Hip-Hop mogul Russell Simmons has nothing but kind words for the mother of his two children. The dad of two has expressed gratitude for his ex-wife Kimore Lee Simmons-Leissner and the men in her life. He writes on his Instagram page:
“Family. I’m excited to receive my family tomorrow. As a single man with kids who are away at boarding school it gets kind of lonely. This morning’s meditation made me reflect on just how lucky I am. I feel incredibly close to my best friend Kimora Leissner and her amazing spouse and now my business partner, Tim Leissner. I also feel very close to the father of one of the kids I love the most in the world (Kenzo Lee)Djimon Hounsou. When Tim asked me to be the Godfather to his and Kimora’s beautiful baby boy, WOLF, I was overwhelmed.”
He continues, “Anyhow with my 2 biological kids being so sweet, compassionate and excelling in one of the best boarding schools in the world (receiving straight A’s). I feel so grateful I can’t really express the feelings in words. While I realize that life is short and ever changing (you never know what’s around the bend) for now I must say this morning meditation produced tears of joy. Thank you KIMORA LEE FOR BEING A STRONG, STRONG EXAMPLE OF EXCELLENCE. You are the best mother on the planet. ‘YOU PUT THIS THING TOGETHER’.”
Russell and Kimora are parents to daughter Ming and Aoki Simmons. Kimora has four kids in all.
