Russell Simmons meditations on meditation will no longer be available in Oprah Winfrey’s book The Wisdom of Sundays.
Due to the numerous sexual assault allegations made against Russell Simmons, Oprah and her publisher, Flatiron Book made the decision to pull Simmons section from upcoming editions of the book.
The publisher made the announcement in response to an inquiry from The New York Times. Ms. Bittner said the decision to remove the pages was made jointly by Ms. Winfrey and the publisher, but declined to say when they made that choice.
The Wisdom of Sundays, which is a spiritual advice book, has been on best-seller lists since its publication last fall.
New editions of the book will be in stores next month, and will no longer include the Simmons section, according to the publisher.
