Kimora Lee Simmons

Rap mogul Russell Simmons’ estranged wife Kimora Lee Simmons is demanding $480,000 in child support as part of the couple’s divorce settlement.

In documents filed on Wednesday at Los Angeles Superior Court, the fashion model-turned-designer is asking for $20,000 per month for each of the couple’s two daughters.

The papers suggest Def Jam Records co-founder Simmons’ should be expected to pay the huge sum each month until 2019 for Ming Lee, eight, and 2022 for Aoki, five, according to TMZ.com.

The couple wed in 1998 and split in 2006, citing irreconcilable differences.

The pair are seeking joint physical and legal custody of their children.

Both parties are also asking the court to deny spousal support for the other.

Kimora Lee Simmons: I’m not an extreme diva

Kimora Lee Simmons

Kimora Lee Simmons has a lesson to share about married life – and it’s not all fabulous.

“When you get married, you’re forced to drink the milk long after it’s spoiled,” the designer, 33, tells Giant magazine for its June/July 2008 issue.

Simmons – who in March filed for divorce from her husband of 10 years, Russell Simmons – is now dating actor-model Djimon Hounsou, and is never one to shy away from knocking down tabloid talk when it comes to her personal life.

“I hear the craziest things, like, ‘She has to have a champagne glass filled within a quarter inch of the lip,’ ” says Simmons, who dismisses any notion that she might be an “extreme diva.”

“The reality, is I’m a dedicated mother [to daughters Ming Lee, 8, and Aoki Lee, 5] and a very kind, funny and hardworking person,” she says. “My reality-TV show helps to shed a bit of light, but even that’s glamorized.”

Ultimately, she says, she doesn’t care what others think of her, though “sometimes people who don’t know me say really cruel things that are way off base. But you can’t care too much about what people think of you. You have to establish your own set of core values and live by them”

And those core values? “Honor, respect, tenacity, intelligence and humor,” she says, adding, “Do your best, and live with the repercussions of your choices – good or bad.”

Kimora Lee Simmons demands faux-fur coat for her Barbie doll

Kimora Lee Simmons

Model-turned-fashion mogul Kimora Lee Simmons’ new Barbie doll comes with a faux-fur coat, in a bid to show young girls they can look “fabulous” without skinning animals.

The designer and reality TV star admits she was thrilled when toymakers Mattel decided to model a Barbie in her likeness, but she had one recommendation.

She says, “She has a faux-fur chinchilla coat, because I want to show kids that synthetic fur can be fabulous, too. She’s everything a Barbie is supposed to be.”

Simmons isn’t the only celebrity to inspire a modern Barbie – a Hilary Duff doll has also been created recently.
