Mogul Russell Simmons is setting the record straight as to  the conditions of his custody  agreement with his ex-wife Kimora Lee Simmons. Many of you may have seen the court ordered agreement on this site,but so as to not allow people to read too much into the custody agreement,Russell explains in details about the entire situation on his personal website:

Friends of mine have forwarded me gossip online about my custody agreement details with Kimora. The fact is, we’ve had a pretty good partnership at sharing the girls in the past. There have been a few bumps in the road, and those bumps have led us to negotiate a minimum amount of time I’m guaranteed to see my kids. That deal is as follows: I have the girls one full week out of every eight, half of the summer, half of all the holidays, a full week at Christmas, and half of Spring Break. Like in all good partnerships, contracts are meant to protect the partners but are usually not the only way the partners work together. If I show up in L.A., where she now lives, unannounced, I can call up Kimora and she will most likely send them right over. The same goes for when she comes to New York. We have always had a school in New York and a school with the same curriculum in L.A., so when the girls are with me in New York, we can spend quality time together. I can get up with them, take them to school and just be together.

Kimora consults with me about doctors or schools for the girls, but she’s always had final say in those areas. If we had an argument about a school, guess who’s going to win? But there are other stipulations in our agreement where we have to make final decisions together. Anything having to do with business decisions pertaining to my kids cannot be done without my consent.

I’ve also seen a lot about people reading into the supervised visits stipulation. Kimora travels with a security guard and a nanny. In the past, she’s gotten really nervous that I never travel with security, so if it makes her more comfortable to have her security and a nanny with us when I’m with my kids, that’s OK with me.

Finally, I want to say Kimora is a excellent mother and is doing a great job with them. My kids are studying a couple of foreign languages, they travel around the world, they practice yoga, ballet, swimming, karate and piano, among other things…sometimes I think they do too much, but I trust in Kimora on this because she IS a good mother. Regarding the money, my kids live a tremendous life. They do have lots of security, nannies, educators, special programs, travel, chefs, on and on. Their mother manages all of those luxuries and I’m happy to provide for that.

With great love all things are possible.

  1. What a good man he is…. Love you Russell

  2. Good For them!

  3. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you handle yourself when you are grown and sexy.

    Sounds like their kids are really gonna be able to do some things when they get older. It would seem that they are getting a great education.

  4. … and I don’t mean just from their school. Looks like their parents are actually raising their kids and teaching them civility at the same time. Nice.

  5. And that, people, is how a man gets raped in the a**!! LOL! Yeah, being a man means to shut up, pay up, have no say, and, well, basically be a b*itch a** dude…..and you wonder why dad’s aren’t sticking around.

  6. Russ aint set the record str8. Y not get joint custody?

  7. That makes a lot of sense. I really RESPECT Mr. Simmon’s clarifying this issue and thinking of his children FIRST and foremost. From looking at her tv show it is evident that Kimora ia a good mother and it is very honorable of Russell to agree that Kimora should be the sole gaurdian and letting her continue to play her role as she always has. He is the MAN and should provide for his children financially. He agrees that they have a lavish lifestyle and he should not mind providing them with the things that he feels they need. Unlike others like 50 cent. Thanks to Mr. Simons for representing what a true MAN and FATHER should be.

  8. But have you seen them on her TV show? Pretty kids. Pretty spoilt.

  9. Russell. I am standing, applauding you. God Bless you. Goodnite.

  10. i love russell he’s a good man, with gorgeous kids!
