Russell Simmons & Daughters Cover Jet

Music Mogul Russell Simmons and his beautiful daughters Ming Lee, 9, and Aoki Lee, 6 1/2, grace the cover of the July issue of Jet magazine.

Though Russell split from the girls’ mom Kimora Lee in 2006, the exes have managed to keep things remarkably amicable.

“Obviously we have an arrangement, but Kimora is very gracious when it comes to the children,” Russell reveals. “Whenever there is something special, additional days that I want, she is very accommodating.”

“We are the best of friends,” he adds of his relationship with his former wife. “And that’s very helpful to the girls.”

Following in the footsteps of Bruce and Demi, Russell even seems to have welcomed Kimora’s new love, actor Djimon Hounsou, into the family fold. The two welcomed a child of their own, son Kenzo Lee, earlier this year. Russell has nothing but praise for his daughters’ new stepdad.

“We talk about fatherhood and his experiences and everything. I hope to make a movie with him soon,” Russell tells Jet. “He is a very calm, sweet person and a great stabilizing force in the way things have been between me and Kimora, so that’s great.”
