Are Kimora’s child support demands crazy?

Russell Simmons, Kimora Lee Simmons and daughters Ming Lee and Aoki Lee

Documents filed yesterday in Los Angeles Supreme Court show that Baby Phat CEO Kimora Lee Simmons is requesting that ex-husband (Phat Farm creator and Baby Phat co-creator) Russell Simmons pay $20,000 per month for each of their two daughters in child support.

This means $240,000 per year for Ming Lee, 8 (up until 2019) and Aoki Lee, 6 (up until 2022) which is a whopping $480,000 in total.

Considering her own personal fortune, do you think Kimora is being reasonable or crazy?

    $20 grand per child ***THATS HEAPS*** Then again these guys are loaded with paper! 40grand to them is nothing. Guess these kids are lucky in this lifetime.

    There needs to be child support reform. This is more like adult support. I hope Russ’s drivers license doesn’t get suspended, like that matters. Personally, I would’ve never given her the divorce. C’mon Russ,… Diddy ain’t warn you bout these hoes.

    Kimora Knows she doesn’t need that money and she can invest it, bank it. The question is would she? Cause she acts like she’s broke and struggling, which is an total insult to the women that are. What’s more appauling then anything she’s not giving them (those innocent Angels) the time they deserve to be with their FATHER. I wish people stop saying she gave up her CAREER for Him she did that for them(Her Girls), she also could have returned back to modelling if she wanted too. Just about everyone else did that is a model. She started a business? Excuse me Russell started her business right? Without “His connections and His wisdom” none of this would have happened. Lets be realistic it wouldn’t happened without the people who can really draw cause she don’t, it wouldn’t happened without the know how people. She knows that better then anyone, without “His name” she wouldn’t have gotten none of this. “Hurry up and get married so you can change your name, better yet why don’t you go back to your maiden name?”. “Since He so unbearable and you were so unhappy with Him”.
    The bottom line she’s trying to erase Russell out of His Girls life so she can replace Russell and make Him look like He don’t want nothing to do with them. He should have a say when it comes down to their lives cause He does love His Girls and their happiness means alot to Him. She is going to make it so difficult for Him to be apart of their lives. He doesn’t care about the money He just want part custody of His Girls and she knows this and she is using them to get back at Russell. If this isn’t true then why didn’t she let it be joint custody (can we say MONEY and CONTROL).
    She supposely have moved on ever since FEB.2007 with Dijimon(handsome man PROTECT YOURSELF “WAKE UP” PROTECT YOURSELF) the best thing that ever happened to her and prego (whatever) and Russell moved on (forgive me can’t think of her name, but she beautiful woman) and He has less to do with her and still thats not enough so she got to hit Him where it hurts HIS GIRLS. Kimora knows that this is hurting Russell, I don’t care what happened between them two, the only thing I care about is how she talks about their DAD to them, how she conducts herself without the insults and the put downs (NO PROVOKING). Russell believe in you, those comments came out of your mouth and looking at her she probably making Russell jump through hoops just so He can see His Girls. Watch this isn’t the end of DRAGON LADY (thats not because of her race I can careless about that its because thats “REALLY MEAN AND CRUEL”. She’s keeping the King from seeing HIS PRINCESSES thats what they do, you know how the story book goes). GOOD LUCK RUSSELL, MAY GOD BE WITH YOU. YOUR GOING TO NEED HIM.

    I don’t know why she turned her back to the camera, as if she has a boodie behind her. Maybe with all the money she’s requesting she’ll take in consideration of buying her some.

  • Lil Lady says:

    I think it is resonable because that is a lifestyle he has gotton he accustumed to so now he has to pay. Do ya thang Kimora I wish you the best in life!!!

  • MsGotIt says:

    She Crazy….that girl dont need all tha damn money, hell she can take care of them kids cause i know she make that and more by her damnself and im pretty sure that he still takes care of em even with them being divorced! Hell if you sit back and think about it, it wouldn’t even be a Baby Phat if it wasnt for him, he taught her everything she know and i bet you if he felt like taking it from he could so she need to be thankful for the lifestyle he gave to her…..she tripping for real and she know it and if i was him i would give her child support but she wouldn’t get that damn much!!!!!

  • bananas4mine says:

    Yall think that’s crazy Lionel Richie wife was asking for at least 300 Gs a month or more in alimony look it up if you don’t believe me. But these men marry these women and shower them with anything they want and get them use to a certain lifestyle and as crazy as it sounds that’s the law that they should have to pay for these woment to keep up their lifestyle but I’m sure the law can be bent if a judge wanted to do so.But I don’t think that is lot to ask for for 2 kids who are use to living the fab lifestyle.These girls do need nannies and bodyguards and etc.there are crazy ass people out there that might try to kidnap them you never know and if I was working on my empire and had to send my girls off I’d pay any amount If I had it to protect them.And lets be real yall who really wants to down size you don’t wanna go from driving a Mercedes to driving a Daewoo forreal.Yeah she got money she makes money but yall still have to consider the fact that it takes money to make money.She has to pay her employees,taxes and all kinds of other bills I think she is doing the right thing yall don’t be so hard on her put yourself in her shoes are you really saying you’d give the guy a break cause he helped her get where she is today?

  • ms LadyDay says:

    nooooooooo i dont think she is crazy ,but i do think that is a bit to much for a six year , old,eight year what can these kids need for if thier parents are both stupid rich.but like i said she is not crazy i just wish they could work things out with each other. all he need to do is give his girls love and support they have the world. I like both of thier clothing line baby phat for my daughter and phat farm for my sons ,if she is greedy like that i will not buy baby phat any more to help support her not that she gives a damm she have other supporters i will spend my money on some body else cloths line.thank you., ms ladyDay

  • gretchen says:

  • fabuliz says:

    yall are hating….Kimora rules, id ask for just as much…Russell should thank Kimora, she did alot for his career too….

  • Tamibu says:

    H3ll yeah she crazy!!!! I just don’t get it she has all this money, and it’s clearly visible that she’ll continue to make money, but honestly if that is what he offered to pay then that’s on him, but any independent strong willed woman in her right mind wouldn’t even suggest the father pay that much money when she making just as much. that’s just greedy.

  • toy says:

    i cannot stand kimora lee…

    I’m a dad going thru divorce for the past 4 years, and I think that both parent should be forced to contribute with emotional and parental support. Money causes many barriers with that next step, not only before the divorce, but more so after. It is ridiculous that perception gives one gender more credibility that the other. Which is legendary and in the late decades we have been fighting against. Like females in the military for example. I have a 5 year old and I love him to death; I’m sure his mother loves him in the same capacity, but does that make her the parent that is most fit to raise our child? Feels like my time with my son was taken away, when she decided to sleep around and that she was un-happy. So my question for Ms. Kimora and society for that matter is, can we push more rules that discourage separation and not seem like an easy financial way out for one gender? Hell females for that matter. sorry, but my perception is my reality. Women this days are saying “the hell with you, we getting a divorce and I’m keeping the house”, “oh and child support”… and now as a dad what are we thinking about? Another man is going to pick up my son from basketball practice because his mom decided she was un-happy?. I’m not hating on what seems like the new “game”, which I know has been going on for a long time, but is new to me… Ladies please don’t encourage this or support it… because lets be real what is the aftermath? Kids not being raise by their biological father, not the same love (no its not, trust me)… and now the father just runs away… he finds out you are pregnant and BOOOM “I’m out”, because we know what the outcome is based on that perception that was created with the money involvement… and this is not something I’m passing to my son, but the whole thing is unfair to one gender and comes to down to affect future generation. Just my take on it from the front lines of a future CSD (child support daddy)… both parents should be forced to provide EQUAL support, not just because the mother carried the child for 9 month should she be the one credited as most fit to raise the child and on her own for that matter… look at where is at!!!!!…yeah they make a lot of money (Russell & Kimora)… but when ever celebs do something crazy and society starts to accept this it becomes some type of crazy norm… 20,000 a month to raise a little girl????? come on… let’s put reasonable person standards here…. I’m in the military, currently serving in Afghanistan, and 60 percent of the population here do not make more that 100,000 a year. (and we dying ya’ll) I might make 70,000 because I do not get taxed in a combat zone, if I was in the states, I would probably make 50,000… I have been serving for 13 years. What makes Ms. Kimora think she needs about 5 times my salary to raise 2 little girls???? Please help me understand… maybe for the same reason that sport figures need millions and soldiers dying for our country get paid less that people that work in McDonalds… BS

  • neph says:

    Thats NOT KRAZY. ITS RIGHT. RUSSLE MAKES ALOT OF MONEY. SO ACCORDING TO HIM IS HOW HIS KIDS ARE PAID. REMEMBER THAT. IM SURPRISED ITS NOT MORE THAN THAT……

  • Tahir White says:

    its half a mill,thats nothing to russel!
    I’ve seen worse!
    He should just pay it and worry about the future.

  • Renee says:

    First and foremost,is the emotional welbeing of the children. Childrenof divorced parents should not be used as pawns.divorce is not a game.children need to know that they are loved by both parents.I pray that Kimora and Russell think about this. God Bless all of them.

  • kelsy says:

    i think she’s being reasonable even if she had all the money in the world he still needs to give money to his daughters it’s all good to make them but then when it comes to the money they try to fade away…

  • High-quality article, it’s real awesome. I did a search on the subject and found most folks will consent with your site. Thank’s for you advise. I believe you made some good points in features also.My site with syma helicopter ready to fly.

  • karen says:

    whether or not she has her own money and how she got it is not the issue being discussed. they are his kids too so he is supposed to help support them. children are not cheap to take care of and it will also be nice if they had money put aside for when they are older to go to college and maybe even to start businesses of their own so i don’t see anything wrong with that amount so all the haters need to stop hating.
