After months of sexual misconduct allegations, the Def Jam co-founder said that he is working on his relationship with God, "writing, meditating at holy sites and practicing asanas.”

After months of sexual misconduct allegations, Russell Simmons is in Bali focusing on bettering himself.

The producer took to Instagram Wednesday (Feb. 21), posting a black image with white text that reads, "Temporarily closed for spiritual maintenance." In the caption, Simmons explains that he is working on his relationship with God, "writing, meditating at holy sites and practicing asanas."

"Letting everyone speak, while I listen. Focusing and praying to realize one goal, BEING A MORE USEFUL SERVENT OF GOD," he continued. "I want to fully devote myself to my daughters, the underserved communities I've always worked with and the growth of a new conscious community."

The post comes after three women accused the Def Jam co-founder of raping them, as well as a number of other misconduct claims, throughout the 1980s and 1990s.

Simmons stepped down from his companies following the allegations.
