BDR: “Kimora IS a Good Mother”

Russell Simmons wants to set the record straight regarding yesterday’s child support ruling:

“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.”

Nuff said. One thing is for sure. This brotha is never short on words (except for when he’s closing out Def Comedy Jam).

    He is right. Those gyrls are accustomed to a certain lifestyle…and I believe if nothing else Kimora is a good mom to her kids.

    numero uno putas!!!!!!!!!

    sidebar** I really think it’s crazy that KLS is ONLY giving Russie visitation and not JOINT custody. those kids will be with nannies and sitters most of the time anyway so why not let them be with their dad!

    I’m glad to see two parents that equally love there children the same. I’m just curious how time they spend with either parent vs the nanny????

    classy couple

    Can’t we just be proud of grown folks acting grown, doing what’s right without looking for the negative? BDR mans up to his responsibilities, gives public respect to the mother of his children and aint shy about doing so. I respect that.

  • intenzemocha

    GET EM TOLD RUSSEL

    AND I AM GLAD THAT HE POINTED OUT THE FACT THAT KIMORA IS A GOOD MOTHER AND HE TRUSTS HER JUDGEMENT

    PEOPLE NEED TO STOP TRYING TO MAKE AN ISSUE OUT OF A NON-ISSUE-IF KIMORA AND RUSSEL ARE OKAY WITH THE AGREEMENT THEN THAT IS ALL THAT REALLY MATTERS

    KUDOS TO RUSSEL FOR KEEPING IT CLASSY!

  • Lou in the Chi

    People just love to hate. He’s giving the woman her props and some of yall still on here talking bad about her. 20k a month is not taking him to the cleaners. And why would he need joint custody when he’s just as busy as she is and the girls live on the opposite coast. They need stability, and it sounds like he’s fine with the situation so yall should be too.

  • Aunt Viv

    Interesting…

  • G.SHAREI

    I love Kimora! I think it’s beautiful that she and Rus have that type of relationship! Too bad people want to point out things that don’t matter more than things that do. Wish I was one of their kids. lol

  • DeLeRoCkA

    i am not sure why these people feel the need to explain anything to the public – we live in a unreal world fill with much craziness,

    Yeah, he really came out with that response quick is that because so many people we’re talking about Kimora in such a wreckless way yesterday.

    Peace!

    Like i said before, there is no benefit for men to get married and have kids. The whole notion of fatherhood in the eye of modern day society is “DISPOSABLE”. Men are viewed as sperm donors and as monthly ATM cards. Why wasn’t he at least granted joint custody? If you can take over 480.ooo dollars a year in child support, then why is he only granted visitation rights as if he’s some sort of long distant pervy uncle? Like i said, brothas’ don’t get married. If your paternal instincts start kickin’ in, get a dog, it’s less expensive + no aggravation.

    whats in the black vogue

    let me guess, black people

    funny!!!
