Russell Simmons Has All the Feels for His Beautiful ‘Blended Family’

The mogul dishes on his BFF.

Russell Simmons and Kimora Lee Simmons may not be together anymore, but their relationship sounds like it's better than ever. In fact, the hip hop mogul says he and his ex-wife are still the best of friends in an emotional Instagram post. And that's not just lip service: Rush also reveals he's the godfather of one of her children and that he's in business with her husband Tim Leissner. He even had nice things to say about her ex Djimon Hounsou.

Uncle Rush said that during one of his moments of meditation, he was hit with a wave of gratitude for how amazing his ex-wife is, thanking her for their beautiful blended family, which includes two children she went on to have with two partners after their 2009 divorce.
