexual misconduct allegations.

Usher fans are puzzled, questioning why, after the success of his Las Vegas residency and Super Bowl Halftime Show performance, he would risk his reputation by associating with Russell Simmons.

One person tweeted, “Russell Simmons is a r!pist and Usher has chosen to be in his presence as a friend. So it’s f— him too. And yes, this is a recent video!
