The Smith kids pose on the set of the family’s VH1 gig with ‘Behind The Music.’  Rapper/actor LL Cool J, along with his wife and kids, were showcased as a family of foundation and talent as the network got an inside eye of what it’s like to live as superstars.


Simone is one family member who has been using her star power sharing her story with the world through her charity. ‘A Sweet Touch of Hope’ is a jewelry collection that features the most exquisite pieces in the form of lollipops. Simone sells the jewel pops at a reasonable price and donates a portion of her earnings to the American Cancer Society. Simone herself is a survivor of cancer and doesn’t neglect to share her story or lend support to any organization looking for a cure.

LL Cool J and Simone have four kids-Samaria, Italia, Nina, and Najee-together. The couple wed over 15 years ago. Find out more about ‘A Sweet Touch of Hope’ at the jewelry collection’s website.
